Ranking Players Most Likely to Be Traded by Toronto Raptors This Season

We won't know for quite a while whether any of the following Raptors will be finding a new home during the 2013-14 season, but if things go south, they'll certainly be at the top of list of players likely to be traded at some point in time.  

Reigning NBA Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri is no stranger to making bold and momentous trades. He's the man who dealt Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks in 2011, acquiring a package of players and draft picks that kept the team in the Western Conference playoff picture, despite losing one of the biggest stars in the league. 

He's also responsible for sending the polarizing Andrea Bargnani to the Big Apple for a king's ransom that included sharpshooter Steve Novak and two first-round draft picks. 

As presently constructed, the Toronto Raptors are a middle-of-the-pack basketball team that's good enough to compete for one of the bottom three or four seeds in the Eastern Conference, but not good enough to make any real noise against the likes of the Miami Heat or Chicago Bulls.

There's going to be a honeymoon period where Ujiri allows his team to show their stuff on the court while he evaluates the roster, so he should have a better idea as to where things stand after the first month or so. 

Player contracts, statistics and market value were all taken into account while devising this list

Again, this is in no way, shape or form an indication that any of the following names are on the outs. Simply take this as a warning and pray that the upcoming season isn't so depressing that we bring this topic up again in the winter months.
