1. Tyler Herro
Herro has been linked to the Raptors in the past, as Masai Ujiri could be eyeing some instant offense. Herro and Lillard playing alongside one another could make for an awkward fit, but the Blazers may not like adding Herro due to the presence of Scoot Henderson, Anfernee Simons, and Shaedon Sharpe.
Herro could be better served with the Raptors. He is one of the worst defensive players in the league, but he can get white-hot in an instant and would instantly be the second-best scorer on this team. Due to his contract, the Raptors could have him locked in long-term.
Tyler Herro could dominate with the Toronto Raptors.
Herro could give the Raptors a proper starting ball-handler who can be a lethal on-ball scorer in half-court situations on a team that doesn’t have too many players like that. Within how young he is, Herro’s best basketball could be in the windshield rather than the rearview mirror.
Losing Herro is the only way that a trade can make sense from a stylistic and financial point of view. If Rajakovic can get any sort of defensive effort out of Herro, he could coast to yet another All-Star game appearance with his new team.
