Thursday February 19 2009 – 12:51pm Eastern (Toronto)
It’s trade deadline day in the NBA, but things have been pretty quiet so far. Aside from a small Minnesota/Sacramento deal, there’s not much to talk about (though there are ‘rumours’ (and you know how much I hate those) that Shaq could be on his way to Cleveland).
Anyway, nothing new to report RE: the Raptors either — not as far as trades go that is. However, there is an update on All Star forward Chris Bosh …
The big man will play in New York tomorrow night.
After missing 5 games with a sprained knee, Bosh plans on suiting-up against the Knicks — and this is a key stretch for Toronto with winnable ball games against New York, New York, and Minnesota.
Zack Cooper will likely have more later – he was covering practice today – as I am heading out to the airport to catch the flight to New York City.
Perhaps Jonesy and I will VLOG later this evening – once the deadline has passed and we can break down some of the deals.
