Regardless of how or why it happened, it’s a very bad look to lose another asset for nothing. After reportedly overvaluing their assets at the deadline, misreading the FVV situation, and now this, confidence is shaky about how this club reads the market lately. – 1:44 PM

More on this storyline

There is persistent speculation that Pascal Siakam — the team’s leading scorer, second-most prolific playmaker and ultimate home-grown success story — could be traded before the regular season starts and perhaps much sooner as the NBA’s transaction market simmers. -via SportsNet / July 5, 2023
League sources who spoke with HoopsHype said multiple teams who attempted to trade for Pascal Siakam were dissuaded from giving up a treasure chest of assets for the two-time All-Star in the final year of his contract since he was unwilling to discuss an extension elsewhere as Bleacher Report’s Chris Haynes mentioned. -via HoopsHype / June 29, 2023
