Could Spurs-Raptors trade still be on table?

As we reported yesterday, the San Antonio Spurs target in their Tony Parker trade talks was Lithuanian big man Jonas Valanciunas.

The Spurs were rumored to be in trade talks with Toronto for the fifth pick and the Raptors just picked…you guessed it Jonas Valanciunas.

While the Raptors could have Valanciunas because they believe he was the best available player, there is the possibility that it means trade talks are still on. 

Just another twist in a very interesting draft.
