That 2023 off season is going to be interesting with not only Trents player option but Freddy's as well. Some tough decisions are going to have to be made.

I dont know why, but I have a gut feeling Trent will be traded before his contract runs up. I think the Raps will try to sell him as a Main Young Piece in a trade for an All-Star player of some sort.

Just my guess though

ya Trent is trade fodder for sure. that's a good sized contract to be traded. he's young and he can shoot 3s with a developing offensive repertoire with average defense. I think Masai can sell that for sure.

If they plan on extending Fred, think you may be right.

Can anyone point me to the impact of absorbing Dwight Powell's 11M per for next two seasons on our salary cap? If we are near the cap (or already over it) in summer of 2022, then Dwight Powell's 11M for 2022/2023 doesn't hurt our ability to sign FA right?

its great for Trent, who probably influenced the contract length and terms.

Yeah but it kinda sucks for the team assuming he breaks out and you already gotta pay him again in 2 years


Which means our FO doesn't believe GTJ is part of the next core at the moment

either FO will trade GTJ sometime next two years (75%)
GTJ breaks out and become indispensable (25%) - then we have to pay him a lot to keep him longer than 2 years

The percentages are my estimate for likelihood of happening.

Reference:
https://www.spotrac.com/nba/toronto-raptors/cap/2022/

Powell won't affect on our ability to sign FA, as we are above the cap (not near, above). Our only way to sign big FA is to use our MLE (10m), which 10m is around what we left with (assume we are not going above the tax with Boucher).

Trading Dragic will need Powell + 3m (Burke or Green or whoever) + Brown or equivalent to match. The only impact of absorbing Powell + Burke would be not able to re-sign Boucher (though with only 20m below the tax based on Dragic expiring, that is unknown to be enough for Boucher).

From the calculated salary.
For keeping Dragic or acquire an expiring (no Boucher):
Assume we take on Banton (115m with 10 players) and sign our 2022 1st round pick, we are pretty much 18m below the tax with 5 roster spots to fill. Vet min or rookie min for 4 players (5m - 7m in total), we are left with around the MLE 10m as a below tax team.

For trading Dragic with 2+ years salary (14m) and acquire a young player (no Boucher):
Assume we take on Powell, Burke, Banton (129m with 12 players), the new young player and sign our 2022 1st round pick, we are to fill 1 roster spot. We have less than 10m and can use the MLE (pretty much the same replacing Burke with a vet min) as a below tax team.

For Boucher agreeing with a 20m or less contract and we get an expiring or keep Dragic:
Assume we take on Banton (135m with 11 players) and sign our 2022 1st round pick, we are 3m to fill 3 players, which means we are unlikely to use the MLE, but to fill our roster with vet min or rookie min for not going above the tax.
