The Toronto Raptors are reportedly open to making trades as their season continues to head in the wrong direction, however, what they are hoping to get in return has been called “astronomical” by people around the NBA.
The Raptors have quickly fallen to the back of the NBA standings — and our latest NBA power rankings — over the last month. After a solid start to the season, various injuries to their top players have hampered them, and they enter a Friday matchup against the New York Knicks with the twelfth-best record in the Eastern Conference.
However, even when their best talent has been on the court together, the team has not played up to the level they expected heading into the season. It has put the Toronto Raptors in a difficult position. Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet, and OG Anunoby are all good players, but they don’t seem to be very good
It is no surprise then that the team has welcomed the idea of a trade. together. And there has been no better example than their 16-22 record this season.
