All is fair in love and war. I don't think KD would sign off on Toronto (if he has a choice), just that the Raps could put together a good offer if they wanted to.

I have no interest in AD.

I think Toronto could put together a package of players for KD if they wanted and make a jump in the East.
Who would you offer? Would you trade Siakam? I wouldn’t if I’m Toronto. I think I’d say we’re keeping FVV/Barnes/Siakam…Pick 3 players and 3 picks from the rest of our roster.

So maybe OG/Trent/Boucher and 3 1sts…Does Brooklyn do that?
I don't think KD would ever suit up for the Raptors considering the city cheered him tearing his achilles.
Very unCanadian like. :) I guess all is fair in sports, war, and politics.

I swear I didn't see this first! Obviously because I missed love.

I think you start with OG as a main piece and then move up to Siakam if talks progress and BK pushes for it. The East is kind of open so maybe you get a 2 year window with FVV, Barnes, KD and their roleplayers.
Would you offer anything in addition to Siakam, or just a 1 for 1 swap. That’s the only way I’d consider Siakam and even then I might not do it. Siakam is having an MVP dark horse season so far and he’s significantly younger.
Siakam isn't leading the Raps to a title. Throw in a few roleplayers like Porter and Koloko and picks.
Maybe not, but I don’t think KD is either if they lose Siakam. I don’t think FVV/Barnes/Durant is enough.

I think he’d be a great pick up, that’s probably why he’ll go to the warriors.

If his attitude catches up with his talent he’d be a great get (from what they say)

Enjoyable article about the NBA starting to trend toward bigger, weirder lineups.

In the meantime, we signed two 6-3 guys to play 3rd string power forward.
Crowder Trade Targets: Kuzma or Avdija, J. Isaac, J. Holiday + Jalen Johnson, Quickley + Reddish, Clarkson and/or Vanderbilt, Barnes + Lyles or Metu or T. Davis, E. Gordon + KJ Martin, Patrick Williams, Oubre, McConnell + Brissett

We ain't no copy cats. We're trailblazers, man. They go big, we go small.

These guys are big basketball players, much like Ayton fancies himself, except they can actually do things on the perimeter or with the ball in their hands.

Must have talked the owner out of Udoka. Sounded like a done deal.
