NBA Trades: Would the Toronto Raptors agree to the deal?
Last but not least, we come to the Raptors, who would be the linchpin of the hypothetical trade. In the mock trade, they would receive Harris, two future first-round picks from the Sixers, and a second-round pick from the Bulls. In exchange, they’d give up Siakam.
Although two firsts might not beat some of the recent returns for traded NBA stars, that would still be good trade value for their best player. Not only that, they could use Harris’s massive $39 million expiring contract in another trade, allowing them to take back players on longer deals in exchange for more picks.
Ultimately, what they receive in this trade is a good return and they could flip Harris in the deal for more picks. Thus, they would probably say yes to the trade.
After months of back and forth, NBA star James Harden was finally traded to the Clippers. Let's take a look at the 5 winners and losers of the Harden deal.
With all three teams having reason to agree to the deal, this potential trade could happen. However, perhaps a smaller deal involving the Bulls and Sixers is more likely to occur.
