Atlantic Notes: Raptors, Knicks, Celtics

The Raptors have raced to an impressive start this season, prompting Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun to wonder if Toronto should pull the trigger on a significant deal to improve its chances of winning a title. Wolstat clearly relays that no deal is imminent. He points out that Paul Millsap would make for an “intriguing” addition, but also cautions such a deal with the Hawks would likely risk key parts of the Raptors future. Again, this is speculation, but the Raptors look like a team to watch as the trade deadline rumor mill starts to ramp up.

Here is more out of the Atlantic Division:

  • The Knicks will have a dilemma on their hands on whether or not to re-sign Derrick Rose, assuming he stays healthy, and will have to weigh how it impacts Kristaps Porzingis, Micah Adams of writes (Insider subscription needed). The Knicks have been better with Rose on the floor than him off it, but in losses he has often failed to get teammates involved, Adams writes in a deep-dive piece involving analytics.
  • Jaylen Brown, who was thought of as a possible trade candidate earlier this season, is learning to make the most out of opportunities as a rookie on a deep team like the Celtics, Taylor Snow of relays.

    If the raps can just beat the cavs. They’ll be golden. Prob won’t beat the Warriors but with A interesting trade. For an impact player to make a big 3 in T.O. I can see them going far again. If not then to the east finals should be done.

    They have a decent shot at making the finals as they are with guys like Siakam and Powell improving with a bit of experience (and Nogueira).But there’s a big gap versus the Cavs. LeBron is just so dominant.
