RAPTORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Can The Raptors Afford To Stay In The 2015 Draft?

Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri will expound on the merits of developing one’s own players and the importance of draft picks, however, what doesn’t get much discussion is the fact that the back-to-back Atlantic Division winners are all full up with players that aren’t quite ready for prime time. With Bruno Caboclo, Lucas Nogueira and potentially DeAndre Daniels already on the...

Toronto Raptors: Trade for Kenneth Faried?

It was a disappointing end to an up-and-down season for the Toronto Raptors.  The Raptors were swept in the first round of the NBA playoffs by the Washington Wizards, despite having home court advantage.  Even though a deep playoff run wasn’t expected by most, it was still a shocking end for a Raptors team that won 49 games. Big changes are likely for Toronto, from the coaching...

Could Tristan Thompson replace Amir Johnson?

It appears as if Amir Johnson's time with the Toronto Raptors is coming to an end. Despite his growth as a player with the Raptors, not to mention being a fan favorite, Johnson just doesn't seem to fit with the Raptors' desired direction. It won't be easy to replace him, but Sean Woodley of Raptors HQ has a few ideas, such as Kyle O'Quinn, Thomas Robinson or, in a dream scenario...

Now That the Toronto Raptors’ Flaws Have Been Exposed, Prepare for the “Summer of Masai”

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this for the Toronto Raptors. When Masai Ujiri traded Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings in late 2013 for what, at the time, seemed like spare parts, it was meant to signal the beginning of a full-scale rebuilding of the franchise. Instead, the move served as the catalyst behind 97 wins in two years. Yet, like a child conceived a decade after its...

Kyle Lowry isn't exactly endorsing coach Dwayne Casey

The Toronto Raptors are trying to recover from a stunningly swift exit from the playoffs, and point guard Kyle Lowry voiced some frustrations at his exit interview with the media Monday.

No ‘D’ Against D.C.: Raptors Can’t Stop Wizards

​ It seems so obvious in hindsight. Of course the Washington Wizards, owners of the league’s fifth-best defense, would sweep the Toronto Raptors, coming in with just the 25th-best defense in the league (on a per-possession basis), in the slow, brutal grind of playoff basketball. That wasn’t so obvious before the series, though, when predictions were split more or less...

Paul Pierce burns Raptors fans with epic troll job

Paul Pierce is enemy No. 1 right now among Toronto Raptors fans — and he’s loving every minute of it.

Wizards sweep listless Raptors

For a team that won 49 games during the regular season, the Toronto Raptors were nowhere to be found during their humiliating four-game series against the Washington Wizards. Washington defeated Toronto by 31 points on Sunday evening, completing a ridiculous four-game sweep that saw John Wall and company outscore the over-matched Raptors by a total of 56 points.

Wizards’ Beal has some choice words for Kyle Lowry

Well Wizards’ Bradley Beal really is about getting he best of Raptors’ Kyle Lowry isn’t he? In the recent Wizards-Raptors playoff game, Beal totally made Lowry’s defense look silly as he hit the paint and make the bucket. Of course that got Beal charged up and directly challenged Lowry by dropping f-bombs as he talked some major trash after the go-ahead bucket. http://cdn...
