The Raptors are still without a general manager, and as the season enters its final stages, the team could be without its star point guard for a significant amount of time.
While Toronto’s ownership group has not announced a specific timetable for their decision, a number of teams have been rumored to be interested in acquiring their first-round picks.
The biggest name rumored to have interest in acquiring the team’s assets would be Brooklyn’s Giannis Antetokounmpo.
While Antetopo has been linked to the team, the point guard has not yet made an official visit to Toronto.
While it is not yet known if the Bucks will be in the mix for Anteto, his lack of activity during the season might suggest that the Nets have the best shot at acquiring the 29-year-old point guard.
Antetotokounmpe will turn 30 years old this summer and has only averaged 18.5 points and 5.8 assists per game in the last two seasons.
His ability to score efficiently is something the Nets desperately need, and a team that struggles to score and defend on both ends of the floor is one that will benefit greatly from Antetompe’s potential.
If the Nets do not land Antetounmpos, then the team may have to turn to former Atlanta Hawks guard Justin Anderson, who has a history of working with Antetoboupo.
Anderson will not have a big role with the Raptors, but he can provide a spark off the bench and could help to solidify the defensive end of the court.
