As the Toronto Raptors made themselves into a legitimate Eastern Conference contender for the upcoming season, they had a pretty solid last season as they made it into the playoffs before being defeated by the Washington Wizards. The Raptors have some of the best young talent in the association including Terrence Ross, DeMar DeRozan, and Kyle Lowry. Check out some of their best plays...
The Raptors had a disappointing 2015 season, one that ended with a somewhat embarrassing first round playoff sweep at the hands of Paul Pierce and the Washington Wizards.As the team looked to retool this summer, DeMar DeRozan's name was one that came up in trade rumors. Toronto made moves to improve what was the league's 23rd ranked defense, which included letting the reigning Sixth...
Toronto Raptors President and General Manager called in from South Africa to discuss what he has been up to and talk a bit about Bismack Biyombo.
Minutes after the July Moratorium ended Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri was on the phone to Bismack Biyombo. "It's quite a funny story," Biyombo said. "I have known Masai for a while and right after 12, it was like 12:03, I got a phone call from Masai, so I was asking myself, is he going to talk to me about the summer camps and stuff or is it just going to be about basketball?"
It shouldn't surprise anyone that Toronto Raptors second round draft pick Norman is considered to be one of the standout players we should be keeping an eye on once the regular season starts.
The Houston Rockets have agreed to a one-year deal at the veteran's minimum with Chucky Hayes. Hayes played for the Rockets between 2006 and 2011. Hayes was most recently with the Toronto Raptors.
At the end of the season it looked like the Toronto Raptors Bruno Caboclo was still 2 years away from being 2 years away, but even with this year's mediocre Summer League stats, it can be safely assumed at least one of those years is now behind him. The Raptors still don’t have any playing time for a raw developing prospect, but since the Raptors 905 does, Caboclo should be expected...
TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Raptors hired Jerry Stackhouse, Rex Kalamian and Andy Greer as assistant coaches Wednesday, completing Dwayne Casey's staff.

Greer spent the past five seasons as...
Who has been the best starting unit for the Toronto Raptors over the past 20 years? There haven't been many over .500 seasons for Toronto, but the teams that did it, earned it and were fun to watch.
GM Masai Ujiri’s big free agent signing was, of course, the 60-win Atlanta Hawks starting small forward DeMarre Carroll and it happened fast. “I drooled at the mouth just to play alongside guys like Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan," Carroll said. "Those two All-Star guys, they bring a lot. It was really just deciding to be able to come to a winning program and to help this team...
Nicolas Batum has interest in playing for the Toronto Raptors when he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2016. Toronto is an international city that appeals to Batum. The Charlotte Hornets acquired Batum this offseason from the Portland Trail Blazers despite him entering his contract year. General manager Rich Cho and assistant general manager Chad Buchanan are familiar with Batum...
The Toronto Raptors Luis Scola is 5-0 against Canada at the FIBA Americas tournaments and in 2009, he took away Canada's last and best chance at a medal in the final game. Argentina has been good for while, so it's been no disgrace for the Canadian side to lose to them, but still, you'd think someone would have remembered just how good Scola has been?
The Toronto Raptors have officially signed undrafted free agents Ronald Roberts, Axel Toupane and Michale Kyser to bring their training camp roster to 17 players. It is believed that all three players have been signed to modest non-guaranteed deals.
The Toronto Raptors do have the option to go with a typical small ball lineup. However, a more interesting and potentially mind-boggling option for Raptors opponents would be to go bigger and play the same way. Lowry, DeRozan, Carroll, Patterson and Scola. Now that’s a lineup with size, smarts, rebounding and no player an opponent can cheat off on defense.
Toronto Raptors guard and Compton native DeMar DeRozan is always right at home playing in the Drew League and Sunday he had the line of the summer racking up 38 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. A video posted by Drew League (@drewleague) on Jul 22, 2015 at 12:57pm PDT The post DeMar DeRozan Gets a Triple-Double at the Drew League appeared first on Hooped Up.
It’s become evident that the Toronto Raptors have made a decision on their direction for the upcoming season. The Raptors are looking to win and compete in an Eastern Conference that they likely believe they have a shot in. It’s a fair thought. The East is weak outside of powerhouse Cleveland, and it’s really anyone’s game after that. Luis Scola The Raptors added...
