The Raptors have five ending contracts: Amir Johnson ($7 million), Landry Fields ($6.25 million), Chuck Hayes ($5.95 million), Lou Williams ($5.45 million) and Tyler Hansbrough ($3.32 million). It’s unlikely the Raptors look at anything involving Williams, but it seems that any combination of the others would get traction from Toronto’s side. The Raptors do own almost all of their future picks both in the first round and the second round, with their 2015 second going to Atlanta as the only traded pick at this point. The Raptors do have a couple of pick swap options, but for the most part they have draft picks to play with if so inclined. Basketball Insiders

“I was just trying to make it as difficult as possible, give him a different look, try to be a pest out there,” the 6-foot-7 Fields said following practice at Barclays Center on Thursday. Johnson didn’t give him much credit, saying Fields was “nothing more than a fresh body.” Johnson said the Nets watched film of what Toronto did to him and promised “we’ll clean it up for Game 3.” New York Post

I haven't seen anything about Landry Fields and his off-season activities. In my view, Landry is a key rotational piece if the team is going to step up however he has to be able to drop shots to be effective. Have you heard anything specific about whether Landry is just chilling or doing any targeted development? Ray, Huntsville Doug Smith: Yeah, have heard lots. He’s rehabbing his arm/elbow regenerates itself slowly, he’s working on restructuring his shot with members of the team’s coaching and training staff. Run of the mill summer stuff, same stuff he was doing at the end of last season. And I think we need to make this clear: Players “chill” for maybe a month and then everyone of them starts working on all aspects of their game and their conditioning. That’s across the board.

Ross could not crack the Raptors’ small lineup down the stretch, with DeMar DeRozan, Landry Fields and Alan Anderson each playing ahead of him. Valanciunas played a few fourth-quarter minutes with Amir Johnson in foul trouble, but came out in the final stretch. Kyle Lowry’s four final-minute points won the game for the Raptors. “I had to get Jonas out at the end, bless his heart,” Casey said. He said, ‘Coach, [Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson] is coming really fast.’ I said, ‘Guess what: All of them are coming fast.’ … Everything is so fast for rookies. I don’t care who you are, what level of rookie you are: It is a learning experience. National Post

Landry Fields of the Raptors is having a better time off the court than on it. After leaving the Knicks for the Raptors in the offseason, Fields is struggling north of the border – granted he’s been injured – he’s only shooting 11 percent on 3-pointers after making 39 percent as a rookie. On the plus side, he just got engaged to model Elaine Alden, and the Stanford grad was pretty creative about it. The Big Lead
