Nets wanted to tinker with their list after the acquisition Andre Drummond in the blockbuster James Harden-Ben Simmons dealthat gave them a bunch of great people. However, trade with the Raptors inevitably failed.
It is reported that Toronto would send Brooklyn a protected choice in the first round. The team instead exchanged it for San Antonio Spears together with Goran Dragic he became a veteran Thaddeus the Young.
Claxton is hosting the best-run campaign in Brooklyn, scoring 9.1 points and 5.6 rebounds per competition, throwing 64% off the field. The third-year professional is struggling to stay on the floor, qualifying for just 25 games this season.
It should be noted that Claxton with a height of 6 feet 11 would be the tallest player in the Raptors – the only NBA franchise at the moment without a player above 6 feet 9.
