That trade only made sense when Calderon still resided in Toronto. Financially and in terms of talent.
The Raptors would have to give up some serious young talent for that trade to work now. At this point, Bargnani is not only a bust, but as injury prone as they come. When was the last time he played anything close to a full season? Gasol trumps Bargnani in literally every category; Bargnani couldn't even do the one thing that's suppose to be his forte - shoot well.
