Team #7: Toronto Raptors
Portland Trades: CJ McCollum, 1 of Nassir Little/Anfernee Simons
Toronto Trades: Pascal Siakam
Why Portland does this: Perimeter defender that is younger and offers Portland a higher ceiling based on his potential.
Why Toronto does this: I don’t know why Masai would do this deal but if he wanted to free up the OG Anunoby and Chris Boucher front court and was high on Little or Simons then this would be an option. He probably would’ve picked one of those guys off in the Powell/Trent trade if that was the case but Masai is another guy that can’t be counted out in trade talk.
Ultimately with a 30 million dollar salary and not very many wing players available due to their high demand in the league it is tough to come up with many realistic deals.
If you have any other ideas leave them in the comments I would love to see them!
