It may have come two years too late, but the Toronto Raptors have finally committed to overhauling their roster. They made three seismic trades this season, including moving on from longtime players Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby.

That doesn't mean the work is done. The Raptors should have their sights focused on building the next great team, rather than simply trying to win as much as possible next season. If that's the goal, then there will be more trades as Masai Ujiri reshapes the roster.

Which players should be on "trade watch" this summer? Let's look at four players who could be on the move once the season ends.

No. 4: Gary Trent Jr.

The player least likely to be on the roster again next season is probably Gary Trent Jr. The team has filled in behind him with multiple options at shooting guard in Gradey Dick and Ochai Agbaji, they have not offered enough money in an extension for Trent to re-up, and he will therefore hit unrestricted free agency this summer.

There is a strong chance he simply walks, signing with another team at perhaps the Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level Exception. Many teams, however, won't have access to that much to offer Trent but could use a 3-and-D wing in his prime.

That puts a sign-and-trade on the table as an option. The Raptors have been interested in getting back young players rather than simply maximizing their cap space, so they could be open to working out something for a team over the luxury tax line and taking back a player in exchange for draft compensation.
