Pascal Siakam couldn’t bring himself to watch the All-NBA teams get announced earlier this week. He knew the numbers he’d posted warranted that kind of attention, but what was the point in watching, he thought. To him, it was an event entirely out of his control.
It only took 15 years — an eternity in the NBA landscape — but Thaddeus Young (overwhelming positive) finally found his way to the Toronto Raptors via a perfect trade with the San Antonio Spurs that saw the much maligned Goran Dragic (gaping negative) finally shipped out to a Texas locale that wasn’t on his list of choices. This is isn’t about Masai Ujiri, but wow, shoutout to Masai forever.
Marquette's Justin Lewis appears to have piqued the interest of the Toronto Raptors. The 6-foot-7 forward posted an Instagram story in Toronto on Thursday evening, presumably hinting at a workout with the Raptors ahead of next month's NBA Draft. It's not hard to see why Toronto, who holds the 33rd pick in the draft, would be interested in Lewis who is ranked the 33rd prospect in the draft by Sports Illustrated's Jeremy Woo.
