via Toronto Star:
A source told Raptors beat writer Doug Smith that an Andrea Bargnani trade is unlikely to happen until the summer. Another way to word that is the Raptors haven’t got anything worth their time for Bargnani, but that was rather predictable since the entire league knows he’s available and the Raptors don’t have much leverage with him. It’s very possible the Raps roll with Bargnani through the remainder of the season and look to move him in the off-season when his stock might have improved around the league.
Per Toronto Star:
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 hi...

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...

T-Ross broke out a Vince Carter throwback in the final round with an off the side of the backboard reverse windmill that gave Kevin Garnett a reason to put on a stank face. Check it...
As if going to the old school score board wasn’t embarrassing enough for the Wizards on Tuesday night, their No. 1 fan, rapper Wale, didn’t have such a good night either. The D.C. native was sitting court side watching the Wizards take on the Toronto Raptors, when recently acquired forward Rudy Gay motioned to Wale “bro, call me, maybe?”. Whatever the exchange, it seemed...
Rapper Wale confronted Toronto Raptors TV announcer Matt Devlin during Tuesday’s Washington Wizards-Toronto Raptors in DC game after being mocked on the visiting team’s telecast. Wale is a Washington DC native and fan of the local sports teams. He was exchanging words with Rudy Gay as the Raptors forward went off for 12 points during the second quarter.

The Sprite Slam Dunk Contest hasn’t been the highlight event it’s supposed to be in years. The 2013 version had high hopes but things flamed out. The bright lights proved to be too big for James “Flight” White who came out with a dope concept but failed to deliver the money shot. Gerald Green was a bit lackluster after starting out strong.
The final “dunk off” between...

Desperate to unload Ben Gordon, the Charlotte Bobcats are offering the disgruntled shooting guard to the Toronto Raptors for Andrea Bargnani.
ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the Raptors don't appear to be interested in taking on Gordon with a bench full of younger, cheaper wings.
The Cats are "determined" to dump Gordon after the guard had several run ins...
The Raptors are unlikely to trade Andrea Bargnani for Ben Gordon given the presence of Terrence Ross and Alan Anderson at shooting guard.

HOUSTON When Terrence Ross was in college at Washington, his profile picture on Twitter was an illustration of himself dunking the moon.
Overkill, maybe, but you know what they say you're supposed to shoot for.
Ross, of the Toronto Raptors, did not need to dunk the moon in order to win the NBA Slam-Dunk Contest Saturday night at Toyota Center in Houston. He defeated Jeremy...
