The Toronto Raptors haven't made the playoffs in four seasons, so it is no surprise there are reports of the team dangling their draft pick, No. 8 overall and third-year forward Ed Davis to potential suitors.  NBA league executives are in Chicago this week for the pre-draft camp and some of them would be looking to make a splash during the draft or free-agency.  Toronto finished the 2011-12 season with 23-43 record.

ESPN.com and CBSSports.com are reporting that the Raptors are looking for a trade partner because they want an elite small forward.  Those sources told ESPN.com that the Raptors have two players in mind: Memphis Grizzles swingman Rudy Gay and Philadelphia 76ers forward Andre Iguodala.  Gay averaged 19 points a game last season and Iguodala averaged 12 points and six boards per contest.
