Colangelo waiting for Jose-Martin swap?? Boston more likely landing spot for Martin??
The Toronto Raptors for one, believed to be positioning themselves to be deadline sellers, have righted the ship and have become deadline buyers.
We have learned that Bryan Colangelo is, and will be active up to the deadline trying to improve our Raptors squad.
Other deadline rumblings we have heard from other NBA teams include Amare to be trade from the Suns, Tyrus Thomas to be traded from the Bulls, Marcus Camby on the market with Portland aggressively pursuing, T-Mac to the Knicks for Hill, Jeffries and Harrington or Hughes. Roger Mason on the market and more.
Where there is smoke there is usually fire and there is reason to believe that Bryan Colangelo is holding out for the Sacramento Kings Kevin Martin.
However, the Boston Celtics have surfaced as a more likely trading partner, especially if the Maloof brothers are looking for salary cap relief. If they are looking for talent and fit, one has to believe the Raptors potential offer trumps the Celtics offer.
Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated tweets in response to Raptors Digest question: Boston. But how good would K-Mart look as a Rap. RT @raptorcity Is Toronto or Boston more likely for K-Martin if he is traded?
However Raptors nation doesn’t completely agree, in a recent poll run by Raptors Digest, while roughly half of Raptor fans do favour a Calderon for Martin swap, the other half would rather keep Calderon or find someone better to trade for.
Whether or not BC should pull the trigger on such a deal remains a hot topic, but the general consensus still remains that the Raptors, should and will likely make a move before Thursday’s trade deadline.
What do you think Raptor fans?? Is this a deal the Raptors should make now that Jose has been relegated to a $8.5 million dollar backup?? If not for Martin, who else should BC be aiming for?? We want to hear your thoughts!!
