Michael Scotto: The Los Angeles Lakers have been doing their due diligence around the league, and expressed interest in Raptors guard Gary Trent Jr., according to league sources. One of several players they’ve checked in on. However, I don’t see a deal happening between those teams at this time since it would likely have to involve Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn from a salaries perspective.

Raps lead 48-46 vs Suns after a well-played first half. And I have say it, whatever cape/hoodie/blanket thing Gary Trent Jr. is wearing on the bench, I think he’s on to something. – 8:32 PM

Raptors have been using a center-less starting lineup, as Nick Nurse noted pregame, but with Gary Trent Jr. a late scratch, conventional center Khem Birch is starting at the 5 for Toronto. Listed at 6-9, 233 pounds – 6:05 PM
