The NBA trade deadline is March 15 and the 10-24 Toronto Raptors, who have the fourth-worst record in the league, have already had a "multitude of offers" for point guard Jose Calderon and guard Leandro Barbosa.

However, the team has said no to everything so far, according to the Toronto Sun. The paper also notes that "Raptors president/general manager Bryan Colangelo has said in the past that he is interested in extended Barbosa, who will be unrestricted this season."

If Barbosa does get dealt, though, sources tell the paper that it could be in an "extend-and-trade scenario."

Meanwhile, the Sun reports that even though the Raptors would love to have swingman Wilson Chandler on the roster, it isn't likely that the team will make an offer to the restricted free agent before the Thursday deadline because Toronto doesn't "have the cap space to submit an offer Denver would not match."

Sources tell the paper that "Toronto has balked at Chandler's asking price, but has not completely closed the door if he becomes unrestricted and is willing to accept less money."
