Raptors - Houston

Houston sends Tucker and Cousins to Toronto

Toronto sends Baynes, Davis, Thomas, 2021 1st, 2023 2nd to Houston

If Houston prefers they can substitute Watson for Davis or Thomas.

If Houston prefers they can have Flynn and a 2025 2nd instead of this year's 1st.

Van Vliet

This trade can't happen until March 1, but.... if the Raptors have solved their problems other than the 5, and if Boogie shows he can play regularly and effectively by then....

Toronto sends Baynes, Davis, Thomas and a 2021 1st to Houston for Cousins and Tucker


1.) 27 Jan 2021 14:32:35
That's a no from us.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 18:06:11
Not exactly sure where you expect to get better at the 5 if you are Toronto. McGee is the only prime candidate right now.

Maybe something will materialize at the trade deadline, but that may be a little too late in the season for this move.

3.) 27 Jan 2021 18:26:45
You're probably right, Fredman, but the Raps will want to move Baynes out if they can find a better option at the 5, and he can't be traded until feb 23. boogie can't go til march 1. lots could change by then. baynes could figure out the toronto defense and become a contributor, or the raps could fall out to the point of looking for longer term deals at the deadline. if cousins is 70% of his former self that's still better than most of the 5 options out there.

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.



16 Nov 2020 01:39:19

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.

A question for Fredman, or any one else who knows the answer... what are the rules around possibly trading a 2 way contract?... can you sign them to an nba deal and trade them right away? do you then have to follow s&t rules? or would you have to wait? I'm thinking of the Raptors Watanabe... he's on a 2 way. Can he be converted to a guaranteed contract and traded right away?


1.) 13 Feb 2021 04:02:28
Can he be converted and traded right away?

No. 3 month wait or on Dec 15th (in a normal season) whichever is latter.

You can trade a 2-way contract as a 2-way but the number of days that player has been in the NBA does not reset. Not sure how much trade value a player has with only 2 weeks of NBA time left on contract.

2.) 13 Feb 2021 13:32:50
Thanks Fred. Watanabe has been really pretty good and played solid defense so far but might make an interesting chip for a deal to improve. hoping he might be an acceptable alternative to any team looking at taking Flynn away as part of a deal.



27 Jan 2021 15:33:10
Just saw this on SB Nation.... which
(if any) of these trades for Lonzo Ball would you do?

Clippers - Beverly for Ball
Warriors - Oubre for Ball and Melli
Bulls - Ball and a pick for Markkanen
Raptors - Ball for Powell and Davis
Dallas - Ball for Powell and a pick

They don't specify what the picks will be, but the Pelicans shelves are well stocked if needed...


1.) 27 Jan 2021 18:13:11
not a big fan for acquiring Lonzo. Just hasn't really showed me anything over the last 4 years.

2.) 27 Jan 2021 18:31:27
I’ve seen a Hood and a second for Ball idea floated around. I like it for Portland. Lonzo could run the second unit and/ or play with either of the starting guards.

Seems like a light return for NO though. I guess if they like Hood.

3.) 27 Jan 2021 19:44:16
The Clippers should try that.

4.) 30 Jan 2021 15:54:24
From Pels POV

Clippers - Beverly for Ball Fifth
Warriors - Oubre for Ball and Melli best
Bulls - Ball and a pick for Markkanen 2nd
Raptors - Ball for Powell and Davis 3rd
Dallas - Ball for Powell and a pick fourth.

Fallout from the Harden deal:

Can he and Irving co-exist? I wouldn't be surprised to see Irving dealt at the deadline

Drummond and Allen? Love and Prince? Cleveland will be busy trading away salary

Will Tucker be moved? I was surprised they didn't find a way to put him into the deal... maybe they can do better trading him on his own

Will Lavert help or hurt the Pacers hot start?


1.) 13 Jan 2021 21:09:54
1. They can find a way to figure that out. But if Irving stays a primadonna. Durant-Harden is good enough to compete, they should dump him for role guys. It would be funny if they send him to Washington for Westbrook lol

2. Drummond will be on his way out maybe to Charlotte or Boston. Love is hard to trade but Prince can give them some extra on trade deadline.

3. Tucker will be moved. I would love him on my Lakers but we don't have someone to trade. Maybe Minnesota, Boston, Phoenix makes sense.

4. Levert fits pretty well with the Pacers young core. Dipo declines (maybe due to injury) and Levert is clearly rising.

2.) 13 Jan 2021 21:18:44
Drummond was never going to be in Cleveland after this year. It was seemed like the plan was get Drummond for nothing and then try to cash in later. Prince can play 3 too and I don’t think making him earn minutes is a bad idea.

3.) 13 Jan 2021 22:21:45
Actually, I doubt Tucker is moved. I think Houston acquiring expiring contracts so that the team's salary is reduced starting next year. Gordon is actually the one I would expect to be shipped at the deadline.

4.) 13 Jan 2021 22:35:33
I am soo suprised.

5.) 13 Jan 2021 22:35:50
Wow i'm soo late.

6.) 13 Jan 2021 23:15:24
I think both Gordon and tucker get moved if rockets are bad by deadline.

7.) 14 Jan 2021 13:18:07
I’d guess Tucker is moved for an expiring deal and an asset. They won’t take long term money, but why cling to him if you don’t want to win?

8.) 14 Jan 2021 15:51:08
who is giving an asset and expiring for Tucker? Plus, Tucker can be the starting PF getting quality minutes for next years contract as a FA.

9.) 15 Jan 2021 16:07:50
Portland might right now. Tucker for Collins, Little, and a second. Something like that.

Blockbuster deal...
Toronto trades Trudeau for Trump
but we also want

oh, and throw in Obama too


1.) 07 Jan 2021 17:41:34
Medication adjustment recommended!

2.) 07 Jan 2021 17:59:38
And then waive him. . . and then imprison him.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 21:14:40
As long as you take C.V. with them, then deal.

4.) 08 Jan 2021 18:38:17
It's not like we don't have c.v., Fred. It's pretty bad here too. We're all on virtual school, and the workload isn't any better.

5.) 08 Jan 2021 20:03:18
I just want you to take our largest threat. no hard feelings.



19 Nov 2020 19:54:14
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.

Too many salaries coming to Toronto. the Raptors would need to waive 2 of those players or guys on the roster.
Substitute Tony Bradley for Scott (76ers would probably prefer to keep him) and take back either Thomas or Davis. Salaries work and Raptors would waive Ferguson.

There are no players in this trade worth a 1st.

Raptors don't want 4 players back for 1. only room on the roster for 2 if only sending Lowry. money still works if you take Shake Milton out and replace him with a 2023 2nd. then just waive Ferguson.

Doesn't seem very realistic to me that a team sitting in the first seed would trade 5 players and another team in playoff position would trade 7 players mid season.

If Lowry wants to leave Toronto this year I would think Philadelphia and the Clippers would probably be top of his list to go to, but I don't think the sixers need to be parting with all those assets to get him.
Vucevic is a very good 5, but it would be really difficult to put his salary together with FVV, Siakam and OG's extension and still have money left to fill out a competitive roster. It's not like Toronto is the first choice among players looking for minimum deals to chase a ring.
Basketball wise he's a dubious fit for the Raptors. better than what they have but far from ideal for the style Toronto plays, particularly defensively. But the salary crunch makes him pretty much not viable for the Raptors.
