Well, it looks like it took a day for the Toronto Raptors' rumors to start back up after Shai Gilgeous-Alexander made his intentions known of wanting to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The highlight of media day for the Thunder was Gilgeous-Alexander downplaying any trade rumor and talks about him growing unhappy with his current situation.
"Honestly, I don't pay attention to like the NBA media stuff and what gets tweeted and what circulates around the web," said Gilgeous-Alexander. "Try to stay focused with what I've got going on, me getting better, the guys that are on the team. Just try and just be a better team next season, a better player next season."
Gilgeous-Alexander made his stance even more clear when asked about his content status with the team during his interview with The Athletic's Andrew Schlecht.
"I know what I signed up for when I signed a five-year extension," said Gilgeous-Alexander to The Athletic. "And I don't think we're gonna be losing for much longer. So it's not like I signed up to lose or anything. I believe in this team. I think we're heading in the right direction."
Despite the annoyance it might cause among Thunder fans, the Raptors are only doing what a smart franchise would do. Things can change pretty quickly in the NBA. But for right now, Gilgeous-Alexander is bought into the Thunder's rebuilding plan.
