Andrea Bargnani has been in the middle of trade rumors for a while, but especially so this season. He admits he has heard all the talk -- and even understands it.
“No, of course it doesn’t affect me, but I think it does make sense on this team,” Bargnani said. “Who else would you blame? I don’t really know what you want me to answer.”
“Of course I hear the trade rumors. But trades are part of the job. Since the first day I joined this team seven years ago, I knew I could be traded. That’s the reality. From Day 1 you know that can happen at any time.”
Bargnani has received criticism from Toronto Raptors' fans because his scoring is down and he doesn't show much emotion on the court.
The Raptors had reportedly inquired about Pau Gasol.
