The Raptors fired coach Dwane Casey this offseason, but that may not be their only big move.

The Raptors are exploring all trade options, according to a report from the Toronto Sun . The report cited unidentified league sources.

According to the report, Toronto could look to move Kyle Lowry or DeMar DeRozan. Lowry, a four-time All-Star, averaged 16.2 points and 6.9 assists per game last season. The 32-year-old guard signed a three-year, $100 million contract with the Raptors in July.

DeRozan was named to the NBA All-Second Team this week. He tallied 23 points and 5.2 assists per game in 2017-18.

Toronto could also deal big men Jonas Valanciunas and Serge Ibaka, the report says.

The Raptors finished last season with a 59-23 record and earned the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. But after topping the Wizards in six games in their first-round series, the Raptors were swept by the Cavaliers.

Toronto dismissed Casey, who posted a 320-238 record and made five playoff appearances in seven seasons, in mid-May.
