Siakam is adamant.

Yahoo Sports, a local U.S. media outlet, reported on the Pascal Siakam trade situation on February 2 (KST). According to the article, “Siakam is unlikely to sign an extension with a new team even if he is traded. Siakam would prefer to stay in Toronto and become a free agent at the end of the season rather than be traded. The Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies, and Detroit Pistons are among the teams that could be interested in Siakam.”

Market interest in Siakam is strong. On February 2, Siakam’s team, the Toronto Raptors, traded OG Anunoby to the New York Knicks for RJ Barrett, Imanuel Quinckley, and others. The implications of the trade were clear. 안전카지노사이트 The Raptors knew they wouldn’t be able to retain Anunoby, who becomes a free agent at the end of the season, and they got what they paid for.

All eyes then naturally turn to Siakam. Siakam, like Anunoby, is a free agent at the end of this season. If we use the same criteria as Anunoby, we can assume that Siakam will be traded.

However, unlike Anunoby, Siakam is an All-NBA player who is beyond All-Star caliber. Toronto would want more in return than Anunoby.

The problem is for Siakam. Siakam is a free agent after this season. Under NBA rules, the team that can offer him the most money is his original team, Toronto. If he were to be traded, the maximum salary he could receive would be reduced against his will. This is why it’s not in Siakam’s best interest to be traded.

If Siakam says he doesn’t want to sign an extension after being traded, it’s a liability for the team that signs him. Siakam is a great player, but he risks becoming a free agent at the end of the season. The team paid a lot of money for Siakam because he can become a free agent.

This is why the trade market for Siakam is currently stalled. There are a lot of different interests at stake in a Siakam trade, including Siakam himself, Toronto, and the team that trades him. The trade deadline is in mid-February. It’s unlikely we’ll know where Siakam will be by then.
