Toronto Raptors Trading For Big Man?

Say one thing about Bryan Colangelo, he doesn’t rest on his laurels. Word around the NBA at this hour is that the Raptors are about to pull off a trade. Yes! Another trade! Word is that Carlos Delfino and Roko Ukic are headed to Milwaukee for a Big MAN in a two-for-two deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. Who is coming back the other way? Amir Johnson. This would be a sign a trade move as Delfino would first have to agree to a new contract that would last at least two years.

Johnson who is 22, was first drafted by the Detroit Pistons #56 in 2005. He was a one of the last high-schoolers to be drafted right into the NBA. This will be the last year on a 3 year contract extension which was originally signed in 2007. He is due to earn $3.9m this season. He started 24 games last season and averaged 3.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 14.7 minutes per game.
