The Raptors Can Shock Everyone By Trading For Jimmy Butler


Word is, the Timberwolves are looking to move quickly in their Jimmy Butler deal.

Obviously, a number of teams are making their offers, in hopes of landing the prize.

Interestingly enough, a new team has joined the Butler sweepstakes, and might have the best chances of them all.

After the Kahwi Leonard deal, the Raptors weren't expected to make any more deals.

Though, with Butler becoming suddenly available, it might be a good idea for them to get serious about trading for him. As a solid two-way star, he'd be the perfect fit alongside Kawhi, and would probably increase his chances of staying.

It would likely mean giving up Serge Ibaka and a guy like Fred VanVleet, but that should be a price everyone in that front office is willing to pay.
