The Raptors did what they had to do to shore up a loose point guard rotation this week, but the other shoe that could have dropped never really had a chance.

Looking back on the NBA trade deadline, Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo said the team really got its work done three weeks earlier with the acquisition of Rudy Gay. He categorized Thursday’s deal for point guard Sebastian Telfair as “insurance”, but said any serious interest by opposing teams in acquiring Andrea Bargnani never really had a chance.
