    Hey DanH new avatar! (The RR equivalent of noticing a hair cut)
    I've never used an avatar here before, but I have on other sites, and that's the one I've used. Finally got off my butt and fixed my settings after only... 9 years?

    I see Hammon as a guess as the coach. Did Masai even interview her? Didn't think he did.

    He didn't (or at least wasn't reported to), and she's not on the various reported short lists.

    If she gets hired, Magoon is Ujiri's burner account confirmed.

    Same.

    But mine was the boring super realistic prediction. You are still predicting we will trade into the draft and pick as high as 4?! I hope it happens but I doubt it.

    Memphis is rumored to be shopping the pick and yes, I went a little crazy the further I progressed through the list.

    1. The Raptors next coach will be .....

    2. The starting 5 going in to training camp will be comprised of no one from any tenforthewin trade scenario.

    3. The Raptors will make 3 trades this summer. 1 material trade 1 smaller sign and trade for a need (consistent 3 pt shooting) and a salary dump trade.

    4. The biggest name that joins the Raptors will be either Brandan Ingram or Andrew Wiggins via that 1 material trade. A second name that will be wearing the OVO colours is RFA Doug McDermott in a sign and trade from Dallas for Norm Powell and a future pick.

    5. FVV will sign for $ 7M per year on a 3 year deal and play for the Chicago Bulls if the player in my seat of the pants predicted material trade isn't Kyle Lowry.

    6. LeBron James signs where ever Mrs. Lebron James says she is OK with.

    7. The Raptors, currently with 0 picks in the draft, end up doing nothing major in a top heavy draft. Possibly they buy a 2nd rounder for a Euro stash if someone has caught their eye and they sign some guys passed over in the draft to partially guaranteed contracts for summer league.

    8. The top 3 picks in the NBA draft will be Ayton to Phoenix. Mo Bamba to the Kings (cuz they still are the Kings and why not go back to the future with Boogie 2.0 without the attitude.. How Kings is that !.....Doncic to the Hawks.

    8. The top 3 picks in the NBA draft will be .... Ayton, Bagley, Doncic (in order)

    Unfortunately, 2-1. Was hoping they would prove me wrong on #7 but they have way too big of a penchant for the low-risk-low-reward. Looking like they will stay pat in free agency as well...
