Raptors Want Young Player, First-Rounder For Bruce Brown
Per Marc Stein, the Toronto Raptors have named their price for veteran wing Bruce Brown, which is pretty reasonable. Teams are already lining up to talk shop on a potential trade.
The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks have the assets to trade for Brown, with both teams being on Brown’s list to land. Los Angeles almost scooped him up in free agency before the Indiana Pacers signed him to a two-year deal, and New York can get him as Brown believes he’ll be a perfect fit on their team.
It should be noted that Brown is making $22 million this season and has a $23 million player option for next season. Whoever gets him in a trade will most likely sign him to an extension.
The NBA’s trade deadline is February 8th, 2024.
