The Toronto Raptors have been very busy this offseason, as they have had to accept the departure of Kyle Lowry, figure out how to retain their own free agents, bring back Masai Ujiri, use the No. 4 pick in the 2021 draft and get this squad in a position to compete for the playoffs.
Miraculously, they have managed to check all of those boxes.
The re-signing of Gary Trent Jr. and Khem Birch brought back two starters, the addition of Scottie Barnes have Toronto yet another impact young player for the future, and the Lowry trade brought back a potential starter for the future in Precious Achiuwa.
Perhaps the most important accomplishment Toronto pulled off was retaining Ujiri, who will be a fixture in the front office for years to come.
Unfortunately, the Raptors will have to make some tough decisions over the course of the season. Not every player currently signed to the Raptors will be on the roster by the end of the season, especially if Toronto fizzles and starts to sell.
These 3 players could be ditched by the Toronto Raptors
The Raptors currently have five non-guaranteed players that are fighting for one of the final roster spots, meaning that it’s highly unlikely that we see all five of those players in Raptors red and black this season.
While these 3 players should be able to have solid seasons with Toronto, don’t expect them to stick with the club until the end of the 2021 campaign.
