The Toronto Raptors have seen a lot of player turnover in the past few years, almost completely resetting their roster. Chris Boucher is the only player remaining from the team's 2019 title, and third-year player Scottie Barnes is the second-longest tenured player on the team.

As the organization looks ahead to free agency this summer, many of their options are familiar ones, as former Raptors are spread all across the league. It would not be surprising to see Toronto sign a former player to a contract. Which ones are most likely to come back around?

Raptors are not re-signing Pascal Siakam or OG Anunoby

Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby are both free agents this summer and could technically be re-signed by the team, but neither are returning to a rebuilding situation in Toronto after the organization traded them away this past season. In fact, it would be quite surprising if either does anything other than re-sign with the teams that traded for them, the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks respectively.

Whether or not the Toronto Raptors bring back a former player, however, largely comes down to what path the team wants to take next season. Continue moving on from veterans to prioritize adding youth and draft picks? There are a couple of former Raptors to look at. Add proven veterans to make a run at the bottom of the playoff bracket? A lot more alumni come into focus.

Let's look at five players the Raptors could bring back to Toronto for a second stint and explain why the team could sign each of them in free agency.
