Sorry I was focused on players to make salaries work, which is the bigger challenge.
Raps would add picks.
Apologies for being snarky but this is still crazy wishful thinking. Raptors are picking bottom 5 every draft. There isn't an amount of 1sts that late that would get this done.
I’m curious to see the market for gobert. He’s got one year left and they want him out. He doesn’t shoot and has been exposed in playoffs.
2022 unprotected first (might be top 10 pick). And the salaries above that match. As the foundation of the trade, depending on raptors FO confidence in resigning more picks definitely could be on the table.
I could be wrong but I don’t see teams Lining up to give up top 10 picks or amazing assets for one year of gobert.
Are there clear reports that they want to dump him? I haven’t seen that. But regardless I believe there are teams that would want to trade for him and extend him even for the max. So you are trading for an defensive player of the year in his prime.
