The time has come for the Toronto Raptors to make up their mind about whether they would be happy being one of the good teams in the Eastern Conference or they want to get the coveted place of being one of the finest teams in the NBA and be a challenger for its title. At least, that’s what the NBA Trade rumors say.
Bleacher Report’s Adam Fromal is convinced that the Toronto Raptors need to take that all important extra step but that would mean entering into a deal before the deadline of the trade comes to an end. What they need most is a great outside shooter who can help them in fulfilling their dream.
If the reported deal is through, then New Orlean’s Ryan Anderson may head towards the border’s north in exchange.
Toronto Raptors have to send off its players like Delon Wright and Pattrick Patterson and go for the Pelicans. That would definitely be an excellent move for the Raptors as they can get the finest shooting power forwards in the team.
New Orleans, on the other hand, may get some depth in their front court they need badly at the moment.
Fans of both the teams might be unwilling to accept such a proposal but if they take a close look at the figures, it would definitely indicate the necessity of such a deal.
According to Digital Journal, though Toronto Raptors have good records in the East, long-distance shooting might further improve the current statistics but including a player who can actually manage such shots is the need of the hour for the team to improve their performance further.
NBA Trade Rumors claim that both these teams are trying the best to make their foundations stronger than before and reportedly making a trade currently. If these rumors are true, the coming months will see both the franchisees to build up their team chemistry and some much-needed momentum.
