(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)   The Toronto Raptors hit the proverbial reset button when they traded a few of their key players, including Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, and Dennis Schroder at midseason. That means they appear to be in full rebuild mode, and there could be more major moves to come this offseason. Per Evan Sidery, the Raptors are reportedly planning to trade Bruce Brown this summer.

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)   Bruce Brown won a championship with the Denver Nuggets last season so it was assumed he’d have an amazing run in 2023–24. Unfortunately, his season has been filled with a couple of big moves and a lack of cohesion with his new teams. Because of that, it’s expected that the Toronto Raptors will trade Brown by next month, around the time of the NBA Draft, according to Doug Smith, via NBACentral.

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)   The 2023-24 NBA season has been forgettable, to say the least, for the Toronto Raptors, with the team finishing the season as one of the worst squads in the league. Although the Raptors didn’t have high expectations coming into the 2023-24 campaign, the team seemed talented enough to rally around Scottie Barnes and win more than 25 games, which they couldn’t, as Toronto finished with a disappointing record of 25-57. Fortunately, the Raptors can look forward to the 2024 NBA Draft, where the team now owns three picks in the first 31 selections, whi ..read more

(Photo by Jeenah Moon/Getty Images)   The Toronto Raptors have undergone some big changes this year, including the addition of their new head coach, Darko Rajaković. Things haven’t panned out for Toronto and they are the 12th seed in the East and out of playoff contention. Some people have questioned Rajaković’s coaching skills because of the Raptors’ lackluster season. But Eric Koreen thinks that it’s too soon to really judge Rajaković. “You cannot say Rajaković is a good or bad late-game coach, because his team is so untested,” Koreen wrote for The Athletic. The Raptors' season hasn't ..read more

(Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)   The Toronto Raptors are almost certainly rebuilding after trading away Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby this season, but it didn’t prevent them from deciding to extend a veteran player.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, Olynyk has agreed to a two-year extension to remain in Toronto past this season. Toronto Raptors center Kelly Olynyk has agreed on a two-year ..read more

Vince Carter Reveals Which Jersey He’s Wearing For HOF

(Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images)   Vince Carter’s NBA legacy is a complicated one. His longevity was what turned him from a very good player into a legendary one. Carter is the only player to play in four different decades (90s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s). That gives him his rightful place in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. With that in mind, Chandler Parsons asked him which jersey he would wear for his Hall of Fame induction if he could choose one (Via FanDuel and Basketball on X). “Toronto, Toronto, Toronto. It has to be, it’s where it all started. Yes, I had great ye ..read more

(Photo by Justin Casterline/Getty Images)   The Toronto Raptors finally embraced their future when they dealt OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam before the trade deadline. The Raptors have been stuck in mediocrity for years, but by trading away Anunoby and Siakam they were able to hand the keys of the franchise to Scottie Barnes. Barnes had a strong start to the 2023-24 NBA season, and thus made it easier for the Raptors to part with their veterans and kickstart their rebuild. Now, Barnes will be making his first All-Star appearance in Indianapolis this weekend and it should be an exciting mome ..read more
