The Rumor: Anyone on Toronto's roster except Jonas Valanciunas is available for trade.
Buy or Sell: Buy
History tends to repeat itself, and for Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri, that means dealing away overpriced talent for future assets.
While this probably won't be an aggressive rebuild along the lines of what the Philadelphia 76ers or Phoenix Suns have done, it's easy to see the Raptors moving Rudy Gay while he can still bring back something in return. Remember, Gay has a player option on his contract next season, and we've seen plenty of players in their primes decline those in order to pull down long-term deals.
It's hard to imagine Ujiri making commitments to Kyle Lowry (expiring) or Amir Johnson (expiring next year) without having any real stars to build around other than Jonas Valanciunas, who we still can't be sure about because he gets the ball so infrequently.
It would make sense that the Raptors would deem Valanciunas untouchable, as productive big men on rookie deals don't grow on trees. What might be more interesting, though, is the role Terrence Ross will play in all of this.
If Ross shows improvements in his sophomore campaign, perhaps that will push DeMar DeRozan and/or Gay out of the way so Ross can earn more playing time.
Regardless, I'm buying everyone not named Jonas being available for trade. Ujiri is a mover and a shaker, and even the most optimistic evaluation of this current group wouldn't dare put them anywhere near title contention. It's time to sell.
