The Toronto Raptors are now a rebuilding team.

The Raptors held on for much longer than many thought that they should, watching Serge Ibaka, Marc Gasol, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green all walk out of the door, then losing Kyle Lowry for close to nothing and Fred VanVleet for absolutely nothing.

This season they finally faced the music and embraced something akin to a rebuild, trading two-way veterans OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam. They didn't move them for massive draft hauls, however, instead largely prioritizing adding talent that could help them continue to win.

Yet they unquestionably got worse after the trades, and they weren't necessarily lighting up the league prior to the deals. Scottie Barnes became an All-Star this year, but now that he is out indefinitely with a fractured hand their season is largely over. And their focus thus must shift even more significantly to the offseason.

The Raptors could trade more veterans this summer

The Raptors appear to want to build a new core of players around Barnes, with Immanuel Quickley, RJ Barrett and Gradey Dick forming a new group to start from. There are other veterans on the roster, however, who could be on the move this summer for the right price.

What sort of trade could be out there for Toronto to consider this summer? Looking around the league, there are plenty of teams in win-now mode who would pay up for proven veterans. Let's look at one deal recently proposed that would see the Raptors work with their 2019 Finals foes.

What sort of trade could they make with the Golden State Warriors? And would it be worth considering?
