Brazil: SG Leandro Barbosa
While names like Bruno Caboclo and Lucas Nogueira have come from Brazil to Toronto, Barbosa’s 1.5-season stint with the Raptors was more impressive than what either of them put on film. While he wasn’t as good as he was in Phoenix, Barbosa averaged 12.8 points per game with Toronto.
Cameroon: PF Pascal Siakam
Siakam is one of the best players in franchise history, as his name is plastered all over the record books. Siakam’s legend will only continue to grow, as Toronto figures to make him the focal point of Darko Rajakovic’s offensive during his debut season.
Pascal Siakam is an all-time great Toronto Raptors player.
Canada: PG Cory Joseph
Dalano Banton may have been the first player the Raptors ever drafted from Canada, but his two-year stint paled in comparison to what Joseph put on display. After averaging 8.9 points per game in two seasons as a backup point guard, Joseph built the foundation for a strong career.
Congo: C Serge Ibaka
Ibaka was an underrated part of the Raptors’ title run and success before that season, as his shooting, shot-blocking, and physical edge gave Toronto a degree of nastiness that helped the squad withstand some very tough challenges in the postseason. The love he feels for Toronto is reciprocated.
