Toronto Raptors: Trade DeMar DeRozan?

As I’ve stated before, the Toronto Raptors are in a bad spot.  After a disappointing postseason performance, the Raptors need to decide what direction they want to go in.  In order to gain success in today’s NBA, teams have to bottom out in order to rise to the top, or else they get stuck in treadmill mode, much like the Bulls and Grizzlies have been stuck in as of recent....

Now That the Toronto Raptors’ Flaws Have Been Exposed, Prepare for the “Summer of Masai”

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this for the Toronto Raptors. When Masai Ujiri traded Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings in late 2013 for what, at the time, seemed like spare parts, it was meant to signal the beginning of a full-scale rebuilding of the franchise.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Going into the playoffs, the general perception was that the Toronto Raptors would be able to take on the Washington Wizards and if not win outright, at least keep the series close and take it to six or seven games.
