Trent has a small $2.1 million cap hold which is very valuable to Toronto. They could spend all their cap space and then go over the cap to re-sign Trent to what he commands. They can generate around $22 million in cap space assuming they get a mid-to-late lottery pick, and they waive all non-guaranteed contracts except Chris Boucher. Newly acquired Hood is non-guaranteed for next season, so it’s possible that the Raptors buy him out now since they will likely cut him this offseason.

Spoelstra has accepted an invitation to join the USA Basketball coaching staff for its Olympic preparations in Las Vegas next month. The Miami Heat coach, who went head-to-head against Popovich and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals, will be involved coaching the U.S. select team — a group of players that will be brought in to practice and scrimmage against the Olympic roster.
“I really just want to be a part of the program,” Spoelstra said. “I’m always pushing myself to get better in the offseasons; I go visit people and all that stuff. This is going to be a basketball immersion. I mean, the dinners, the team meetings … for where I am right now in my career, I think this is the perfect thing for a summer of development.”
