Default BC not doing anything before trade deadline?

The trade deadline is in 8 days nad we haven't heard a single raptor trade rumor in the last month. I didn't expect BC to make a big splash but I expected him to make some moves, I don't think we should wait till the off season to make a move cause the other gms will know where desperate to get rid of our tpe before it expires.

We haven't heard any rumors cause all the possibilities have already been mentioned.

the quieter the trade chatter, the more likely a move is made.

You should change the name of the thread to start with an "I think..." or something to as not make people think that it's something that BC said or something.

First of all, BC usually keeps things pretty close to his vest, do you don't hear of trades all too often before they happen

Secondly, the all-star weekend is coming up and that's when all the GMs out there get together and chat about things.

last minute swoop in to steal Melo like the Hedo situation... only BC doesn't want Ujiri to leak it because he'd get too excited about bringing Alabi on board.

exactly, bc is as cagy as they come. think back to most of his deal, often things were kept quiet until just prior to the deal being made.

The last, semi-major deal (with N.O) came out of nowhere and was first broken on a Greek website. I wouldn't expect much, rumor-wise.

expirings, tpe, jose, bargnani, bayless, barbosa....to automatically think nobody would be interested in some of our players is naive. fans always over exaggerate how good or how bad their players are. derozan and davis are currently not our best players, yet they're the only players that aren't d leaguers? whatever.

If you can get what you need, the sooner the better if half the league (exagerration) is holding a TPE.

I am sure there will be deals, but with the new CBA and not so great draft class, I wouldn't be surprised If a lot of GM are waiting for clarity. Ie. wanting to know exactly what pick there trading their assets away for.

I actually dont see a lot of teams , proposing trade deals here and there, that doesnt involve Carmelo. Its not just TO. Memphis wants to get rid of Mayo for someone more productive so they can make a playoff run, yet i doubt BC is gonna call them for that. Philly is not gettin rid of Iggy since they have a shot in the playoffs. Who exactly do u have in mind that BC should get?

It would be nice if we could get involved as a third team in a deal.

I'm sure there are trade possibilities out there for him to decide on. As many said already, BC has been tight with the info he has and hasn't gotten them leaked.

You rarely hear about BC trades beforehand. And he got burnt with trade announcements this summer so hes going to be extra careful.

I'm sure he'll do something, bu nothing major - not much room under lux tax left.

btw how big was Pejas buyout?

I think bc should definately go after mayo, even if he doesn't theres still a lot he could do, maybe draft picks, but i don't think he should wait till the offseason to make all his moves.

Is G-Force better for this team than an Iggy would be? I don't think either are being moved though.... but SF is a huge need for this team.

Question for the Raps going forward, is DD big enough to play SF consistently?
