Toronto sends Johnson, Davis, 2023 2nd, 2025 2nd for John Collins...

is it enough or does Toronto have to send a future 1st instead of 2 2nds?


1.) 23 Nov 2020 16:16:47
I think Atlanta can get a better offer for John Collins.

2.) 25 Nov 2020 19:21:35
Let me see if I got this right. Two players who started 2 game between them in the regular season last year plus two bland 2nd round picks for a young 20/ 10 player who continues to get better each year. Sorry, can’t ever see it happening.

Houston sends Westbrook to NYK for Gibson, Portis, 2021 1st from Dallas

Houston sends Harden to BRK for Allen, LaVert, Dinwiddie, 2020 1st from Philadelphia, Houston protected 2023 1st

Salaries work
Houston has room on roster for all, but could refuse team option on Portis if timed right.

If FVV does not resign with Raptors...


Toronto trades Terrance Davis and 2nd round pick (this year) for Danny Green


1.) 15 Nov 2020 23:43:09
OKC? What?

2.) 16 Nov 2020 01:51:20
Why. Danny isn't what he use to be and he didn't do much for the raptors.

3.) 16 Nov 2020 04:06:11
Darry seems like he's not updated.

4.) 16 Nov 2020 14:05:48
Green is still much loved in Toronto. Davis is going to have to go due to his off-court issues. If Freddy signs elsewhere then Raps will have room for Green's 1 year 15M and won't have to make a deal that carries over into next season to replace FVV for this season.
Green isn't the scorer or ball handler FVV is, but he is still a strong defender who knows Nurse's systems and can be plugged right in.

5.) 16 Nov 2020 15:25:01
Ahhhh I'm so bad at updates.



06 Feb 2020 22:07:35
Buyout market....
I'm not sure why Cleveland made the deal for Drummond, but I'm predicting that will lead to a buyout for Tristan Thompson. He'll then sign with the Raptors for the rest of the year.


1.) 06 Feb 2020 22:55:32
It’s already came out that they Cavs won’t buy out TT.

2.) 06 Feb 2020 23:51:05
What do you think about that deal for Drummond? Was it a steal or what?

3.) 07 Feb 2020 01:01:32
but why would they keep him if they want to give his minutes to Drummond?

4.) 07 Feb 2020 07:15:56
I heard that they will sign and trade them. There is only a few teams have salary cap.

5.) 07 Feb 2020 13:31:39
asdenam i'm guessing that's going to work out just as well as the Love contract that was going to make him more tradeable lol.

6.) 07 Feb 2020 20:37:04
There’s talk that Tristan might not have wanted a buy out because he needs a team to have his bird rights for him to go a decent team for more than a minimum contract.

7.) 07 Feb 2020 22:09:05
I think Thompson wanted to stay because the Cavs could pay him more, then wanted to be traded when he found out they weren't going to. they said they wouldn't buy him out when they were trying to pressure Houston to make an offer. now they have Drummond the situation changes. I wouldn't be surprised to see a buyout. I hope he comes to Toronto if he is, but he may go to Houston where there would be a bigger role available.



23 Jan 2020 16:44:03
Out - Hollis-Jefferson, McCaw, 2020 1st
In - Rose

Out - Rose
In - TOR 2020 1st, Hollis-Jefferson, McCaw

Is this enough for Rose?
Will Toronto think he's worth a 1st?


1.) 23 Jan 2020 17:04:47
That seems like the low end of a plausible package for him. I don’t see why the Raptors would target a 3 pg though.

2.) 23 Jan 2020 18:19:28
It would be because they run FVV and Lowry in the starting lineup, both at heavy minutes. I would also assume possibly as insurance with Lowry expiring next season and Vanvleet set for free agency.

3.) 24 Jan 2020 16:14:12
So basically Pistons get hosed and Toronto gets a player who has played at his former MVP level. The first is going to be low and the two players they get have been bench players at best. Detroit can get more passes.

4.) 29 Jan 2020 22:24:03
I wouldn't trade RHJ just because there short on his position. and they would be better off trading McCaw and Stanley and a second round. but with that being said rose isn't worth a first round pick.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 14:09:11
Rose is worth a first; can't see him fitting in with 2 pg's already. would have to include a third team.

If you were GM of your favorite team starting now, what would your offseason plan be?

Me... for Raptors

Resign FVV (4yr/$84M)
Resign Ibaka (1yr/$20M)
Resign Boucher (1yr/$3M)
Resign Brissette (min)
Keep Watson for 2nd year of 2 way
Keep Hernandez and Thomas
Keep Lowry, OG, Powell and McCaw
Trade Stanley Johnson for a bag of basketballs
Trade Davis for 2 future 2nds
Let Gasol, Hollis-Jefferson, Miller walk

Sign Kris Dunn (1yr/$3M)(MLE non taxpayer)
Sign Willie Cauley=Stein (1yr/$3M)(MLE)

Sign Flynn to standard 1st round contract
Sign Jalen Harris to 2 way
Sign an undrafted player to a 1+1 at $1M per


1.) 20 Nov 2020 18:20:08
you still have 3 million left in the mle, who would you want?

2.) 20 Nov 2020 22:46:54
but i have my 15 contracts. i think i'd just sit on that 3M in case i need to make a deal sometime during the season.

3.) 20 Nov 2020 22:48:29
and a little buffer if dunn or WCS cost more than 3.



29 Oct 2020 14:29:52
The Toronto media has already decided the Raptors have to trade Terrance Davis, despite not all facts coming out yet... who would offer what?

Remembering what happened to Roberto Osuna of the Jays in a similar situation its apparent that the Toronto market is very unforgiving when it comes to domestic violence...


1.) 29 Oct 2020 22:44:40
I don't understand why the Raptors would trade Davis. . . what he does off-court really has nothing to do with his being on the roster or not.

C'mon, Toronto, you're supposed to be a supportive fan base.

2.) 30 Oct 2020 01:37:58
I agree with you that they shouldn't. but i think the media will make it near impossible to keep him. doug smith of the star is the biggest raptor fan going but his column today called for getting rid of him.
i wish more people could see a kid making a mistake and being given a second chance if he shows to be deserving of it. but everyone wants quick justice.

3.) 30 Oct 2020 02:25:45
Darry- optics, decision making and just morals. I don’t spend money at places I don’t think hold my values.

4.) 30 Oct 2020 12:50:40
@Shiller77 like wlndrapsfan said, he's a kid who made a mistake.

5.) 30 Oct 2020 15:16:34
If anyone did that at any other job, they lose their job. I don’t think it’s crazy to call for the job of a guy that hit his girlfriend next to her son, injuring her son, and stealing and breaking her phone after. And he’s 23, he’s not that young. Old enough to know that beating your girlfriend isn’t ok.

6.) 30 Oct 2020 18:39:19
If at 23 you don’t know keep your hands off women and need excuses. That’s sad to me.



16 Oct 2020 23:55:18
I've just taken the job as Houston's new GM and have decided the only way out of this roster mess is to trade James Harden... give me your best offers....


1.) 17 Oct 2020 08:50:45
Pacers send Oladipo, Warren, Turner and 2 1st round picks for Harden and Tucker.

2.) 17 Oct 2020 15:47:19
The Cavs probably have the assets to make a competitive deal, but it would be hard to do, while keeping enough to be able to put a competent roster around Harden. I guess Garland, KPJ, Drummond, the 5th pick and the Bucks 21 1st. You’d probably have to go after a dinged star like Oladipo after that and find a way to bring some role players in. You keep TT.

3.) 17 Oct 2020 16:40:26
McCollum, Ariza, Little, Simons, #15, 2022 top 3 protected first for Harden and Covington.

4.) 17 Oct 2020 17:31:28
JJJ Brooks Anderson/ or Winslow and picks.

5.) 19 Oct 2020 04:26:10
GSW sends Wiggins, Looney, 2nd pick, 2021 Minny 1st, 2022 1st, 2020 2nd, 2021 2nd.

6.) 19 Oct 2020 12:14:21
Steph/ Harden/ Klay would be devastating, but would the defense work?

7.) 19 Oct 2020 20:03:47
Steph has become a fine defender at PG. Klay is an elite defender. Harden is ok too, not the total liability he was 3 years ago. They wouldn’t be leading the league in defense. But with Green, Klay, and a third player that’s a plus defender, they’d be good enough.



23 Feb 2020 03:24:41
Next season, who's coaching?



1.) 23 Feb 2020 16:02:55
Rivers, Walton and whomever is in Milwaukee are going to still be there.

Everybody else is or will be looking for new coaching. Add San Antonio to the mix. Think Pop is done after the Olympics.

2.) 23 Feb 2020 20:19:59
I'm not sure Rivers sticks if the Clippers fail in the playoffs. I think he needs to win the second round to keep his job. if he goes I'd look at Tyronn Lue stepping up.
Budenholzer in Milwaukee will have won the #1 seed 3 times now (once with Atlanta, and I'm assuming a 2nd time with Milwaukee this year) but hasn't been able to get to the final. I wonder if the Bucks panic if they get beat out in the conference finals again?
I think D'Antoni needs to get at least to the conference final with Houston as well. he'll be rewarded if they win but he's a lame duck who wants more money than ownership wants to part with, so they'll look elsewhere if he doesn't win
Cleveland may stick with Bickerstaff if all goes okay for the rest of the year, but otherwise I'd think they'll look for a former player. Jason Kidd maybe?
Brett Brown won't last in Phila if they don't get past the second round either. no idea who would fit there. but it might be a different GM doing the hire.
Bulls, Knicks? who wants a temporary job where the only guarantee is you won't make it to your next contract?

3.) 24 Feb 2020 01:22:10
The thing with Rivers and Budenhowzer is who are you getting that is better?

Now if you are pulling a Nurse from Toronto, that's one thing. But with the current available coaches, I would run it again.

4.) 24 Feb 2020 17:54:50
I've said the same thing in Portland for 5 years Fredman. Stotts might not be the best coach in the world, but he's a good coach. Finding an upgrade isn't always easy.

Especially with Rivers, I think making a change just to make a change is very short sighted. The only ways I'd move on from him or Budenhowzer is if my star player (s) specifically asked me to.

Phili and Houston making moves makes sense though. They're impatient franchises that are starting to look like they don't have enough to win it all. A coaching move seems like the easiest change.

5.) 25 Feb 2020 00:48:23
It's an interesting question, because sometimes the move you don't make is the one you should have.
Do the Raptors win if they kept Casey (and probably watched Nurse go elsewhere)
I loved Casey as coach and he did win Coach of the Year. but I think the younger voice and willingness to defer to his stars that Nurse brought made a difference.
I don't know if Masai knew what he had or just got lucky.

6.) 25 Feb 2020 18:30:15
Probably 50/ 50 Wind. Masai hoped he had what he had, but realistically, he couldn't have known.

Coaching moves are really hard, that's very clear. A lot depends on who you're getting. Toronto had someone else, so they moved on. If Houston or Phili fires their coach, are they just firing and then searching? If so, you're going into the unknown with little plans outside of "we need a change". Look at the Knicks and the Cleveland Browns as teams that do that all the time. They make changes just to make a change.

7.) 29 Feb 2020 14:08:57
Windrap have your moment. Toronto will never win another title.



04 Feb 2020 18:15:53
Another brilliant move by Dolan... fire the President 2 days before the trade deadline...
not saying he shouldn't change the exec... they're brutal... but the timing is incredibly bad... and certainly won't inspire confidence in his decision-making among any candidates to replace Mills
speculation about Ujiri is just that... the Raps won't release him, won't trade him, and NYK is probably the last job in the world he'd want anyway...
Can someone please tape him making ignorant comments about some group that would give the commissioner a chance to make him sell the franchise? New York deserves better


1.) 05 Feb 2020 01:06:08
Stop going to games. That is what it will take. If fans stop going to games or watching games in the #1 market, Commishioner will have no alternative than to remove the owner.

Turner's contract has 3 years, so no, the Raptors won't take him.
Isaac is injured, so no, Raptors won't take him
Aldridge's contract is 24M so you would have to add Johnson and Davis (or Thomas) to match salaries, which would put Raptors over the tax line trying to fill out the roster, so no
Jonas' contract is for 2 years, so no, Raptors won't take him

Anything the Raptors do this year has 2 goals - stay under tax line and keep max contract available for next year.

Bogi has already signed an offer sheet, so the only team they could S&T with is Atlanta. if they match the offer they can't trade the player without his permission for 1 year.

John Wall's value today and his value at the trade deadline might be very different. no point in even speculating that far out. some of the players you're trading won't even be on those rosters a week from now.

no way raptors take lou williamson. he won 6th man here and raptors didn't even offer him a contract because they didn't want him. he's done nothing but trash talk the raptors since.
