There is so little news going on with the Toronto Raptors, it feels like Christmas when anything comes up on the wire. This little gem has started to service.

In following a model first tested by Be?ikta? in the signing of Deron Williams, Virtus Roma is pursuing Andrea Bargnani with at least two offers. One is a three-month deal and the other is a full-season contract pending resurrection of the 2011-12 NBA season. There is also a proposal for a new sponsor to help defray the locked out Toronto Raptor’s insurance costs. Any guesses who? I gave you a hint earlier. Yep, AshleyMadison.com, a website with the slogan “Life is short. Have affairs” and known as “The world’s leading married dating service for discreet encounters.” So many stories, so many jokes.

Is the Vatican Against Andrea Bargnani Signing With Virtus Roma?

The website “Ashley Madison” (which is in the business of helping you cheat on your husband or wife) has offered to pick up the tab for Andrea Bargnani’s contract with Virtus Roma.

No Kobe, but looks like Italy may get Andrea Bargnani back

Kobe Bryant for Andrea Bargnani is not a fair trade. Not even in Italy. But it seems to be what has happened — with Kobe out of the picture (save for maybe a “Kobe Cup” tour) it appears Virtus Roma (not the team after Kobe) is close to signing the Raptors forward, according to La…

Andrea Bargnani: Don’t believe the hype about Virtus Roma, Ashley Madison and me

Well, that’ll end those rumors for the time being … Despite the fact that would-be prospective Virtus Roma sponsor AshleyMadison.com has gone so far as to design a jersey for the basketball club (pictured at right) and the Vatican itself has come out decrying the controversial choice of commercial backer, the actual raison de être for the chatter has denied he’s involved....

Kevin Garnett Slows Negotiations; Andrea Bargnani To Italy

You can thank Kevin Garnett for the lockout. No, he isn’t playing the same role he did in the last one when his newly-minted $126 million contract was seen as the albatross that the owners needed to kill and never allow to come back from the dead.
