Ranking Every Raptor: Quasi-Memorable Roster Fringe — #150 - 121

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — Most of these Raptors players were bad, but had moments that were memorably good. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re ranking every player in Raptors history based on their contributions to the team. Arbitrary criteria, don’t get mad at me, yaddah yaddah. Monday’s cluster of 30 journeyman failed to produce much in the way of stand-out moments or poppin’ stat lines during their mostly...

Eastern Conference Competition Breakdown: Cream of the Crop

SBN: Raptors HQ (Josh Kern) — The 2018-2019 Eastern Conference looks to be a three-team race, with two dark horses bringing up the rear. Last week, we ran down the Toronto Raptors’ competition at the lower end of the Eastern Conference , ending up, perhaps unsurprisingly, with the consistently underwhelming Washington Wizards . I predicted the Raptors would carve out a 33-5 record against those 10 teams. But these...

Ranking Every Raptor: The Dudes Who Stunk Most — #218 - 181

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — A lot of players have played for the Raptors. These are the worst of the bunch. When the Raptors traded for Kawhi Leonard , the franchise leveled up. For 23 years, the Raptors have lacked a truly life-changing superstar. Vince Carter came close to reaching the upper crust, albeit during one of the deepest talent nadirs in league history, and the Kyle Lowry-DeMar DeRozan duo won a...

Eastern Conference Competition Breakdown: Starting at the Bottom

SBN: Raptors HQ (Josh Kern) — Let’s separate the Eastern Conference pretenders from contenders and predict how the Raptors will fare against each. Last week in this space I broke down the Raptors’ main moves this offseason . Naturally Toronto wasn’t the only team to make changes! The Eastern Conference is going to be a different beast in the 2018-19 season, so let’s take a look at the competition and see what the...

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — Mississauga’s greatest basketball show hits the court for the 2018-19 season soon. Here’s the info you need. Get ready, because the Raptors 905 are set to begin their fourth season as a franchise on Saturday, November 3rd at 2pm at the newly named Paramount Find Foods Centre.

There will be no Christmas Day game for the Raptors this year

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — Or maybe... ever? As it leaked last night, from mysterious Christmas sources, it felt increasingly likely Toronto would not be featured on the big NBA day of December 25th. To be honest, we knew this would likely be the case, even if the Raptors had added Kawhi Leonard , even if they had Finals aspirations, even if they had a built-in storyline for a big marquee game with a showdown...

The Raptors need soul, not skill, from the 14th roster spot

SBN: Raptors HQ (Sean Woodley) — The Raptors need to sign a big man. Here’s the case for a reunion with a former fan favourite. The Raptors are in the market for a guy, though not really out of necessity as much as technicality. Toronto’s roster has more useful wings than Nick Nurse can realistically use, three times as many good point guards as most teams employ (infinitely more than the Magic do), and a small but...

On Masai Ujiri’s big move and loyalty in professional sports

SBN: Raptors HQ (Dan Grant) — The Raptors boss is catching flak for his treatment of a homegrown star. Is it deserved? The Kawhi Leonard era is underway in Toronto, and its opening (and perhaps only) season represents a significant fork-in-the-road for the franchise. The window for contention, pegged at three years before last season began, has possibly been reduced by one — that is to say, it’s this year or bust. If...

Raptors avoid extinction; face Hornets on Saturday: Preview, start time & more

SBN: Raptors HQ (Joel E Stephens) — The Raptors survived the tournament with a win versus the Nuggets on Thrusday, and as such, they face the Hornets in a 6pm (EST) split on Saturday evening Toronto played a pretty dismal series of three games up until their victory on Thursday, but that’s not to say the entire squad was dismal. OG Anunoby might not be in the running for LVSL MVP, but he’s been an incredibly consistent...

The Cousins signing did not break the NBA of today, but what of tomorrow?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — It’s not the worst thing in the world for DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins to sign with the world-beating Warriors. But it could lead to trouble down the line for the league’s players. You’d be forgiven if, upon learning four-time All-Star DeMarcus Cousins was set to sign with the Golden State Warriors , winners of three of the last four NBA titles, your knee-jerk, unmediated reaction was...

Some trade ideas to re-tool the Raptors, and help some other teams

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Hackett) — Toronto may not be big players in this summer’s free agency market, but they could make some trades to remake their team. Here are a couple of ideas. So, fellow HQ contributor Joel Stephens put together a nice piece exploring some landing places for Norman Powell. The piece tries its best to find a team to take Norm off the Raptors ’ hands to shed some salary and more easily fit a new...

The 2018 Toronto Raptors NBA Draft Primer

SBN: Raptors HQ (Daniel Reynolds) — We’re looking at the where and when of the NBA Draft, and also figuring out what the Raptors can do. This is it, today’s the day, it’s finally time for the 2018 NBA Draft . Yes, we made it. But wait, actually, hold that thought. Toronto didn’t actually make anything. The Raptors , as has been noted again and again and again, do not have a first or even second round pick. (We can blame ...

Did the Raptors make a mistake letting Jerry Stackhouse go?

SBN: Raptors HQ (Mikey Rouleau) — The Raptors had Stackhouse working in the G League with aspirations of becoming a head coach. Now he’s gone. How did it all happen? Two days before it was reported that former Raptors assistant Nick Nurse would become the team’s new head coach, Jerry Stackhouse walked away from the organization. The promising young coach, then the G League Raptors 905’s bench boss, joined J.B....
