NBA Trade Scenarios: 10 Plausible Moves to Turn the Toronto Raptors Around

First of all, don’t be fooled by the title because I do not intend to give a list of actual trades that the raps should make to get these players, I am going to let you guys do the work.  Instead, I will list the top ten players I think they should go after, with a couple surprises at the end, and I will let you guys propose/discuss the trades they should go about in order to land these players.

Secondly, I am only listing players at the Small Forward position, save one little surprise at the end. 

I am considering players we have a chance to acquire/are available and who would be a good complement to our existing young nucleus of Andrea Bargnani, DeMar Derozan and Ed Davis.  Here are some more criteria I will consider,

1. Defensive ability: Both post and perimeter,

  

2. Rebounding ability:  Andrea Bargnani is a poor rebounder, I am aware of that, however, rather than continuously know him for that, event though he has been showing improvement, I propose that we find a Small Forward who can rebound and make up for Bargnani weakness in that area of his game.

  

- Younger Players: For younger players I am looking for potential, hustle, energy and willingness to work on their game.

 

- Veteran Players: I am looking for experienced veterans, with high energy who can be a leader and mentor for this young team.
