The Toronto Raptors Are In Big Trouble

The Toronto Raptors lost to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night and have dropped to 1-6 on the season, sitting 14th place in the Eastern Conference. These Raptors are not familiar with this kind of territory and if the team continues to struggle, Raps fans are going to see massive changes to the roster. 

The likes of Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam have been linked to trade rumors for weeks now and the noise is picking up volume. 

As pointed in above, the Raptors have missed on several free agents including this year and it's starting to take a toll on the team. They also let Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka walk and replaced them with Alex Len and Aron Baynes, and quite frankly it's been a horrible decision. Another dud performance against the Suns showed exactly what the Raps are missing....

Keep an eye on the Raptors. If 1-6 turns into 4-15, or something along those lines, their record is going to influence management's decision making. We could see them clean house and hit the 'reset' button for next season when they'll have a ton of cap space and a fresh outlook on life. Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby are untouchable, after that is anyone's guess.

#WeTheNorth turned into #WeTheSouth and the team had no clue everyone would be referring to the standings.
