DeRozan’s Jumper Seals 92-91 Raptors Win Over Knicks

SBN: Raptors HQ (John Gaudes) — It was the perfect DeRozan game, in an imperfect basketball game.

What Is The Best Trade in Raptors History?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — With Serge Ibaka incoming, we look back at the best deals in Toronto. Like any team in the NBA, the Raptors have made their share of transactions.
