Dwane Casey is not ready to commit to a starting small forward for the Toronto Raptors this season. The head coach says it will be “fit” that determines whether C.J. Miles or Norm Powell joins Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas in the starting lineup — including who might fit best with a second unit that will be among the youngest in the league. “I’ve talked to both C.J. and Norm. It could be either one,” Casey said. “Delon Wright may see some minutes at the three because he’s a versatile young man. Bruno (Caboclo) gives you a standstill shooter. So we’re going to look at a lot of different attributes for that position, and then who fits with the second unit.”
“For Toronto, they know that we’re on the Raptors, to come out after the season and show face, give them a show, give them something to look forward going into next year,” Powell said. “It was a lot of fun.” Raptors fans are thoroughly familiar with Powell, who emerged as an unlikely hero in each of the last two playoff runs. The 24-year-old is an explosive finisher at the basket, a physical defender, and has increasingly become a knockdown 3-point shooter. He’ll be in competition with Miles for the starting small forward spot.
League sources insist Toronto will not give away any more young assets such as Delon Wright, Jakob Poeltl, Lucas Nogueira, Pascal Siakam, Norm Powell or Fred VanVleet, but that doesn’t mean a package can’t be put together. They have the expiring contract of Jared Sullinger, another 2017 first-round draft pick and a glut of point guards they could put together.
