Breaking: Toronto Raptors Confirm The Departure Of Another Top Experienced Star

**Report: Raptors Expected To Trade Bruce Brown This Offseason**

According to NBA insider Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Toronto Raptors are likely to trade Bruce Brown this offseason. The Raptors plan to exercise Brown’s $23 million team option and use him as a trade asset.

Brown joined the Raptors from the Indiana Pacers in a major trade involving Pascal Siakam. In his 34 games with Toronto, Brown averaged 9.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game. He was also part of the Denver Nuggets team that won the 2023 NBA championship against the Miami Heat.


A product of Miami, Brown completed this season with an average of 10.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 67 games between the Pacers and Raptors. He shot 47.8% from the field, 32.3% from three-point range, and 82.4% from the free-throw line.

During the 2024 NBA trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Utah Jazz, and Milwaukee Bucks were all interested in Brown. It remains to be seen where he will be traded this offseason.

A Boston native, Brown has career averages of 8.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks with the Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets, Nuggets, Pacers, and Raptors. He will turn 28 in August.

The Raptors are focusing on building around Scottie Barnes, RJ Barrett, and Immanuel Quickley. Barrett and Quickley were acquired from New York in the OG Anunoby trade. Additionally, the Raptors aim to extend All-Star forward Scottie Barnes this summer.

Toronto finished the season with a 25-57 record, ranking 21st in points per game, 25th in points allowed per game, and 25th in net rating. It may be some time before the Raptors return to the playoffs.
