ESPN NBA insider Brian Windhorst spoke about the Raptors’ odds of landing Kawhi during an interview on SportsNet today:
“The Raptors are definitely a team a lot of executives out there feel are fertile to make a trade,” Windhorst said. “They have a horde of young, good prospects on their rookie contracts, which is what you want if you’re a team starting a rebuild. Second, they might see a window here in the East.”
“The third reason is because, if the 76ers . and Celtics are not going to give away their prized young prospects. For example, if Jaylen Brown is not on the table, if Markelle Fultz is not on the table, if Ben Simmons is not on the table, the Raptors have less of a burden to overcome.”
“I definitely think if the Spurs decide to trade Kawhi, and that’s an important thing, I don’t think they’re there yet…but if they do get there, they’re absolutely going to talk to the Raptors.”
The Raptors are reportedly very open to making some big moves this offseason. The team’s GM has said that everyone on the roster is available.
