NBA Trade Scenarios: 6 Teams That Could Use Andrea Bargnani

As one of the lone bright spots during an otherwise unimpressive season for the Toronto Raptors, Andrea Bargnani took over for Chris Bosh as one of the main stars on the only team in the NBA from Canada.

The 25-year-old center from Italy averaged 21.4 points and 5.2 rebounds in 35.7 minutes per game in 2010 as the Raptors finished their season second-to-last in the Eastern Conference in front of only the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 22-60 record.

Bargnani was recently quoted as saying he would like to go to a warm climate city where he can "actually play his role" if he were to leave Toronto.

He quickly made a statement following those comments saying he loved Toronto and did not want Raptors fans to take what he said out of context.

However, teams around the league would welcome a young center like Bargnani because of his offensive skill set. The only problem with Bargnani's game is his rebounding and defense, both skills that he can work on.
