Just read this article on TSN and thought it does a pretty good job setting the stage for the upcoming trade deadline, from the Raptors' perspective.
The Raptors go into the all-star break with more wins than ever before and while their first-half success has heightened external expectations, internally the organization's intentions remain the same. Continue to let their young core grow individually and as a collective unit, which they have. Defend their Atlantic Division title, which they will. And advance into the second round of the playoffs, which they might.
With the NBA's Feb. 19 trade deadline approaching, it would be a surprise to see Masai Ujiri veer from that plan or mortgage their future to expedite the building process.If they can use any of the others - apart from intriguing rookie Bruno Caboclo - perhaps an expiring contract or two, to pick up a fourth big, upgrading their depth in the frontcourt with a long, athletic rim protector, that's something you would expect them to seriously consider.
But unless that opportunity presents itself or an offer jumps off the page, expect deadline day to come and go without much noise from the Raptors.
