Valanciunas is only 23, so there’s still hope that he will come back next year a better scorer inside. But the Raptors can’t count on that, so they’ll need to address their frontcourt scoring on the free-agent market, or by trade. Ross was mentioned as a trade candidate last winter, but Toronto was not interested in moving him. Perhaps that will change. Williams did a very good job with his role as a Raptor this season, and he has said he would like to return. That will depend, though, on what kind of offers Williams gets around the league.

Asked if he was on a short leash this second playoff run, Casey said Ross’ leash was only shortened once — and that was those 21 games he came off the bench. “No question he’s earning it with his defence,” Casey said. “I mean he was 0-for-6 from three in Game 1. He has done a good job. He has grown. Since he came back from not starting his attention to detail has been solid. If he makes a mistake, it’s an honest mistake. It’s not from falling asleep and just not being where he is supposed to be.”

Toronto has allowed 43.3 point in the paint per game this year, which is just 22nd in the league. But, according to sources, the Raptors won’t use Ross to make that happen, despite his third-season struggles—which actually date back to last year’s postseason. Casey considered benching Ross then, but did not pull the trigger on the move. Ross averaged just 5.0 points in Toronto’s seven-game, first-round loss to Brooklyn, shooting an abysmal 29.8 percent from the field and 16.7 percent from the 3-point line.

Raptors are not trading Terrence Ross

The benching of Ross has led to trade speculation, with Toronto eager to beef up its struggling interior defense and Ross an attractive young chip who can be paired with the first-round pick the Raptors will get from the Knicks (the lesser of the picks between New York and Denver) in 2016. But according to league sources, Ross is going nowhere. “Absolutely not,” one rival executive told Sporting News. “They still have a lot of belief in him and there is not much you could do to get him from them.”

You work a lot with the young guys. Who do you expect to have a breakout season this year? Bill Bayno: T-Ross and Jonas are still in that stage of their careers where they have a lot of room for improvement. I think they will continue to grow. I think both of those guys can be All-Stars. We drafted Bruno Caboclo, who I think has a tremendous future, but this year it will be hard for him to break in because we have our Top 10 coming back. We’re going to work hard to develop him. He’s a great kid, he’s got a bright future, really listens and learns, has a high basketball IQ. So he’s the one guy to watch but I don’t think it’s his time yet to have a breakout year with the way our roster’s shaped up.
