I will support you so long as you have Flynn on your roster...

And go OKC!!
So if Toronto does as they look to be doing...

PG Jose Calderon
SG DeMar Derozan
SF Hedo Turokoglu
PF Shawn Marion
C Chris Bosh

If DeMar mans up, and Shawn and Hedo play well and develop some bangin chemistry with Jose & Chris, this could be a top 4 team in the East...
I though Shawn Marion was a free agent though.

Raptors Offer Marion Four-Year Deal?
Jul 03, 2009 2:24 PM EST

The Raptors have offered free-agent forward Shawn Marion a four-year deal worth more than $32 million, according to the Globe and Mail.

The deal could be worth as much as $34 million, according to the report, and is longer and more lucrative than the three-year, $21 million offer Toronto was reported to have made to Marion.

The Raptors had been serious in their pursuit of Shawn Marion and Carlos Delfino. Now the most likely scenario is that they'll be renounced or traded, along with Anthony Parker. To clear the kind of cap room that would be required to sign Turkoglu would probably take renouncing every free agent Toronto has, including Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Jake Voskuhl and some cap holds from players overseas. That would give the Raptors room to offer Turkoglu more money than Portland was offering -- although there are plenty of details left to be worked out, especially as Toronto may first try to trade some of those players instead of letting them go for nothing.

I'm still not sold on our head coach, and thats a good starting 5, but I'm sure about the bench..we can spend all the money we want on the starters, but won't get anywhere without a bench.
If Toronto wants to save some money the lakers can give them 7 mil in expiring for Marion

In the East...a solid starting 5 can do you something...and you got Joey off the bench dont you? I like him...but thats about it...lol, so yeah, you need to find some more peices to add to your bench...

Zero defense in that lineup.
