Raptors Only Consider Scottie Barnes Untouchable On Trade Market
The Toronto Raptors are willing to make anyone on their roster available via trade this offseason outside of Scottie Barnes.
“Outside of Scottie Barnes, who is coming off a disappointing follow up to his Rookie of the Year campaign, everybody and everything is on the table as the off-season kicks into high gear ahead of the draft in late June and free agency at the beginning of July,” writes Josh Lewenberg.
This leaves Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby as high impact, possibly available players on the trade market. Fred VanVleet, Jakob Poeltl and Gary Trent Jr. will be free agents.
“I think changes are going to be made on all fronts,” Masai Ujiri said. “We’re going to address that with the team. We saw how different players on our team would rise, would do well, but we never did it collectively. Maybe that could be fit. Maybe that could be system, sometimes role orientation, sometimes accountability – all the things we are going to really look at it how our roster is built. We believe in the players we have. Whether it’s tweaks or major changes, we’re definitely going to look at everything.”
