The Pascal Siakam trade rumors are coming in hot.
He is the biggest name available ahead of the 2024 NBA Trade Deadline.
The Raptors have signaled that they are ready to build around Scottie Barnes after making the O.G. Anunoby trade. They could now look to trade Siakam to officially enter a new era.
Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports was recently on an X Space talking about the latest Raptors rumors.
Fischer listed 4 teams that are heavily connected to Siakam: Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons.
The Pacers have been linked to Siakam as they could look to pair him with Tyrese Haliburton to try and take the next step in the Eastern Conference.
The Kings recently pulled out of Siakam trade talks after showing strong interest, but things remain fluid between both sides.
The Pistons are reportedly actively looking for a 4-man and O.G. Anunoby along with Siakam were named. Anunoby of course was recently dealt by the Raptors to the New York Knicks a part of a five-man trade.
The Mavericks have been linked to Siakam before and they make a ton of sense. Dallas could look to add another star alongside Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving in an attempt to compete for a title.
Dallas has emerged as one of the Western Conference contenders that is continuously on the phone trying to make a move, per Fischer.
Which team will land Siakam?
All of these teams mentioned by Fischer as a potential landing spot for Siakam make sense. However, it’s going to come down to who has the most compelling offer.
It has been reported that the Raptors are looking for young players with star upside in a potential Siakam deal.
The Mavericks don’t fit that bill as they are shopping Richaun Holmes & Tim Hardaway Jr.
The Pistons likely wouldn’t part ways with Cade Cunningham, Jalen Duren or Ausar Thompson.
The Kings likely wouldn’t part ways with Keegan Murray.
Therefore, that would leave the Pacers as an intriguing landing spot since they do have many good young pieces like Bennedict Mathurin and Jarace Walker.
