Default The Post: Raptors start looking at draft options

Still a ton of speculation what BC is going to do with the 17th pick.

Ford, however, is not the only player that could be on the move.

The Raptors have several players with contracts that expire at the end of next season, and could likely offer an attractive package in an attempt to upgrade at the swingman position.

The contracts of Rasho Nesterovic (US$8.4-million), Anthony Parker (US$4.55-million), Jorge Garbajosa (US$4.35-million), Joey Graham (a shade less than US$2.5-million) and Maceo Baston (US$1.97-million) all come off the books next year. Toronto could very well look to trade some of those deals to acquire a more productive player with a lengthier contract.

Matters will pick up Wednesday and Thursday, however. Stanford's Robin Lopez and Ohio State's Kosta Koufos, a pair of 7-footers, are among those in Toronto on Wednesday. Memphis's Chris Douglas-Roberts and Kansas's Brandon Rush are in a group of six in town Thursday.

All could be potential choices at the 17th pick, if the Raptors are still there.
