What does this mean? The Raptors are short a point guard and Tyus Jones, Jerian Grant, and the guy I picked earlier today, Delon Wright is still available. Look for the Raptors to draft a PG.
The move gives the Raptors an additional $6.6M in cap space this off-season, inching them upto $36M.
Needless to say, this is an excellent haul from a very poor defensive player, even though the Clippers pick is likely to not be great. The L.A. Clippers’ 1st round pick to Milwaukee is protected for selections 1-14 in 2017, 1-14 in 2018 and 1-14 in 2019; if the Clippers have not conveyed a 1st round pick to Milwaukee by 2019, then the they will instead convey their 2020 2nd round pick and 2021 2nd round pick to Milwaukee.
The Raptors also acquired the 46th pick in this draft, so look forward to them filling up their D-League team some more.
This immediately is an addition-by-subtraction move in terms of defense. More to follow, for sure.

Future Clips 1st TOR just got is lotto-protected, will probably low. But getting any 1st for Vasquez is good work.

That future first going to Raptors comes from the Clippers. Protected 15-30 from 2017-19. https://t.co/XffWqXOPCD
