Raptors Weekly Extra Podcast, Feb 19 – Everything is alright

Title: Raptors Weekly Extra Podcast, Feb 19 – Everything is alright
Date: February 19, 2016
Original Source: Raptors Republic
Synopsis: I hosted the latest edition of the Raptors Republic Weekly Podcast, debriefing following a quiet NBA trade deadline.
The Extra (Extra) podcast talks about the trade deadline activity, or relative lack thereof.

  • On this week’s episode, hosts Blake Murphy and William Lou discuss the following:
    • The Raptors didn’t make a move at the deadline.
      • This kinda sucks.
      • Are the Pistons and Hornets a bigger 2-7 matchup threat now?
    • Is it really worth being upset about, though?
      • The Raptors remain the second-best team in the East.
      • No trade would have made them No. 1.
      • The road is tougher now, but the window to the conference finals is still ajar.
      • The teams around them made only marginal improvements.
      • By not making a deal, the Raptors are well-positioned for the near future.
    • How can the Raptors improve from here?
      • Start Patrick Patterson.
      • Cut Anthony Bennett for a buyout candidate.
    • This isn’t last year’s team.
      • This team is in a much better spot than the one with a similar record from a year ago.
    • A reminder: Check back Friday for the regularly scheduled Extra pod, when we’ll break down the Raptors’ deadline activities and those of the teams around them.
