    I'm sure plenty of big men in the league are clamoring to get into Toronto. Who wouldn't want to mindlessly run up and down the floor, set screens, and barely touch the ball if you can't shoot it from 20 feet out?
    Lol. But what about the unlimited offensive rebounding opportunities....

    Sean Deveney reported this yesterday and said Gibson is on the block:

    Gibson’s name has been connected to much of the league over the last few months, from Los Angeles to Toronto to Phoenix to Detroit to Portland.

    In recent weeks, he has not played with the type of energy for which he has been known, and there has been speculation that he is frustrated with the addition of Nikola Mirotic and Pau Gasol (though his playing time has not changed much). Gibson still has two years and $17.4 million on his deal, which is a problem in moving him.
    He's signed through 2016-17, though, so he would eat into our capspace for the 2016 Free Agency Bonanza.

    Taj Gibson. No brainer. Don't think he's going anywhere though.

    I'd prefer to stand pat. Faried isn't an answer for the team's problems, Gibson likely isn't available and West will be too expensive.

    The Raptors are one of several teams sniffing around for a roster upgrade, specifically at the power forward spot. A few names continue to surface around league sources when talking about Toronto, the biggest being Indiana’s David West, the next is Chicago’s Taj Gibson, then Denver’s Kenneth Faried and then there is a long list of B and C tier names that Toronto might consider at the deadline if all else fails.
