Report: Jazz 'Interested' in Raptors Guard Gary Trent Jr.

It continues to seem unlikely the Raptors pull off a deal for Gobert who doesn't quite fit into Toronto's versatile, wing-centric defensive scheme. While Toronto does have a need for some size on paper, Raptors president Masai Ujiri didn't seem particularly concerned about the team's lack of a traditional center during his season-ending press conference.
