Not sure about Trez...he is purely a rim runner and he seemed to thrive off of the attention Lou Will was able attract as a perimeter scoring threat. Without Lou as a wing man...he might be less effective

Not a credible source but I wouldn’t be opposed to this if we can get him on a reasonable deal.

He's been following the raptors for a while now, not a legit source.

What would the numbers be ? Why would the Clippers let him walk ? Who else could the Clippers get to replace him ?

Agent wants a higher pay for his client?
That happens every year with Raptors being thrown out.

Thats not happening. He will want more than MLE. He cant play in the playoffs because of his horrible defense.

I'd love Harrell on this team. That said, he's been a poor defender most of his career right? Perhaps we'd have a solution for that.

I think the biggest problem is that he's probably expecting to get paid a lot this summer. I'm against overpaying any Centers who aren't superstars (like Jokic, AD, etc), because it's shown that you can pick up a serviceable starting C in the bargain bin. I'd love him at the right price, but I don't think that's realistic.

Might not be a credible source, but Harrell himself is definitely a credible source and the fact that he’s started following the Raptors now definitely adds fuel to the fire.

Wade is basically Ben Gordon without the 3-point shooting. Sure, he's been a pretty good defender this year, so that would upgrade, but I'd rather have Gordon because he's cheaper and can hit those threes
