Raptors land Serge Ibaka from Magic for Terrence Ross

Raptors land Serge Ibaka from Magic for Terrence Ross

The report points out that while the Toronto Raptors have enough assets on paper to acquire any the fore mentioned power forwards, they have been reluctant to part with some of their more attractive assets like Terrence Ross and Bruno Caboclo. Toronto president Masai Ujiri has full intensions of signing Ibaka to a new deal following the season.

Love's absence will put further stress on Cleveland's depth and could force general manager David Griffin to make a major move before the February 23 trading deadline.

The Raptors are scheduled to face the Bulls in Chicago on Tuesday night and return to Toronto to play the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. Ibaka will now slide into the team's power forward spot and fill an enormous hole for the Raptors.

A new contract for Lowry, Patterson and Ibaka puts a ceiling on what the Raptors can be, but there are probably 25 teams that'd kill to be in their shoes. Love is averaging 20 points and 11.1 rebounds for the defending National Basketball Association champions, who are in Minnesota to play their second-to-last game before the All-Star break.

But Orlando created a logjam in the frontcourt with Ibaka, Gordon, Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo, and pieces just never fit together. He will also give Orlando a boost in floor spacing with his 3-point shooting.

Magic officials, disappointed with their disastrous season, came to the conclusion that they had to trade Ibaka before the February 23 National Basketball Association trade deadline rather than risk losing him for nothing in free agency in July. Ibaka's real age has always been a point of speculation in the league, something that is sometimes a concern for players born in developing nations going through civil war like DR Congo, according to multiple sources. On Tuesday, NBA analyst Chris Broussard was on The Herd w/Colin Cowherd on Fox Sports 1 and said it's certainly interesting to contemplate, although he wouldn't make that trade. The Raptors owned two first round picks, and the deal will send the lesser in value between theirs and the one they have from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Magic.
