Marc Stein is reporting that the Raptors are looking at all of their trade options ahead of the draft and are hoping to land a pick high enough to select Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
The Raptors are without a pick in the draft and seem to be toeing the line between the present and the future. Their two guards are the most valuable trade chips on the roster and it'd probably take moving a core piece to trade up into the lottery, where Gilgeous-Alexander is expected to be taken. Stein also added that nobody on the roster is off-limits as the Raptors try to lock down a selection in the top-10. It is worth noting, however, that Masai Ujiri is notorious for the lack of leaks about the team until he wants the news out there himself. While the Raptors definitely want to trade into the draft and are open to retooling their core, take this with a grain of salt.
