We all know the raptors aren’t exactly one or two pieces away from contending. But what do you feel is our biggest need. Given that we don’t have much flexibility we may only be able to make 1 move or a couple of minor moves.
So it raises the question if you were limited in how you can improve this roster through trades and or free agent signings which position would you target first? Pick one position to improve on that would make the most impact and or elevate this team to new heights.
For me, the selection was narrowed down to back up PG or back up C. I’m going to go with a quality back up veteran 5 because I feel it would benefit Jonas long term and ultimatley the franchise as well.
Reason being is with Jonas, Amir, Gray, & Acy our front court needs some help to say the least. I’m ok with Acy as our back up 4 for now because we do play a lot of small ball and Rudy can play some back up 4 as well. Also Acy has shown flashes of being a pretty good role player. I think that Jonas is well worth investing a mentor in to. It would;
a) Make our big man rotation deeper
b) Help the progression of Jonas, which could give this franchise a tremendous lift.
c) Give us a stop gap big man who could be relied on in the playoffs(if we make it) until Jonas rounds out his game and is a more polished player ready to take on a bigger role.
Which area do you feel the raps need to improve the most in?
