NBA Trade Rumors: Do Andrea Bargnani's Comments Means He Wants out of Toronto?
NBA Trade Rumors Will Andrea Bargnani's Comments Lead to The Raptors Trading Him?
The Toronto Raptors lost their star player last offseason when Chris Bosh "took his talents to South Beach".
Without much star power left, in the midst of a rebuilding effort the Raptors could be sellers this offseason.
Andrea Bargnani's skill set could draw interest from many clubs, and before his most recent interview with a Italy's Sky Sports it seemed as though he'd be with the Raptors for the foreseeable future.
Here's what the forward had to say in a Toronto Star report when asked what he'd do if he could transport to a different NBA city:
I want to stay in Toronto, at least this is the politically correct answer. If (I am) to go somewhere else, I’d like a warm climate city and a team where I can actually play in my role.
This isn't a full-blown trade demand from Bargnani, but the Raptors were open to trading him this season, and these comments tell me that he'd be fine with playing with another team.
I'm a little baffled with Bargnani's "a team where I can actually play in my role" quote. The same Toronto Star report said the following:
The Raptors, don't forget, allowed him to jack up 17.8 field-goal attempts a game this past season, second-most among NBA players who haven't made an all-star team.
I just think Bargnani would flourish with better players around him. He's a great spot up shooter, similar to Danilo Gallinari.
