Grange believes the Raptors will go after Nash this summer

Colangelo and the Raptors have done a good job losing with dignity this season and the club is well-positioned for a top-five pick in the deep June draft, which -- if all goes well -- will leave them well-stocked with gifted young players, but short of veterans to leverage them.

It's not something the Raptors could ever talk about, but those that know Colangelo suggest it's just the kind of move he'd push hard for if he had the chance.

The Raptors will have enough cap room in the summer to pay Nash more on a short-term (two or three years) than any contender would be able spend and more than the Suns would likely be willing to pay as they stare hard at rebuilding.

It can't happen until July 1st, which is a long way from Thursday's trade deadline, but perhaps Anthony's pouting and James Dolan's determination to support his star over his coach puts one more brick in the bridge that could bring Nash to Toronto.
