Draft Picks and Cap Space

Thats what we get for Bosh? Draft Picks and a huge trade exception, we could of taken Beasley back who is in the last year of his guaranteed rookie contract at less than 5million.  We would still have a huge trade exception.  For those of you who dislike Beasley remember this is a guy who averaged 15points/6boards a steal and 0.6 blocks.  Worst case scenario is we lose him at the end of the year. Do we really feel that a raptors team starting Derozan, Bargnani, Turk, Jose, Johnson is going to be a title contender? Instead we turn down a player who is 21 who is already a proven scorer with off court issues.  If Zach randolph can turn it around in memphis why cant Beasley in Toronto?

 

The scary thoughts on this, we now have a  huge trade exception. What are we going to do with this? I hope we dont end up trading away the youth that has shown promise for another bad contract.  I.e. Derozan, Weems and Turk for Arenas.  I am not sure what everyone elses thoughts are on this but taking back Beasley would of been a gamble, but its a one year gamble that could of paid huge dividends if we get lucky.  We now have a 16million dollar trade exception instead of an 11million dollar trade exception.
