The Toronto Raptors are in a new era. Leading the way as their franchise cornerstone is 2021-22 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes. Barnes’ co-stars aren’t too shabby either, with promising point guard Immanuel Quickley and Canadian hero RJ Barrett rounding out the Raptors’ young core. Rounding out the bunch is a mixed bag talent, ranging from vets like Kelly Olynyk, Chris Boucher, Bruce Brown, and Jakob Poeltl, to other younger players like Gradey Dick, Ochai Agbaji, and Gary Trent Jr.

Last season, the Toronto Raptors dealt with a myriad of injuries to their core players and ended their year with a mediocre 25-57 record. Say what you want about the Raptors possibly making a playoff push at full strength, but there’s no denying this roster is severely lacking in quality depth to truly see that vision come to be once again.

The Toronto Raptors need point guard depth

One key point of improvement to address this offseason is finding competent point guard depth. The team began the year with Dennis Schroder leading the fray at PG, but after he was traded to shed salary, it left Toronto with a hole at the guard position. Veteran Bruce Brown largely would run the backup point guard role, to subpar levels of success. 

The Raptors' front office will do whatever it takes to retain their young point guard of the future in Immanuel Quickley, but once that dust settles, the team must prioritize striking a deal with veteran point guards across the league. With that being said, these three players are more than worthy candidates to fill that role currently missing on the Raptors roster.
