Default Raptors trade targets

Rumor has it that the following players are in discussions: Thaddeus Young, Ryan Anderson, Kenneth Faried, P.J. Tucker and Markieff Morris.

All of the above players brings a very different skillset, who is the best fit?
Who are we most likely to get?

The most likely is PJ Tucker and Ryan Anderson. Another 3&D player with only 2 years left. Ryan Anderson only has 1 year left and is a shooter/scorer. Both the best fits.

Young, Faried, and Morris all have longer deals and are not good fits next to JV. Just have no reason to take that Morris contract.

Best fit would be faried or morris. They need a capable rebounder and someone to help JV in the post. Every team we lose to is because they have bigger guys in the paint. Its happened over and over and over. Timberwolves perfect example. Washington, Chicago. Faried and Morris help out with that. Tucker and Anderson spend all their time on the outside and woukd really do very litle for this team

One contender who is not interested in Phoenix's Markieff Morris: The Toronto Raptors.

Scratch Markieff off the list. Wouldn't have made any sense, IMO.

Seems to be a headcase and probably want too much or tcombination of getting low balled. Whatever the case its done with.

PS horford would be my number one target. although bulls have offered Gibson for patterson. IMHO best deal. Dont have to really give up anything and get a guy who hustles plays d and rebounds.

So many people predicting an acquisition at the 4....

I will be a little counter intuitive.

There have been so many rumors about Nick ~ Nicholas Batum back in the Portland days - Charlotte ...

I thought that after the Tross signing it was done... no way. They wouldn't tie that money up in another 2 /3

But if Casey and Masai envision playing "small big ball" with James and Demare out in the 4 more often there is some room. And/or the Hornets are at least interested enough in the stability of Tross contract (size duration) given the cap is about to explode...

I dunno there have just been so many confirmed rumours (Batum is French - likes Canada - Batum likes Toronto - etc etc etc) that I think its a case of where there is smoke there is fire.

Two teams interested in seeing where Sean Marks stands on Thaddeus Young: Toronto and Boston. Likely more, Young an appealing player.

Seems like Thad Young has come out as the likely pick up. Don't know if they can outbid Bostons in a potential pick(s) war trade.

This is seven months ago...

Batum is an impending unrestricted free agent on a borderline playoff team, diving into an unprecedented cap frenzy in which two-dozen suitors could offer $20 million per season. Batumís people have already made noise about how much Batum would like to play in Toronto, a city that appeals to his international roots, per several league sources.

http://grantland.com/the-triangle/go...=story-twitter

Having said that and all of the above... there are so many rumors connecting Batum to Toronto since Portland I think one of three things go down.

1) Charlotte will be hard pressed to keep both Batum and Jefferson. Its not all that great of a nucleus vis a vis Washington, Miami, Toronto, Cavs, any western team

2) I thought that the monster Tross contract killed any Batum deal but now I am not so sure. James Johnson, T Ross, and some of the 905'ers may appeal to Michael Jordon. He absolutely blew off a Toronto deal a couple years ago...but I wouldnt bet against him trying to get something if he thinks he needs to...

3) If not this trade deadline (rental contract with hope to extend) watch Masai pursue in offseason.... its double insurance in case Demar's agents cant be reasoned with.

I don't see a move that would have made the team THAT much better. I'm sure the team is just waiting for Carroll to come back into the lineup at full strength and that will be their "pick up".

The long term goal at PF will probably come in the off season. Bruno might finally crack the rotation lineup next season, I doubt Batum will come here if the keeps the core players.
