Report: Nets Talking To Raptors About Expanding Deal

Although the original Kyrie Irving trade has now been made official, NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski tells us that the Brooklyn Nets spent the day talking with the Toronto Raptors about entering the trade as a 3rd team.

Woj reported that the Nets were evaluating opportunities to expand the deal with a third team. And that team, from all indications, is the Toronto Raptors.

Insider Brian Windhorst has already dropped a hint that the Nets could be looking at turning around one of the assets they received from Dallas to the Toronto Raptors for OG Anunoby.

Marc Stein has another possibility that's been floated by the Nets:

Stein also adds that the Nets "have been described to me as a team with Pascal Siakam interest ... although the signals entering the final week of trade season have reflected a reluctance from Toronto to this point to make Siakam available."

Now that the deal has been made official as the original two-team deal, Stein notes that Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith can still be traded before the deadline on separate deals, but can't be combined with other contracts.
