Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I previewed the Raptors 905 season and some key storylines to check in on throughout the year.
Raptors 905 begin their fifth season Friday, which head coach Jama Mahlalela helped us preview a little bit on the Raptors Reasonablist podcast this week.
It’s another exciting year for the 905, as they project to be a playoff team, barring injuries and call-ups. That might seem like a low bar, but a fourth straight playoff appearance with one player’s worth of continuity year-to-year is a tall task. The parent club Raptors and 905 general manager Chad Sanders have done well to keep the pipeline well-stocked, even without exclusive NBA rights to most of the roster.
Over the course of the 905 season, we’ll occasionally dive deeper into a player’s story or their developmental progress. To set up the season, let’s take a quicker, higher-level look at some of the storylines to keep an eye on when you fire up your Twitch, Facebook, NBA TV, Raptors app or wherever else G League games are inconsistently streaming this year.
