POLL: Should The Raptors Trade Pascal Siakam?

POLL: Should The Raptors Trade Pascal Siakam?

Some times fans fall in love with players, but other times they don’t for whatever reason and that’s what I’m trying to figure out about Pascal Siakam and his time with the Raptors.

Already criticized for his performance in the playoffs where he basically disappeared, he further alienated himself from Raptors fans when he got into a very public verbal spat with Nick Nurse last March after being benched.

For that reason, he raised more eyebrows when the NY Times featured him in the article, Pascal Siakam Has Heard the Rumors, but He’s Ready to Lead. This was an attempt for him to clear the air and explain some of his frustrations why Bobby Webster and Masai Ujiri didn’t make it clear to him that he was their man to lead the Raptors in the future.

You sign a max contract and still don’t know if you are the guy? How pathetic is that?

Should The Raptors Trade Pascal Siakam? That’s up to him..

If Pascal wants to be loved by Toronto, he needs to act the part… He has to earn it…

That includes not missing shots and layups at the end of games when we give him the ball, guys like Kyle Lowry earned the respect of fans by giving it 100% every game and not pointing fingers at anyone else.

But not let’s make this post all about just hating Siakim, he’s still one hell of a player..

Pascal Siakim is a very talented player and there have been many rumours about NBA kicking the tires to see if he’s available or not. Raptors management will always say the right things publicly, but many feel that if the right offer is made then Pascal will be traded.

It really comes down to the Raptors plan of competing this season or still looking out a couple of seasons away. They would likely get multiple prospects if they moved him that makes sense, or they think Pascal is the real thing and he’s a key part of the future.
