“You can’t worry about that,” head coach Dwane Casey said when asked about the concern that a trade of any kind could upset what is a solid chemistry within the Raptors locker room. “Masai has got to make the decision as far as what’s going to make the team better and for us to continue to grow as a team,” Casey said before hinting at his wishes for the Raptors on trade deadline day. “You don’t want to sell the farm to win a series this year,” he said. “We’ve still got to look at the big picture. That’s the thought process going into the trade (deadline).” Toronto Sun

The only problem with those scenarios — fanciful or not — is that Ujiri sees the 24-year-old as the kind of player his team needs, rather than one that should be moved along. “I would be shocked if we did something with Terrence,” Ujiri said Tuesday night. “Trust me. I can’t tell you more how I totally don’t think that would happen before Thursday.” SportsNet

“How many guys on our team can raise up and make a shot with someone in their face, like Terrence? They aren’t many in the league,” said Ujiri. “He’s had lapses on defence but that’s something you grow out of with experience. He is really a two-way player; he has ability to stay in front of guys, he can hit a shot; he’s athletic as hell and he can hit threes. Every team is looking for players like that. SportsNet

I expect the Toronto Raptors to make a hard push for a power forward who can score more easily than the Amir Johnson/Patrick Patterson combo, but it would surprise me if Masai Ujiri can pull something off. But also keep this in mind about Ujiri: He has been trying to get his hands on Nicolas Batum for ages, and he will give up just about anything to land the French forward. SheridanHoops
