The Raptors mounted a fourth-quarter comeback from down 22 after Nurse went to a defence-heavy lineup featuring Pat McCaw and Stanley Johnson but Siakam wasn’t part of it. He remained on the bench for the entire quarter, even when Toronto pulled within six with six minutes left. The Raptors scored just 12 points from there and lost by 11. Siakam wasn’t happy and — according to multiple sources — let Nurse know about it, loudly and aggressively with words beyond standard cursing. It got personal, lines were crossed and teammates had to intervene, according to multiple sources.
When asked about Toronto as a landing spot, all four league sources pointed to the difficulty of the mechanics of a Drummond-Toronto trade. A two-team trade between Cleveland and Toronto is unlikely. Unless Toronto is willing to move Norman Powell in such a deal (which it shouldn’t be), it would require a five-for-one construction of Aron Baynes, Chris Boucher, Stanley Johnson, Patrick McCaw and DeAndre’ Bembry (Baynes, Boucher, Johnson, McCaw and a true minimum isn’t quite enough salary to meet trade requirements).
