Basketball Insiders Michael Scotto says the Toronto Raptors are trying to trade down in the NBA Draft tonight possibly to save salary cap space.
Raptors are gauging the market for interest in the No. 23 pick and are open to moving down in the draft, sources told Basketball Insiders.

There are several teams without a first round draft pick that could be interested. The Raptors may be interested in trading for second round draft picks as unsigned players taken in the second round do not count against the cap.
