The Raptors didn't have to dip too far into their war chest of young assets, but they'll send Poeltl as the sweetener in the deal alongside DeMar DeRozan. Poeltl played in all 82 games last season, coming off the bench to average 6.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 18.6 minutes per game. He'll likely play slightly increased role in San Antonio, which doesn't have a ton of depth at center outside of LaMarcus Aldridge and an aging Pau Gasol.
Poeltl had 16 points (8-10 FG, 0-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 116-109 loss to Miami.
Poeltl had arguably his best game of the season, finishing with a double-double to go with a combined five defensive stats. He has shown his potential on more than one occasion this season and there is a slight chance he becomes the Raptors starting center at some stage in the next season or two. He is going to be a big part of their playoff hopes and their future.
Poeltl produced 12 points (6-8 FG), seven rebounds and one block across 23 minutes in Monday's 108-98 win over the Pistons.
Poeltl continues his strong run to close the season, as he has now scored double-digit points and tallied over five rebounds in each of the past three contests. Though he won't get much time in the postseason, Poeltl is a viable threat should any of the starting players get in foul trouble.
Poeltl recorded 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 27 minutes during a 132-129 loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
Poeltl was unusually aggressive in Wednesday's loss as he put up a season-high 13 field goal attempts en route to 17 points, which marked just one point shy of tying his season high. The scoring burst came from nowhere, as he had only scored in double figures one other time during March. Poeltl is tough to own at the moment due to his inconsistency.
Poeltl put up just six points (3-3 FG, 0-1 FT), three rebounds and three blocks in 22 minutes during Friday's 102-95 victory over Washington.
Poeltl blocked another three shots in Friday's victory, taking his total to 14 blocks in his last five games. He continues to put up some sneaky value despite the low scoring. His minutes appear to be locked into the low 20's and with that time he is able to produce high efficiency on low volume with a few rebounds and defensive stats. He is more of a flier in standard leagues but is worth look in the deeper leagues.
