So it's a good time for Raptors to make some action here!!!
Trade Ed Davis for Derrick Williams. That would help both teams as Wolves will get a solid PF backup of Kevin Love, and Raptors get a shot to acquire the athletic SF who is capable of playing as a starter (and he's #2 Overall Pick). :cookie:

That will make this lineup:


Fields can be 2/3 guy and Amir can be 4/5 guy, in case of any injury.

So that would make a very flexible and well-balanced team right here.

I think Derrick Williams has not fully expressed his potential and has tons of room to grow, so I would rather have DerrickW as a starter and let the other guys to support
My guess is that they'd want much more for DWilliams than little eddy davis.
