Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic, I explained how a G League roster gets assembled, who makes up this year’s Raptors 905, the different player and rights types involved, and more.
Raptors 905 embark on the fourth season in franchise history as training camp begins Monday, and while it’s difficult to ever have firm expectations for a G League outfit, they enter in a pretty good place to continue on their success to date. No, a third straight finals appearance isn’t a fair bar, but they’ve managed to put together a loaded roster on paper that, barring call-ups or injury, should have them competing for the top of the Eastern Conference once again.
Let’s take a look at how the roster is assembled and the different contract and player types in the mix on a G League team.
