    Moved to Toronto's bench, sat out last game with an 'injury' ...

    I'd gladly take him off Toronto's hands and make him the primary backup for both Rip and Tay.

    Dear Joe,

    I noticed you have a vacancy on the bench. Please adopt MoPete. He would be the best addition to the family that you have made in years, and would give you the opportunity to do a little house cleaning.

    Best Regards,
    DARTHTEAM

    I don't advocate trading our backup center when our starter can only play around 20 mins.

    I don't want to see Delfino leave... Peterson is decent, but Delfino can be just as good as him. And now that I've seen him struggeling for 3 years, I feel with him just like I still feel with Darko. :)

    what do you mean?
    Probably I'm simply a guy who keeps everything even if he doesn't need it any longer or if it doesn't serve its original purposes because of newer additions. This is probably the reason why I'm still having tons of old magazins and Comic books in my apartment.

    peterson is a better player, better shooter, more experienced, and fits into our offense. plus he's a good defender. delfino could be put to better use in toronto with the style they're trying to instill.

    I have to admit that I've got absolutely no idea if Peterson is good.
    My main problem (besides that I don't want to see Delfino leave although he enver played much) is that our bench is pretty thin and if Peterson is really better than Delfino, Toronto has no need to trade him for a weaker player- or do they need a translator for Garbajosa and Calderon?
    And packing 2 players of our already weak bench for one means the bench can provide even less. Even the NBA power rankings were stating that 4 starters are averaging 35+ mpg.

    Wondering if this is the reason D.D. has been getting some burn lately... to show he still has some game to other GM's
    It looks like Sheed is being positioned more as a center to create spacing.... as he slows down (and adds weight) this position may fit him better and allow the youngsters a chance to play.
    Delfino may have more upside than Mo... he's a little too cool for school.... Mo fits our team better now.

    but how does our potential offer compare with what other teams might offer?

    and with dale gone... maxiel would actually get some minutes. this would be a great trade for us.
