Toronto Raptors Roster 2020 Raptors Roster

16-7, 4th in East Atlantic

The 2018-2019 season will never be forgotten by the Toronto Raptors, as the franchise was able to win its first ever NBA championship after a heroic playoff run by Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and astounding play from the rest of the roster as well. However, despite doing basically everything right, it wasn’t enough to keep Kawhi from returning home to Los Angeles, leaving the roster in an interesting spot. A core including Pascal Siakam, Kyle Lowry, and Marc Gasol is still could enough to be a good playoff team in the weaker eastern conference, but the fact that they don’t have a perennial superstar and that Lowry, Gasol, Fred VanVleet, and Serge Ibaka will all be unrestricted free agents next summer provides some incentive for GM Masai Ujiri to finally put Toronto into rebuild-mode.

2019-2020 Toronto Raptors Roster Top 3 Questions

Can Pascal Siakam Continue to Exceed Expectations?

Last year, Pascal Siakam made huge strides in just about every major statistical category last season, and his leap was officially justified by taking home the Most Improved Player award this offseason. While his increase in production is super encouraging to say the least, how much more can the young star grow? Everything points to us finding out this season how much Siakam can really do, as he is poised to be the number one option on offense after Kawhi’s departure. He will have to adjust to becoming the primary focus of the opposing defense, but his year-to-year improvement suggests he is ready for the challenge.

Will VanVleet be Handed the Keys to the Offense?

After Siakam, Fred VanVleet is arguably the second most important player to Toronto’s future. He shined in the postseason as his he caught fire from downtown against Milwaukee and Golden State, and he figures to be worthy of a long-term contract with the team. However, with Kyle Lowry still in the fold, he projects to remain in his spot-up shooting role while they are on the court together. This situation may frustrate VanVleet, who could be more eager to show off his potential as a primary ball handler before he hits unrestricted free agency in 2020.

How Long Will This Group Stay Together?

Ever since he was hired as general manager, there have always been rumors of Masai Ujiri wanting to tear down the Toronto roster so he could build something from scratch. However, because his teams have always had great success on the court, he never had any valid reason to do so. This played a major factor in his decision to ultimately trade for Kawhi, as he was prepared to start over if they lost him in free agency the next season. Now that that has happened, if the Raptors don’t have a strong start to the year, don’t be surprised if players like Lowry, Gasol, and Ibaka are available for contenders looking to strengthen their roster.
