Raptors Notes: Millsap, Patterson, Trades

The topic of whether or not the Raptors should trade for the Hawks’ Paul Millsap is currently a hot one because Millsap would help fill Toronto’s biggest weakness at power forward and rebounding. It is unclear whether the Raptors are willing to take on the gamble of acquiring Millsap, Ryan Wolstat of The Toronto Sun writes. While the move makes sense on paper, there is no guarantee that Millsap would put the Raptors over the top or that he would re-sign with Toronto next summer, Wolstat adds. What’s more, other teams may have more enticing offers for Atlanta, Wolstat points out. Rachel Nichols of ESPN.com (video link) argues that Millsap would fill a hole for the Raptors, flourish in the pick-and-roll and bolster the Raptors’ defense. On the other side, however, Nichols cautions that the Hawks would likely want a significant return for Millsap, who as Nichols adds, has indicated he will likely opt out of his contract. Still, the Raptors have too good of a team not to add its one missing link in the hopes of a finals appearance, Nichols surmises.

  2. Itd be great for Toronto if they can get him without giving up Derozan or Lowry. I think a package of Powell, Noguiera/Cabloco, Ross and some first rounders could get him (low chance but these are Toronto’s most traceable assets). The problem is if they can get him to resign but he’s known to be loyal so I bet he would. This could put the raptors at the top over the Cavs or probably equal.

      This is Millsap not Lebron. What kind of package are you offering Perry?

      Insanity for a rental.

      • I think that package is quite fair. Maybe take out Powell or Ross but Millsap is one of the best and unique players in this league. Defensively he can guard the perimeter and most post players. Offensively he can do everything as well. He is an extremely versatile star in this league and he’s worth a lot to Atalanta already

          While I agree with your assessment on Milsap, he also only has a couple of months left on his contract. I could see Powell, Cabocolo, 1st rounder but part of that is how low a value I put on cabocolo. I could see better offers from teams, and you’d likely have to expand it a little to match salary

            No way. Powell and his numbers as a starter is 15 points and his D is sharper than average. He is as close to untouchable as the big 2.

            He contained Harden tonight.

            Raptors are the best at getting the ball to the hot hand. Get rid of Joseph, Ross and Patterson. They do not recognize plays as well as the rest.

            Powell is going nowhere. And Bruno is garbage. He has shown zero progress to be involved in a trade.

            Only pieces that make sense financially. Is CJ, JV

      Wow, no way that is way too much for a few months of Millisap, who is a FA after the season and will command close to $30 million.
      We need to hold onto either Ross or Powell so we actually have a good bench….

  3. Casual raptor fan

    Why is it that the next move Masai makes has to get them over the top? Raptors are not even a threat to cavs yet. The next move would probably make them good enough to challenge the cavs and they would probably need another move to get them over the hump. The problem with trading for millsap is that he can opt out next offseason and if he were to resign, he will likely demand near max dollars with long terms at an advanced age. Lowry will also opt out this offseason and demand demar type money too. Can the raptors afford 3 max money guys? Only way that a trade for Millsap makes sense: 1) lose Carroll (14 million) , 2) get a guarantee from millsap that he would resign here, 3) give up picks instead of immediate talent ala Ross/Powell/poeltl. Essentially Patterson, Carroll, and picks for millsap. Hawks could get a lot more from other teams so this trade will likely not happen.

      Especially considering Carroll going back to the Hawks is a non starter.

        The trades that never were seem to be Masai’s guardian angel. He would have been sending Powell and Ross for Millsap and they have been big this year. Then the deal to send Lowry away that was killed.

        Some nice horse shoes he has lol
