Pacers are already starting Aaron Holiday in place of Warren, so why not Lowry, and move Aaron Holiday back to the bench
Raptors buy low on Warren and Lamb, and get a small prospect in Sumner
You'd need to start by swinging Warren somewhere for value to Toronto. Then have us give the pick. If no one would give up much for Warren we'd probably have to exchange Sumner for Aaron or Goga. Not that we would or should, but that's what it would likely take. Toronto doesn't care about Warren or Lamb in this scenario so we're not providing them really any value.
I wouldn't be sure that Toronto isn't into Warren. We need scoring badly and if Warren is the only salary the Raps take on for this summer (say Lamb goes to Philly for Mike Scott, Terrance Ferguson and the Knicks 2021 2nd rounder Philly owns), the Raps would still about 22M left and could keep Boucher and spend 15M on a starting center like Drummond (50 over 3 years with raises seems low but who knows what his market is or if he wants to stay in Cleveland) or a Zach Collins RFA offer, and run this out:
as a 9 man rotation, with the 2021 1st rounder and Paul Watson hopefully developing into cheap rotation guys too. Could close games with OG-Siakam-Warren-VanVleet and switch up the 5th based on matchups or who's hot, probably ideally Boucher, Davis or Watson.
