Toronto Raptors Are Built To Go Big

The Toronto Raptors do have the option to go with a typical small ball lineup. However, a more interesting and potentially mind-boggling option for Raptors opponents would be to go bigger and play the same way. Lowry, DeRozan, Carroll, Patterson and Scola. Now that’s a lineup with size, smarts, rebounding and no player an opponent can cheat off on defense.

Grading the Toronto Raptors' Bismack Biyombo pickup

The Toronto Raptors have been very busy this offseason in regards to free agency.  A team that desperately needed defense, the Raptors have gone out and attempted to fix the problem by bringing in some quality defenders at all three areas, from the guards, to the wings, to the bigs.  While their offense may take a step backward, their defense will almost certainly be much improved...

Raptors Build for Both Present and Future

In some ways, last year's Toronto Raptors team finished in the most awkward possible spot in the standings. With a 49-33 record, the Raptors were above .500 in the inferior Eastern Conference—but not that far above. Their first-round sweep at the hands of the Washington Wizards was a borderline-embarrassing look at having all of a team's poor defensive habits—the Raptors were...

DeMarre Carroll joins the Toronto Raptors

I won’t lie…I didn’t see this one coming.  The Toronto Raptors signed SF DeMarre Carroll on the first day of free agency to a four year contract worth $60 million.  With so much emphasis being put on the Raptors need for a PF, SF became somewhat of an afterthought.  Carroll is a great 3-and-D player, and even though the Raptors likely overpaid, they’re getting a good,...
