Default Hoopsworld: On the Move

Toronto Raptors:
Likely to be Moved: Antoine Wright
Winners of five straight contests, it appears the Raptors have righted the ship after the season got off to a rocky start. The Raps now have a firm grasp on the fifth seed in the East, and can even begin to entertain thoughts of a home-court advantage in the first round if they stay hot? Thus, although they were long suspected to be one of the most active teams in the entire league, Toronto may actually be quite this winter. Assuming they don't entertain offers for Bosh (see below), the Raps don't have many moveable pieces. Franchise cornerstone Andrea Bargnani, as well as Hedo Turkoglu and Jose Calderon are locked in due to their massive contracts. Reggie Evans and Marcus Banks' deals don't expire until 2011. GM Bryan Colangelo actually has very few expiring contracts to work with. Antoine Wright ($2.1 million expiring) could be moved, but he is currently playing his best basketball of the season with DeMar DeRozan sidelined. Amir Johnson is another Raptor with a contract that is about to become extinct ($3.6 million), but the coaching staff has been pleased with his energy, play, and production of late. Rasho Nesterovic ($2 million) is also set to come off the books.

Likely to be Mentioned: Chris Bosh
This story has been beat to death, but after months were spent exhausting trade machine scenarios and it appears that it was all for naught. It looks like Bosh is staying in Toronto at least through the remainder of this season.
