    Boucher and Miller signed, now we can add 10-days (Ben basically a done deal?), still lots of work to be done.

    If people are still wondering the impetus for trading out Malechai and Moose:

    That might seem like a lot, but because they shed salary across their three trades and dropped a marginal tax bracket, this is actually still a much more favorable position to be in than before the deadline. Even if the Raptors filled their roster spots Monday, their total liability for the year would be an estimated $17.5 million cheaper than before the trades.

    Just realized Ben Mclemore is the guy Kawhi famously owned with consecutive steals.

    Wonder how Ben feels about suiting up to play with his father.

    We've brought on McLemore for a 10 day (I think that's solidified now, no?) as well as having signed Miller and Boucher.

    McLemore's a SG, Miller's a SF and Boucher's a PF who can play some small C. I think that leaves us with two more spots? (Or is it three?) Even it's down to two, it seems pretty clear that the next two additions should be a clear PG and a clear C , for some insurance, now that we've given up depth at both positions.

    Raptors have exceptions to be aggressive in the buyout market. I know they saved a bunch of money in tax selling off Richardson and Monroe, and its good thing for recruitment and speaks to your development in signing Boucher and Miller, but I hope the MLSE didn't cheap out, and Masai can make whatever moves he wants here.

    They haven't cheaped out at all in the last 3 - 4 years, allowing the Raptors to operate as a tax team with one of the highest payrolls in the league for the last two season (3rd to 5th highest payroll?). I think this story about them being cheap needs to die. They aren't throwing money in the toilet, but they clearly are willing to spend as required to put a money making team on the floor.

    The thing to note is that if they now add a tax-MLE signing it brings their tax bill roughly in line with where it was before the trade deadline. So they might be able to add talent within their budget this way.

    I'd go with Kieff and Lopez (or Gortat) for our last two spots.

    Just load the bench with veterans. Not a huge fan of Teodosic. We could use a PG but I think we could figure it out with McCaw/Norm and Loyd if Fred or Kyle get hurt.

    Besides Gasol is basically a point center anyway.

    Actually Cavs traded for him, then traded him out to Houston, who traded him to Indiana who then waived him.. so looks like the Cavs took him back.

    Is Loyd eligible for the playoffs as a 2-way or does he have to be signed to the main squad?

    Lol. That’s a Ridnour worthy whirlwind right there.

    Good for him for landing somewhere though

    That's absurd. The NBA should not permit that kind of stuff.

    Not bought out.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    Could definitely use another legit 7 footer. A bit of Marc Gasol foul trouble or injury away (knock on wood) from not being able to handle Embiid, Cusins, etc. at all.
