The Toronto Raptors are mulling trade possibilities as the Feb. 21 deadline approaches.

Dwane Casey has been in constant communication with general manager Bryan Colangelo and executive vice-president of basketball operations Ed Stefanski on possible moves.

"Bryan and I are talking every day about it (along with) Ed," Casey explained. "They are looking at whatever can help our team become better whether it's short term or long term, they're talking about it."

Casey expects talks to escalate over the next 30 days.

"There's nothing imminent right now but I am sure things are going to heat up as the trade deadline gets near," Casey said. "They are looking at every situation that can help our team and our program take the next step."
