The Toronto Raptors have been shopping forward Andrea Bargnani but have yet to find a buyer, according to USA TODAY Sports.
Bargnani suffered an elbow injury in Monday night’s 92-74 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, but x-rays were negative and it remains unclear how long he will be sidelined.
The paper states that Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo is looking to make a deal as the team has stumbled out of the gate with a 4-18 record to open the season.
Point guard Jose Calderon is also said to have made it clear that he would like to move on to greener pastures as well.
The report, which is about coaches who are starting to feel the heat, states that Raptors coach Dwane Casey and Colangelo are safe at the moment despite the team’s miserable start and that it is more likely to see Colangelo shake up the roster in the near future.
Things could be happening. You could easily argue that both these players should’ve been traded two years ago, and at worst, the season should’ve started with these two significant remnants of the past shifted.
