Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Toronto Raptors

Plenty of teams around the NBA will have more cap space than they know what to do with this offseason due to the impending leap from $70MM to an estimated $92MM. That’s not the case in Toronto though, where new contract extensions for Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross will help increase the team’s total guaranteed salary to nearly $70MM. All that guaranteed money will make it very difficult for the Raps to find a way to keep both of its marquee free agents — DeMar DeRozan figures to sign for the max, while Bismack Biyombo‘s strong finish to the season could land him a deal in the $15MM-per-year range. Toronto only has Biyombo’s Non-Bird rights, so if the Raptors intend to keep both players, they’ll have to get creative, a challenge GM Masai Ujiri will likely welcome.

What about a trade Valanciunas to the lakers for Randle pick 32, Nance and future pick. Raptors get their PF, free up cap and a good young player in Nance. Lakers get their Center and for cheap considering Biyombo is likely to earn more than the 14M Valanciunas is making.

Ingram
FA (Barnes or KD
Valanciunas
That starting 5 easily one of the best in the west could be a 5 seed at best
