Gary Trent Jr.
F - TOR
Gary Trent Jr. has agreed to a three-year deal that is worth $54 million with Toronto.
With Kyle Lowry headed to Miami, Trent Jr. and Fred VanVleet have a chance to lead this Raptors backcourt with Malachi Flynn also in the mix. It should be an interesting dynamic between Trent Jr. and VanVleet.
Gary Trent (coach's decision) did not play in Friday’s 114-110 loss to the Mavericks.
Trent was held out of the rotation despite being healthy. He’s missed the last two games via the coach’s decision. Trent’s next chance to return will be the season finale against the Pacers on Sunday.
Gary Trent supplied 18 points (5-20 FG, 2-8 3PT, 6-8 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Saturday's 109-99 loss to the Grizzlies.
Trent matched Pascal Siakam with 18 points to lead the Raptors in scoring during Saturday’s loss. Since returning from a leg injury on May 6th, he’s been on fire his last two games. Trent is averaging 21.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals, and 3.5 triples during that span. The Raptors' next scheduled game is Tuesday, home against the Clippers.
Gary Trent (leg) supplied 25 points (8-16 FG, 5-10 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, an assist and a steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's 131-129 overtime loss against the Wizards.
Trent returned Thursday after missing six games due to a lower leg injury. He showed no signs of rust by pouring in 25 points in Thursday’s loss to the Wizards. Trent was in the startling lineup Thursday but could return to the bench with the impending return of Kyle Lowry (rest). The 22-year-old guard is averaging 15.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals, and 2.9 triples across 31.0 minutes in 2020-21. Trent will look to build on Thursday’s performance when the Raptors host the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Toronto Raptors SG Gary Trent Jr. (leg) will be available to play against the Washington Wizards on Thursday night.
A left leg contusion has kept Trent Jr. sidelined for the past several games but he will return to Toronto's lineup against the Washington Wizards on Thursday. Prior to his injury, the Raptors' guard-combo hybrid had scored 20+ points in three of his last five games, including a 44 point game against the Cavaliers in early April. Fantasy managers should exercise caution when plugging him into lineups due to the nature of the injury but he can provide a solid floor with huge upside if he gets into a rhythm on Thursday night. Considering OG Anunoby (calf) is ruled out already, Trent Jr. makes for a fine value play in DFS contests.
