Raptors Rumors: Bargnani, Calderon, Casey

December 11 2012 at 8:22am CDT By Luke Adams

The Raptors fell to 4-18 on the season last night, losing by 18 points to the sub-.500 Trail Blazers. With multiple Raps leaving the game due to injury or ejection, the team mustered just 74 points, matching a season-low. Things are looking bleak in Toronto, and it's possible that changes are on the horizon. Here are a few of the latest rumblings:

  • The Raptors are "dangling" Andrea Bargnani as trade bait, but haven't attracted any takers so far, according to Sam Amick and Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.
  • Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun (Twitter link) hears that Bargnani isn't on the trade block, but that the Raptors would listen to offers for the former No. 1 pick.
  • Jose Calderon has "made it clear" he wouldn't mind a trade, and team president Bryan Colangelo continues to explore possibilities on that front, says Amick.
  • Multiple sources tell Amick that coach Dwane Casey's job isn't in jeopardy, and that a roster move is much more likely than a coaching change. According to Amick, a trade "of some significance" may be on the horizon for the club.

One thought on “Raptors Rumors: Bargnani, Calderon, Casey

  1. We gotta do something…. the roster only got better since last year and we’re playing at an embarrassing level.
    Gotta shake things up… might have to just give up on the playoffs for next year (already gave up on them this year) and just rebuild… its a real shame because Lowry will become expensive after his contract’s up, he’s a very good player
    Colangelo, Bargnani, Calderon will be the first three to go, obviously… they’ve all failed to deliver (although I don’t really blame Calderon that much)
