Default Raptors looking to acquire a second pick or move up

Quote:

The idea of a lottery pick in this year's draft being available in trade talks is a surprising development, but several teams appear amenable to a deal.

"I thought getting a lottery pick via trade would be virtually impossible this year," one NBA GM said. "It's not. There are a lot of teams in the lottery right now that would prefer a proven player. A lot of owners have lost their patience with the rebuilding process."

The Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings, Charlotte Hornets, Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns are all open to offers for their lottery picks, according to sources.

The Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Portland Trail Blazers and Toronto Raptors are expected to be especially busy looking to move up or to acquire a second pick.

Why would the Bucks want to move up, unless they're dead set on Embiid.

they have the 1st pick of the 2nd round, maybe they want to move up from there? Same with Dallas, who have no 1st.

Too funny. Where are the guys that thought the Spurs would trade Kawhi for a top 5 pick in a heartbeat?

It would be awesome if we could move up in to the teens to get one of our Canadian boys. Wonder what would it take though.

I really hope it's acquiring a second pick, unless by moving up they mean into the top 7 or 8. There's a lot of parity from 11 down through 20, with most of the prospects I am intrigued by projected to be available at our pick.

It think its simply a matter of due diligence only to see if the can move up to 2 to see if they can grab Wiggins.

i have a feeling we might trade ross on draft day for a pick and something, just a gut feeling. I remember orlando really liked ross. and nobodies talking about dario saric he would fit nice on our team, plays like ersan illya and chandler parsons.

Really hard to figure out what Ross is going to be right now. They'd better seriously watch moving Ross and another asset for????

My only question is whether he is capable of breathing, eating, sleeping basketball to get better. i.e. Will he cheat himself?
