    I think OG overtook him in that regard. Just needs reps to showcase it and buyin from coaches

    He's the best guy we have that can create off the dribble in the half court. So hopefully he goes back to normal. Otherwise it's going to be a really ugly season again.

    The bubble and last year situations were hard on the players... and we all react to it different ways. Let’s see how he plays in normal circumstances.

    Pascal will do better this year with the offence being spread around a bit more. Trent, and OG deserve more usage.
    Yes. And until I learn different I am holding onto the idea that a lot of Siakim's efficiency drop off had to do with the Tampa lock down. Siakim strikes me as an emotional player. If he was isolated from family and frustrated with his bout of COVID impacting his game and had no fans to cheer the team on and had to listen to boos raining down on home games, not to mention having difficulty dealing with the double teams resulting from no decent centers and other scorers either sick, injured or being held out of games, I would expect his game to tank. The fact that he starts barking at the coach could well be a function of all of those factors.

    I expect more than him doing better, I expect a big turnaround this season.

    Sacramento interested in Pascal?
    Yeah but the interest seems to be of the "please take Hield and Bagley" sort of interest, not the sort of interest that might interest the Raptors.

    I'd be happy to give Pascal a fresh start with us, and an actual center so the entire opposing team can't double and triple team all game long.
    between this and being home there are great things to come for Pascal.

    Even if you dislike Pascal, suggesting trading him there is just doing him dirty.

    What is the likelihood of Pascal still getting traded? I was pretty skeptical of the proposed Golden State trade initially, but given what seems like the current direction of the team, it could make sense to move on from Pascal.

    There's no fire I can see, but perhaps a decent amount of smoke. Initially I dismissed pundits suggesting the drafting of Barnes meant goodbye to Pascal, but that could qualify as smoke.

    Also, no Kawhi next year, Lakers look poorer defensively, suns will be about the same, obviously Jazz will be strong again, could be a good opportunity for Golden State to get back to a finals in 2022.

    It looks like we are not going to contend any time soon, so does trading Pascal for guys we can develop, like Wiseman, and 2021 draft picks whether to develop for ourselves or incubate / asset accumulate for future trades, make sense?
    Let's just say that I am uncomfortable with Masai making big moves without signing his long and big fat overdue contract first. If Masai signs long terms, I will trust his judgment more.

    Anytime I heard someone talk about the situation all they would say is pascal is completely in the wrong. Playoffs in the bubble and twice during this season.

    He is done here, everything probably will come out after he is traded. They are trying to preserve his value.

    I keep getting the sense that Pascal doesn't fit into the Raptors long term plans. You keep hearing rumblings about attitude problems, which coupled with the arguments with Nurse in the playoffs, leads me to believe there is really something going on. It's just my opinion obviously as I don't get to see the day to day interactions.

    I recall a story about how Masai challenged Kyle in the offseason to become a better player and he came back next season in the best shape we've ever seen to start the KLow era. Maybe the same thing happened with Siakam with different results. It's almost like he bought into his own hype after they won the championship. Again all speculation, but we will see very soon how he fits into the long term picture.
    I remember the game Bruno refused to go into a game. I was like this kid is done here. Pascal has talent so they been way more forgiving.

    Even if this is true, Masai won't trade Siakam for pennies. He will get a haul.
    He better.
