    They can attempt to create what they few as a positive match-up, but it's not in their control. They only thing that they can control is losing. They can't guarantee that Washington wins to pass...

    Defensive Slide?

    From the point that Rudy Gay was shipped to Sacramento, the Toronto Raptors have made their mark on the NBA winning over 66% of their games. Over that stretch, they were one of only a few teams to...

    It also means that cost controllable assets, such as the draft picks that were acquired for Harden, have even greater meaning to OKC than they would for many other teams in the league. The hope was...

    Not only that, but Ujiri has been very open that he would prefer the end of the bench players to be younger. If you fill roster spot 15 with a 38 year old, there is no room for improvement or...

    That is a big difference, for both positive and negative reasons. Some teams may find it hard to take on a contract with the length of Holiday's. 4 years and 44 million remaining is huge money. ...

    That Sacramento pick is top 10-12 protected through the next several years. After that, if is hasn't be conveyed as a mid-late (somehow) first round pick, it becomes a second round pick. If we are...

    Would be fantastic to get a prospect with potential high end abilities within the second round. I could see him sliding into the mid-twenties, but second round pick would be an insane drop.

    Late lottery may even be a stretch. Teams had the same concerns about Nikola Mirotic and when (if?) he would come to the NBA. It hurt his draft stock so much he fell to 23rd overall in the 2011...

    That could have been one of the worst halfs of basketball Toronto has played this season...and yet they remain within 5. Raptors should pull away in the third.

    If that's the case, there is no possible trade option. Between Hayes, Fields, and Lowry, the Raptors would be sending out over $18mil in salary. How would New York match this? In order to make the...

    I love that we finally have a GM who is okay with waiting. He waits for what he wants, and if it isn't offered, he doesn't accept. Patience is a virtue, and Masai is virtuous!
