According to the latest league-wide gossip, the Raptors are said to be interested in trading for veteran forward Joe Smith.

The much-travelled Smith is a coveted player because of his versatility. He never has lived up to his billing as the first overall pick, but Smith brings a toughness and rebounding presence teams such as Toronto need.

Miami and Orlando also are said to be keen on trading for Smith, whose days in Oklahoma City appear numbered.

The speculation comes as the Raptors prepare to play the host Golden State Warriors tonight, the team that took the Maryland product first overall back in 1995.

The Raptors have been beaten on the boards virtually every night and can't stop teams from scoring in the paint.

They recently added veteran free agent Jake Voskuhl, who isn't as accomplished a player as Smith.

Voskuhl and Kris Humphries played a combined 53 seconds in Saturday's loss in Portland.

Toronto's other big man off the bench is Andrea Bargnani, who is more of a perimeter offensive threat than a rebounding or defensive presence.
