Confirmed: Raptors Trade Cory Joseph for CJ Miles (Sign & Trade)
#1
The next move.  Miles will get a 3 year, $25 million deal.

I'm actually not too familiar with Miles.

I thought it was a male lol.

Image search reveals what you saw though...I think the Raptors should sign her instead! Wink

Miles is a solid 3 pt shooter and capable defender. Doesn't really get to the rim much, but that's not needed with Lowry and Derozan. I actually think he's going to function really nicely in the Raptors offence, and defensively he won't be relied upon as much with Derozan typically guarding the opposition's best wing. I don't think this makes Toronto drastically better, but they were desperate for a wing player or two and Joseph was made expendable with Delon Wright progressing quite well.

Getting Miles locked up for 3 years at a more than reasonable rate is a nice bonus too. I think Ujiri did quite well here.

I don't think the Raptors are that far behind the Celtics. Boston added Hayward but they lost Bradley, who might be the best on-ball defender in the NBA.

Derozan/Lowry/Ibaka is pretty close to Boston's big three of IT/Hayward/Horford. I think where Boston leaps ahead of Toronto is their young depth, with guys like Smart, Brown, and Tatum.

As for Cleveland, I think they are going to take a step back next year, but with things staying as they are it's hard to imagine anyone taking them out in the East, though I don't think it will be nearly as easy a ride as it was this past year. Boston and Milwaukee are both better, and Toronto and Washington are right there as well.

Toronto will likely need to strike gold in the draft (this past year or next) or have Masai pull off a heist in order for them to take it to the next level though. I do think they will remain competitive and be one of the five best teams in the East (along with CLE, BOS, WAS, and MIL).

How much can Normal Powell improve?

I'm thinking he's going to get much more playing time this year.

Powell played way better last year after Ross was dealt. I think he actually has starter potential given the right circumstance, but I'm not sure he'll ever realize it on Toronto, playing behind Derozan. He might get spot starter games at the 2 if they decide to put Derozan at the 3, but I don't think it would be anything consistent and long term.

He's probably a poor man's Avery Bradley. A little undersized at the 2, which means his defensive potential is basically limited to guarding the 1 and 2, but his offensive game has grown, and he's probably learned some good habits from Derozan which has improved his driving to the rim game. If he can get a more consistent jump shot I can see him being a 15 ppg guy. I think he's going to get some opportunities to start this year, so there's probably a good chance that he gets that opportunity to grow his game.
