The Toronto Raptors changed their coach and the players may be next.
How open for business?
According to Grange’s report, shooting guard DeMar DeRozan, point guard Kyle Lowry, power forward Serge Ibaka and center Jonas Valanciunas are all available. So basically, the Raptors are willing to trade the top four players on the roster.
This after replacing coach Dwane Casey with assistant Nick Nurse — this despite finishing with the best record in the Eastern Conference and the best record (59-23) in franchise history.
Still, it may be time to buckle up for the Raptors’ offseason.
“Another source told me he believed one of the Raptors’ ‘medium three’ – Lowry, DeRozan and Ibaka – won’t be back next season,” Grange wrote.
