The 2023 Trade Deadline day is here and while most people are still reeling from the middle of the night Kevin Durant trade, we are here to talk the Raptors trades!

Talks have been going on all week and the Raptors are expected to make some moves so check back here for the latest until the 3pm EST deadline.

Thursday February 9: 12:51 AM

The Raptors reach an agreement to acquire Jakob Poeltl from the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Khem Birch, ESPN reports:

The trade will also see Toronto handing over a protected first round pick for 2024, and two future second round picks.

The Raptors get back Poeltl after trading him in 2018 for Kawhi Leonard.

Check back on this thread for more throughout the day.

Thursday February 9: 2:07 AM

ESPN reports that talks for Toronto’s OG Anunoby are going “late into the trade deadline,” as Western Conference teams ramp up after the Kevin Durant to Phoenix news. More to come later (or not?)

Thursday Feb 9: 10:30 AM

It’s being reported that the first round pick being sent to San Antonio for Jakob Poeltl is protected 1-6th through 2026.

In simple terms, if the Raptors get a first round pick that’s No. 1 through No.6 from 2024 until 2026, it will stay with Toronto. The first time they get a pick from No.7 onward, it will go to the Spurs.

Thursday February 9: 1:00PM

Raptors PR officially announces the trade of Khem Birch and picks for Jakob Poeltl. Also announce that Poeltl will wear the number 19 as opposed to his old Raptors number 42.
