Going to wait to see what happens here.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Yeah I know they have a plan in place, and I'm definitely interested in seeing it unfold.

I just hope they don't make a terrible mistake. I want to see the Raptors back in the playoffs, their fans deserve it, some of the best fans in the NBA.

I think the Kings got the steal of the draft in Thomas Robinson. Robinson/Cousins is gonna be beastly, and add that in with other young talent like Evans, Thomas, Thornton, Thompson, even Jimmer. I think they'll be in the playoffs, not this year but in the 2013-14 season.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I mistake would have been would have been going off course to trade for Pau and giving up their pick. Even signing Nash doesn't threaten the future and makes them more competitive now and allows them to compete for a low seed in the playoffs (which isn't exactly difficult to get). They have a lot of pieces in place now. JONAS is coming in. A few free agent signings to keep them competitive now and they are on the right track.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

West is too old for Sacramento to make the playoffs, they aren't jumping Utah, Houston and GSW, they need the Spurs, mavs, and Lakers to age enough to miss the playoffs.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

It seems more of a business move more than the team heading in the right direction.

Though it will be great for Nash to mentor Jonas V

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Calderon is irrelvent to their future. Their future pieces are Bayless, Bargnani, Ross, Jonas, DeRozan, Davis and in some ways James Johnson. Adding a guy like Nash allows them to be better now, helps mould these guys and doesn't give up any assets. Getting rid of Calderon helps bring in Nash. It's the price you pay.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

East is so bad, a guy like Nash could will the Raptors into the 8th seed.

Okay, maybe not. But still...the East sucks.

The Raptors may make the Play-offs, lose in the first round. Nash retires in 1 or 2 years, this will seem like great progress by the ownership but imo its not. I should wait to se where it goes before making more judgement though

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Really not sure why the Bulls aren't looking at Nash, and letting Rose sitout the entire season.

Do not see the point of him coming back in April, and then playing in a playoff series vs the 1 or 2 seed. And I'm not even that confident they'll make the playoffs like a lot of Bulls fans are.
