2. Moses Brown, Dallas Mavericks
Brown might end up in Toronto as a result of a hypothetical Goran Dragic trade, as any move that sends the Slovenian to Dallas will force the new regime to part with some of their young assets to get a deal done. Giving up Brown would help the Raptors add an extremely tall, extremely promising youngster.
Brown might not get a ton of minutes behind Dwight Powell and Kristaps Porzingis in the Mavericks frontcourt, but considering that Brown averaged 8.6 points and 8.9 rebounds with Oklahoma City last year, there is a chance that Toronto could be the perfect spot for him to thrive.
Moses Brown would add height to a small Toronto Raptors team.
Brown, like Hayes, isn’t a very complete offensive player, and while his defense isn’t as spectacular, you can’t teach height, and his advanced rebounding skills and surprising mobility should be very attractive for a Toronto team lacking a player taller than 6-9.
Brown will need some polishing before he reaches his full potential, but he’s got enough to work with for Toronto to insist on bringing him to town in any sort of Dragic trade. If Khem Birch starts to take a step back for any reason, the addition of Brown could help keep Toronto solid in the paint.
