The Toronto Raptors have already made one big move when they traded swingman Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings. They were in talks to make another when they talked to the New York Knicks about Kyle Lowry. However, that deal ultimately fell through.
Now, rather than continuing to trade some of their better, more well-known players, the Raptors may be looking to acquire one.
Zach Lowe of Grantland believes the Raptors could have interest in trading for Orlando Magic guard Arron Afflalo.
Afflalo is having the best season of his career, averaging 21.9, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game.
Lowe points out the Eastern Conference is completely up for grabs after the top two seeds (Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers). The Atlanta Hawks seemed to have a leg up on the rest of the East, but big man Al Horford is out for the season after tearing his pectoral.
Lowe says the Raptors could use second-year guard Terrence Ross, who the Magic “value” highly.
Ross, the eighth overall pick of the 2012 draft, is averaging 9.0 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
