Why Toronto Does This?

After moving on from Pacal Siakam in a previous trade, it would be obvious for Toronto to move on from their veteran guard in Fred VanVleet as well. He’s due for a contract extension so the Raptors should look to trade him away & not risk losing him for nothing in the offseason. A deal like this gives Toronto multiple positive things. Firstly, they get a size-able expiring contract in D’Angelo Russell in order to open up cap space in the offseason. Then second, the Raptors land two young players in Wendell Moore & Naz Reid. Both of whom can definitely be long term pieces around GTJ, OG, & Scottie. And lastly, an extra 2nd in the upcoming draft, which is projected to be very deep.

Lineups Will Be Shown In Part 3 Of This Three Trade Series
