Will the Toronto Raptors engage in a blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, which sees Julius Randal land in Toronto? As the February 18 trade deadline is approaching, rumors are ripe that the Raptors may trade DeMar DeRozan for Julius Randle.
DeRozan is set to become a free agent, and the Raptors eyeing trade for the guard is a loud rumor. DeRozan is a Los Angeles native, and the Lakers are interested in his trade.
Randle is a young athletic power forward, an automatic choice for Toronto Raptors. The kind of piece the Raptors are coveting for a long time.
The Lakers’ nation has already reported that Los Angeles is willing to offer the maximum contract for the Raptors guard, considered a star in the making.
ESPN’s NBA insider Bradford Doolittle explained why Raptors’ is an option for the Julius Randle trade. Randle suffered a broken nose during Lakers Sunday’s loss to the Houston Rockets after getting his first start since December 6.
