Raptors' Siakam Hit With Huge Fine For Chirping His Own Coach

Here's something you don't see everyday as the Toronto Raptors have fined Pascal Siakam $50,000 for having some choice words for head coach Nick Nurse after the team lost last Sunday to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Raptors have been spiraling out of control the past few weeks and have now lost nine games in a row after losing to the brutal Houston Rockets on Monday.

As for Siakam, according to Charania the two exchanged some heated words after the 11-point loss which is obviously stemming from the built up frustration of losing after being just two seasons removed from a title. 

Siakam has struggled the entire season which actually dates back to the Bubble playoffs last season. So far this year he's averaging 19.8 points 7.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.

The Raptors are expected to trade Kyle Lowry and Norm Powell before the trade deadline, but Siakam appears a part of their future at this point.
