Mar 25 2021, 11:20 am

The Toronto Raptors are trading Matt Thomas to the Utah Jazz for a future second-round pick in a trade deadline deal according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Thomas is averaging 2.7 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game this season on less than eight minutes per game. Wojnarowski adds that this deal opens up another roster spot for the Raptors to use in a potential Kyle Lowry trade.

According to Blake Murphy of The Athletic, the second round pick is a 2021 pick that they acquired from the Golden State Warriors.

The Raptors traded Norman Powell earlier in the day and are rumoured to be talking to the Miami Heat and LA Lakers about dealing Lowry before the 3 pm ET/12 pm PT deadline.
