It's still early. More than a month and a half to go before the trade deadline (Feb. 20).

I think that teams will start making serious inquiries again around Valentines Day. Maybe a bit before.

I think the better question right now is do you trade him or keep him?

You trade him if you get enough value back. If not, then dont. I see no reason make him unavailable or on the other hand trade him for nothing.

If we dont get real value out of him this year, its not much different from letting him walk. The only difference is a bit better draft position (but not close enough to top to really matter) and on the other hand the if he stays and we make playoffs, the whole team gets Playoff experience and also value of the players in general raises.

But if you can get e.g. a first round draft to next years draft pick or a promising youngster with some years left in cheap contract without having to take on more salary next year from some ugly ass vet contract, then you trade him.

I wouldnt have done the NY deal (pick or Hardaway junior with Felton and MWP) as that pick was way in future, we already have Ross and Felton/MWP would just ruin chemistry while getting paid too much.

Some other deal I might take.

Lowry's averaging 19.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 10.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.4 three-pointers over his last five games, with the team going 4-1 during that span.

His strong play in December has his name being mentioned in the discussion for Player of the Month after putting up 18.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 8.1 assists.

Got to admit, this makes me hard.

One of the comments at the bottom of that article, have to agree....

Quote:
Anyone who seriously thinks Ujiri came to Toronto to tank this team IS NOT PAYING ATTENTION. When he took over the Nuggets, he created an environment where the team would continue to be competitive even as its young pieces learned how to play together. He jettisoned costly contracts and gave coaches the ability to play guys and see what stuck. The team ended up being incredibly competitive. Why anyone thought the situation would be different in Toronto has been drinking too much lottery Kool-Aid. Notwithstanding the unforeseen putrid play of Brooklyn and New York, the Raptors were always going to try and make the playoffs this season. The trades of Bargnani and Gay were more than just salary dumps - they were negative influences on the court who simply needed to go. That they also had huge contracts was a bonus. Ball movement, stiffer defence and belief in the players in the room were inevitable when the sulkers and the self-absorbed were removed from the equation. High volume, low efficiency shots from guys who didn't play their positions to the Raptors' needs have now yielded to a much more positive situation. This was always the plan. Only the media has been insisting the Raptors should tank. The club never saw it that way, and their approach is paying dividends. Wake up, y'all. This was ALWAYS the plan.
