Unlikely scenario, but is this possible? Since the Raptors will essentially be making the pick for the Pacers tonight (since the deal cannot become official); what happens if the Raptors decide they like the pick before the deadline and want to keep him. Obviously the deal would be off. Can they do this or would there be legalities that would disallow it?

I think that soon as the paperwork is signed neither side can back out.

good question that i do not have the answer to. wonder if they could also somewhat sabotage the pick if a player falls for more than just jo.

Sure they could, but no other team would ever want to make another trade with them around the draft again, and that would cause serious problems for their flexibility in the future.
