The Raptors have been trying to peddle Andrea Bargnani to Charlotte but they would likely have to take back Ben Gordon in order to reach a deal according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Sam Amico of Foxsports says that the Raptors have also been talking to Philadelphia about a deal involving Bargnani. The suspicion is, Spencer Hawes would head in the other direction in a deal. Probably not enough for the Raptors to pull the trigger there.

On the other side of the deal, Chris Paul told USA Today’s Sam Amick that he is OK with the current roster the way it sits. Considering the fact that Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan can;t share the floor in crunch time due to poor free-throw shooting, maybe he shouldn’t be.
