Default Is bargnani getting traded?

There's a poll in the NBA website on who is getting traded first. Between Andrea Bargnani, Courtney Lee, Darren Collison, and Paul Milisap. Bargnani leading the poll. Can this really happen? Please let this happen.

That mini orgasm you get when you log in, look down at the Raptors forum and see the words "Bargnani" and "traded" in the same sentence. Way to get my hopes up.

Kobe might have a higher chance of being traded from the Lakers.

So I looked on NBA.com and they're still talking about that rumored Bargs/Calderon for Pau trade. As much as I want Bargs gone, I seriously don't want to see that particular trade happen. There is no point in getting a guy who's gonna bring us to 1st round elimination status while taking away minutes from Davis and Val.

This is what BC said.

The Raptors, sources say, are leery of taking a flier on yet another international player, despite Gasol's obvious and longstanding talents. GM Bryan Colangelo has gone this route before, remember -- signing Jorge Garbajosa, drafting Bargnani, signing Hedo Turkoglu -- and even though Gasol would fit in with just about any team, including, most assuredly, the 7-19 Raptors, Toronto isn't ready to pull the trigger.
Besides, Bargnani's torn elbow is expected to keep him out another month, making a deal for him unlikely until he returns. The same goes for Calderon; with starter Kyle Lowry (torn triceps) out for a while, the Raptors have to keep Calderon, in the final year of his contract, around. (He also has a trade kicker, 10 percent.)
But if a Lakers deal for Bargnani isn't in the cards, league sources are convinced the Raptors will eventually move him somewhere. "Bryan is going to move him, no doubt," a rival GM said Sunday evening.
Colangelo said Sunday that he was not under the gun to win this season from the team's new owners, even though the Raptors got Lowry from Houston this summer -- after an unsuccessful courtship of Steve Nash -- precisely because they wanted to jump-start their team's performance this season, feeling a legit point guard would help the likes of DeMar DeRozan and rookie center Jonas Valanciunas.
"We're not going to bow to pressure," Colangelo said. "That pressure is obviously something that's important to all of us, because we play a game that's based on pressure. Hopefully we respond to the pressure. We're not going to make any quick, rash moves."
(If Calderon is dealt, my guess is it won't be for Gasol, or for any player, but to a team that can send Toronto a pick back and create a huge $15.6 million trade exception for the Raptors.)

that's basically his way of saying we going to trade him but our price is not going to drop. A player who is obviously going to get traded will always sell for less, teams know they can get a steal. He doesn't want to get shafted. Probably the reason no deal has been made yet, every GM is probably low balling the shit out of us

Trade Bargnani - Jose - anyone - unless of course a "new management strategy" to to successfully tank and get the ping pong balls to drop exactly right

Compare this : December 15th ish 2012

To this stement : October 30 2012

“We want to accelerate the process towards our end goal, which is to return to playoff contention, and then take it to the next step beyond that,” says Colangelo, leaning against a wall in the Air Canada Centre. “But right now, this is the next step.”

I think Bargs' value is way too low to get somebody decent, let alone high draft picks, at this point. Bargs for Pau doesn't sound right either.
