The NBA trade deadline goes down Thursday at 3 p.m. It figures to be a little quieter for the Toronto Raptors than last year, and it may not even come into focus for some fans until after a marquee matchup with the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night. In any case, it’s probably helpful to have a place everyone can discuss their trade deadline ideas, wish-lists, and rumor mongering.
As a reminder, the Raptors aren’t in a particularly great space in financial terms to make a huge move, not because they’re cheap but because of, you know, the rules that govern the league.
I wrote this in December, but the explanations within still hold for the Raptors for deadline week. Hopefully a helpful tool as you work through your trade ideas & yell at Masai. @TheAthleticTO https://t.co/PAwGBUQ9hx

(By the way, there was originally going to be a mailbag post going up today but it’s threatening to be 10,000 words so I’m bumping it until tomorrow.)
