Title: Is a Fred VanVleet sign-and-trade possible? Raptors offseason mailbag Pt. 1
Date: November 16, 2020

Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I opened up the mailbag to answer questions about the rules around trades and sign-and-trades and begin looking at some Raptors sign-and-trade possibilities.
This week could be an absolute whirlwind of transactions. Understandably, you all had a lot of questions. And a lot of trade ideas.
I ended up splitting the pre-offseason mailbag into three parts that will run Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Today, we mostly focus on what options are available to the Raptors in sign-and-trade as well as the general trade rules that govern the next few weeks. Tomorrow, we’ll dive deep into your regular (not sign-and-trade) trade proposals. On Wednesday, we’ll handle draft and free agency questions.
Let’s get it.
