The A-Train departs Toronto

In what is possibly a bigger blockbuster deal than the 7 player trade between the Boston Celtics and the Minnesota Timberwolves, Wayne Embry achieved the impossible by moving Aaron ‘A-Train’ Williams to New Orleans for two second-round draft picks.

Aaron was arguably the most disinterested player on the Raptors roster, waiting for his contract year to end so he could walk elsewhere. Toronto will receive Miami’s 2006 pick as well as New Orleans’ 2009 pick. Reports also indicate that the Raptors will receive a 3.375 million trade exception due to New Orleans being under the cap.

Fantastic trade.
