Official Toronto Raptors Offseason Thread 

Post#1 » by nabbs » Sat Sep 12, 2020 3:56 am

It’s going to be a while till we hear roster moves for the team, especially with the draft being in the middle of November.

Till then everyone can either share memories or discuss offseason transaction specifically for the Raptors.

Tough decisions to make. Fvv is key. As is the center situation. Trust in Masai!

High points, low points, but mostly high this season. Still, we deserved better. Lowry did anyway. But waddyagonnado?

See you next year!

Half our team will be different next season. Guys like RHJ, Gasol, Ibaka, FVV are likely gone. Then you have guys like Johnson, Mccaw, etc that can be easily traded.

I say we resign Ibaka and FVV if we can get a good deal for him.

Please don't pay Fred.

Whatever you do Masai, you let him walk.

Serge will be back on a one year deal. Don't really see anyone else paying him.

Marc is done.

Pray to god Fred doesn't get a similar contract as Brogdan......

I thank you for your services Fred but $20 million+ is way too much for someone that can get easily shut down but a bigger guard.

I'm still all in on Oladipo just to entertain 2020-2021 as a filler year before Giannis

Didn't Brogdon get 5/$85m? If so we should resign FVV if he accepts that. It's a fair deal for us and that's a contract that can be moved if we want.

Fred on Brogdon’s contract is perfectly ok. What on earth are you guys talking about?

We'll see. He definitely needs to add some sort of counter in the mid range and improve the finishing but i'll bet on him (no pun intended).

If it's Brogdon level money then we should match that easily. What's the alternative to his replacement? Kyle isn't going to be our starter for much longer

-Sign Masai
-Extend Nurse
-Sign Fred, 4/80m
-Sign OG, 4/70m
-Sign Ibaka and maybe Gasol to one year deals, or explore FA for bargain bin 1 year deals to round out the roster
-Explore trades for Powell, if you need to free up 2021 cap room
-Get Giannis in 2021

Masai might just re-sign Ibaka and Gasol to 1 yr deals, re-sign VanVleet if it's reasonable, and add a piece or two to the existing squad and run it back.

I think both are gone (Gasol, Ibaka).

I think TD and Thomas showed they are legit rotation guards.

Watson is definitely a rotation wing

Brissett at this stage is probably best suited as an energy 4.

TD/Thomas/Norm/Watson/Brissett/Hernandez

I don't think Dewan is ready at all right now and I think Norm is probably packaged in a deal in the offseason. We need more reliable pick and roll creation.

Isn’t free agency and draft happening around the same time?

Can’t wait for free agency. To see what path Masai and Bobby take.

You don’t see people paying Ibaka? lol

He’s going to be highly sought after. He’s gonna get a 3 year deal easy.

Yeah, really curious to see what he does at C and SG if VanVleet isn't re-signed.

Indiana board is open to the idea of Oladipo for FVV. Fred fits better with Brogdon than he does with Kyle, and Victor fits better here imo as a shot creator and possible 1a/b option (if he recovers...if he doesn't recover he's off the books). I'd love that option.

The other move imo is moving Norm for a 1st or a good prospect and opening up playing time for Davis and Thomas.

Finally we have an interesting choice at C. We can punt on the decision and sign Gasol and Serge for 1 year and then slowly work in Hernandez and Boucher...or we pick up someone on the free agent market like Aron Baynes. Or maybe we end up drafting a C with our 1st. Lots of possibilities there.

I just can’t see the Raps not resigning FVV. He’s the heir to Kyle, and he and Pascal came up together. As long as Fred doesn’t ask for like $40mm, it gets done
