The Cleveland Cavaliers sent away nearly half their team Thursday in a bid to make the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year under the reign of LeBron James. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Might the Toronto Raptors respond by repatriating one of the greatest players in franchise history? Anything seems possible now, even the return of Mr. Vince Carter in what would be the narrative to crush all narratives if – and we stress if – it was to actually happen. Carter has been discussed internally by the Raptors, according to multiple sources, but only as one option among several. Adding Carter, or any other veteran likely to be waived or bought out in the coming weeks, is the only remaining option the Raptors have if they want to upgrade their roster after making no significant moves leading up to Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline.
Could Vince Carter be missing piece to Raptors playoff puzzle?
