1. A trade

Fans have been clamoring for some sort of rebuilding trade for years now, as this team is simply not going to become a threat in the postseason with the group of talent they have at their disposal right now. A move seems more likely to happen than ever before after the team's poor run of form.

On top of the fact that Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby are both free agents at the end of this season, the Raptors have so many clear and obvious holes that can be easily fixed by a bigger move that gives the roster more balance and depth. Trading one to get potentially three impactful assets makes all the sense in the world.

Will the Toronto Raptors make a trade?

The much-improved Scottie Barnes is awesome, and every performance he puts forth this season only reinforces the notion that Toronto is going to be in good hands in the next few years. Why not fully commit to him by giving him even more freedom to dominate alongside a promising cast of characters?

Christmas might be a season of treasuring those close to you, but it's also a time to paint a rosy picture of the future and toast the better days to come. Such a future may not include players like Anunoby and Siakam in starring roles alongside Barnes.
