    I think Jrue on Raps would be the best SG in playoffs on Eastern Conference side.
    that's a grass is always greener sort of thing to me. i'm not sure he's been better than vanvleet this year.

    jrue would cost OG and ibaka and i don't think that makes us better.

    i like jrue but i'm getting conley vibes from him (who's comparable to him in more ways than one). he's taken a big step back this year. is that step back permanent or just an anomaly?

    honestly none of the names out there excite me considering what we'd have to give.

    I doubt Pels are moving Jrue. Maybe if Zion was out for the season, but with him back (even with limited minutes), they'll hold on to Jrue

    Nah. Just my guess, but I don't think Hayward would be particularly missed by his teammates. Might actually galvanize the team by freeing up shots for Brown and Tatum to put up big numbers. Capela won't need touches. That could potentially be a great trade for the Celtics.
    maybe you're right. i'm sure the wing players would be fine with it, but their coach would resent it. also their reputation would take another hit.

    The Raptors have three players on big expiring contracts, though all three -- Serge Ibaka, Marc Gasol, and Fred VanVleet -- are key rotation pieces. Norman Powell's $11.6 million player option for 2021-22 might muck up Toronto's books for the critical summer of 2021, but he was playing the best ball of his career until injuring his finger over the weekend.

    Holiday would be a dynamite fit. It's hard to see how the Raptors get him without dealing OG Anunoby, and though Masai Ujiri has pushed chips in on previous deadlines -- 2017 and last season -- he has never included a young player on Anunoby's level.

    Still, what an incredible story these Raptors are: 11 straight wins, on pace to exceed last season's win total. Four months ago, rivals wondered how far Toronto would have to fall -- No. 5 in the East? No. 6? -- for Ujiri to contemplate a selloff. Now those rivals are fretting about a potential win-now move involving one of those above players and a future first-round pick. (Toronto owns all its firsts.)

    Logic dictates the Raptors would prefer to trade this season's pick; they know it will land toward the end of the first round. They required zero draft picks of any kind to find VanVleet, Chris Boucher, and Terence Davis; you think they are afraid to give up the 25th pick if it means making an honest run at a second straight Finals?

    Of course, suitors would prefer a pick down the line with more upside.

    i hope they trade hayward for capela. gordo is brad stevens' favorite son and ainge coldly trading him after battling back from his gruesome injury has serious potential for internal strife, which would be fun.

    make it happen danny.

    I not 100% familiar with Bostons cap but i think they would have to give up Hayward or Smart in any trade. Smart is very valuable for Boston and i dont know who would be the 3rd team to get hayward cause i dont think Rockets would want him

    Woj reporting that Boston are interested in trading for Capela. If they are successful in acquiring him, they can be a legitimate force in the post season.
    mmm Boston lacks a legitimate C. With Kanter and Robert Williams injured they only have Theis 6-8 and Grant Williams 6-6 as their bigs. 7-6" Tacko Falls isn't ready for prime time, fans love him though!

    This whole situation has really soured my opinion of Iguodala. He's basically turned up his nose on playing for a decent young team, and is getting paid while not fulfilling any part of his contract. He was even on TV recently talking about how happy he's been to take a year off of playing, and how it will extend his career a bit longer
    Yeah sounds he's playing the prima-donna card. Doesn't fit this team's culture imo. From the 15th man to our more accoladed vets (Gasol and Lowry) all the players on this team are no-fuss, team-first guys and (unless injured), are all there professionally every night leaving their hearts on the floor, supporting each other.

    What makes it even more strange is we're not talking about 26yr-old Anthony Davis here (whom at least stuck out on bad team for years before asking out and is a superstar). We're talking about 36 yr old Igoudala pouting and not honouring his contract after leaving a championship team. Might backfire on him though: if somehow he doesn't play this year, how many teams you think will be lining up for 37yr old Igoudala that by then won't have played ball in a year? If I'm a GM I stay the heck away from all that.

    What would you give up for Iggy though. Because unless there is a third team involved it would be very hard to make the salaries match. I really don't think he's worth giving up Ibaka or Powell for him. He's making 17mil a season
    Ya we can't make it work without Powell or Ibaka which is an overpay. If he hits buy out no way he chooses anyone but L.A, So here's hoping Den or Dal can make a deal for him

    Bobby and MU it’s time for you to do some magic and get Devin Booker here.

    imagine pascal, Devin and giannis that’s a championship. Keep gasol or serge or even better both.
    With those 3 guys you have 75 shots leaving 10 to 15 for the other guys...seems like a little too "shot heavy" trio...
