Default Not much wiggle room for Raptors

As per Grange's write-up today, we likely won't see much activity on the Raptor front come trade deadline time. But as BC alluded too last week, he might try another deal kind of like his Jones for Dixon one from last season.

The Raptors have long needed a rugged, scoring small forward (Ron Artest? Corey Maggette?) and a ball-chasing, floor-running big man. But they haven't added either yet because they sense that it's simply not their time yet.
