Toronto_raptors_vs_4a05
The Toronto Raptors are pushing for a trade that would ship out Andrea Bargnani. However, just like last year, they are having a hard time finding a team willing to take on his two-year $22.2 million contract for what he provides. With just a few days remaining, one can imagine the Raptors will continue to push for a trade that can get them some value in return. The likelihood of that is low, reports Doug Smith of the Toronto Sun, who says that he believes Bargnani will be traded in the off-season.Word from the executives I talked to over the weekend here and by electronic methods, all suggested there’s not an awful lot of trade activity percolating right now, which we all know can change at the drop of a hat.The big one, of course, is Bargnani and one note I got this weekend simply said:“Looks like the summer.”Now, I know Bryan pretty well and I would say he’ll do something small this week, it’s like second nature to him, to make a deadline-week deal just to be in the fray.But, at this minute, there’s nothing serious going on for anyone...At the end of this season, Bargnani will be an expiring and his worth will increase despite his contract. For now, the Raptors likely won't get as much in return as they would like and because of that, he stays in Toronto.For the season Bargnani has played in only 25 games. In those game, he's averaging 14.3 points on 40.9% shooting from the field and 29.7% from three, all of which are career-lows. He is also grabbing a career-low 3.9 rebounds per game.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
