    NLP Podcast Episode 17: Should the Surging Toronto Raptors Scare the Cavs?

    in Basketball

    Since the start of the NBA season, the Eastern Conference has had one main unanswered question: Will anyone pose a threat to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on their road to the Finals? With the Toronto Raptors on an 11-game winning streak as of this writing, they seem to be a potential answer to that riddle.


    The No Look Pass podcast spent a week watching the Raptors in an attempt to better gauge that very thing. The hosts will also discuss potential All-Star snubs, and teams who may be one piece away from contention.

    Ep. 11: Raptors vs Cavaliers, Jonas Valancuinas Injury W/ Zarar Siddiqi

    in Sports

    It's a new episode of Coast 2 Coast! On this podcast I talked with Zarar Siddiqi. Siddiqi is a writer and podcaster at ESPN Truehoop Network's Toronto Raptors blog, www.RaptorsRepublic.com


    With The 9-6 Toronto Raptors defeating the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the Raptors return home to visit LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Raptors face a tough task filling the void at the center spot as Jonas Valancuinas fractured his hand in the game against the Lakers. He will be out for about six weeks. The Cavaliers also have their fair share of injuries as All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, Timofey Mozgov and Mo Williams remain out. Siddiqi and discuss what to expect as two of the Eastern Conference's goliaths face off for the first time this season.

    Toronto Raptors should trade for David Lee

    in Basketball

    The Toronto Raptors are flush with salary cap space. Yes, they need to re-sign Sixth Man award winner Lou Williams, and they'll likely need to give him a significant raise after what he gave them.


    But what about getting unrestricted free agents to come to Toronto? It has never been an easy thing to do (last summer's Kyle Lowry re-signing notwithstanding), and Masai Ujiri is going up against some awfully heavy hitters when it comes to going after the likes of LaMarcus Aldridge and his ilk. 


    If he strikes out on all of the big names, what might Plan B be?


    Here's my suggestion: Go get David Lee, who the Golden State Warriors are trying to trade. He is a former All-Star, he is the consummate professional, and he can score in the low block better than Amir Johnson, Chuck Hayes, Patrick Patterson, James Johnson or any of the other power forwards Toronto used last season.


    The Warriors have already told Lee they will attempt to move him, and Golden State knows it will not get equal value in return. What is important to the Warriors is ridding themselves of Lee's salary to keep themselves out of luxury tax territory. A future second-round pick might be all it takes to get it done, and adding Lee would give the Raptors a one-year rental on a solid player while keeping intact their cap space for the bonanza summer of 2016.


    I tossed that idea at Toronto radio listeners this morning on Sportsnet 590-The Fan, and I also explained the strange free agent status of Atlanta's Paul Millsap -- and how that could be an option, too.
