It’s official: The Toronto Raptors have entered rebuild mode, or at least, they’re going to overhaul their roster.
Masai Ujiri and the New York Knicks agreed on a trade to send OG Anunoby to the Big Apple alongside Malachi Flynn and Precious Achiuwa in return for Immanuel Quickley, RJ Barrett, and a second-round pick.
Unsurprisingly, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that the team will now look for trade partners to move veteran PF/C Pascal Siakam (via NBA Central).
This is where Siakam is traded to a team like the Hawks and Dejounte Murray goes to the Lakers, right?!

A year to late on a rebuild. Couldve had real assets for them when teams were throwing the sink at them for them

With that in mind, the fans took to Twitter to speculate about his future and where he could end up.
Notably, Siakam has been tangled up in trade rumors for years now, and he was expected to be moved during last season’s trade deadline.
Teams like the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, and even Golden State Warriors were rumored to be potential destinations for him in the past, but a lot has transpired ever since.
One intriguing landing spot could be the Los Angeles Clippers, as Tyronn Lue’s team is in desperate need of size, and he’s already won an NBA championship alongside Kawhi Leonard.
Nonetheless, it seems like it would be almost impossible to match his salary without giving up one of their stars, and they might not even have the assets to pull it off.
Whatever the case, it shouldn’t take long before someone makes a big bid for the two-way big, as he could be the missing piece for multiple contenders.
