WojBomb: Raptors Acquire Nando de Colo in Exchange for Austin Daye


And so the timeless question has been answered. Yes, Austin Daye does have trade value, apparently.

UPDATE (3:20 PM)

Here’s the scoop on Nando de Colo. He’s a 6’5 combo guard who can handle the ball and sink open three-pointers at a respectable clip. He’s slated to earn $1.46 million this season, and he will be an unrestricted free-agent this offseason. He’ll probably split minutes at third-string point guard, and backup shooting guard.

With de Colo on board, the Raptors now have three capable ball-handlers off the bench. Austin Daye hasn’t seen the floor since Prince was on Apollonia, so good on Ujiri to turn dead fodder into potentially semi-conscious fodder.

More importantly, the passing of the trade deadline means Kyle Lowry will remain a Raptor for the remainder of the season, before becoming an unrestricted free-agent this offseason.
