06:55 AM ET 02.18 | Ahead of Thursday's trade deadline, the Raptors seem to be looking for a way to reshape their point guard situation. With the New York Knicks continuing to aggressively pursue Kyle Lowry, who has turned in a career season, Toronto has explored complicated deals that would bring back a replacement for the soon-to-be free agent. It's no secret Boston has dangled four-time all-star Rajon Rondo league-wide and while the asking price is steep, he has piqued the interest of Toronto's front office, according to multiple sources. Toronto is eager to up its "star" quotient and is also enamoured with Rondo's resume, particularly his four all-defensive team selections (two all-NBA first team). He has many backers in the organization.
