This is a different situation though.

I agree, that would be a bad trade for the Raptors. If I were them, I would try to talk him into staying. Since they are gonna trade him, they know it's hard to get equal value in trades with the way the salary cap works. Look at the Shaq deal. The Lakers got an over the hill center, a one-dimensional PF, and a good young player for the most dominating player in the league. Not very equal. I wouldn't be suprised to see this deal happen, but I wouldn't be suprised to see it not happen. I am suprised that this deal was offered by the Raptors. Usually other teams make offers for the star players.
