ANALYSIS: Scotto added that, "Toronto has all its first-round picks looking ahead, which can be dangled as trade bait for a potential starting-caliber center. The Raptors have flirted with the idea of moving a first-round pick to re-acquire Poeltl, HoopsHype has learned."
Yesterday, NBA insider Marc Stein reported that the San Antonio Spurs want a first-round pick and a quality player in exchange for Poeltl, who has also drawn interest from the Chicago Bulls.
Scotto also reported that "Indiana is seeking two first-round picks or a promising young player and a first-round pick in exchange for Turner."
The Raptors have also shown interest in Hawks veteran forward Danilo Gallinari, per Scotto.
