Host William Lou invites Joseph Casciaro of theScore onto the podcast to discuss a plan of action in the wake of Jared Sullinger’s injury.

    • Problems with starting Patrick Patterson
    • Going small with DeMarre Carroll
  • Should the Raptors make a trade or a signing to plug frontcourt?
  • What to do at backup center in Sullinger’s absence
    • Bebe Nogueira or Jakob Poeltl? Who will hold down that role
  • Is Jonas Valanciunas ready to step up?
  • Fred VanVleet winning the 15th spot
  • Look ahead to Detroit and Cleveland
  • Twitter questions
