Raptors acquire Jakob Poeltl in trade with Spurs

The Toronto Raptors are acquiring Jakob Poeltl from the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Khem Birch, a protected 2024 first-round draft pick and two future second-round picks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

As the 2023 NBA trade deadline approached, all eyes were on the Raptors. Rival executives weren't sure whether Toronto would be a buyer or seller on Thursday.

After acquiring Poeltl, it seems that Toronto is approaching the deadline as a buyer. Perhaps this means that the Raptors will hold onto Pascal Siakam, O.G. Anunoby and Fred VanVleet through the deadline.

The Raptors selected Poeltl with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, and he spent two seasons in Toronto before being sent to San Antonio as part of the Kawhi Leonard trade in July of 2018.

This season, the 27-year-old is averaging 12.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.2 blocks and .8 steals, while shooting 62.3% from the field.

The Raptors are currently 26-30, which is the 10th-best record in the East. Toronto has the NBA's 12th-ranked offense (scoring 112.0 points per 100 possessions) and 20th-ranked defense (allowing 112.5 points per 100 possessions).
