To further cloud the discussion I would point out those who wish to build with what is on the roster tend to think this team is fairly good as is. Those who are happy as losses pile up tend to realize the team is not very good.
I will point out one thing about this trade which adds to the argument p00ka typically puts forth and takes away one of the key arguments I had used about trying to win with the team as is: financial flexibility. The Raptors actually have it now.
To be the ever pessimist tank driver I am though I will also highlight trading for a top talent is likely to be difficult with Ujiri's proclamations of building through the draft and free agency is not a realistic option at this time just because the Raptors smell of losing and, in my opinion, are a couple of seasons ways away from shedding it at best.
