Synopsis: In my latest at Sportsnet, I wrote my annual Raptors free agency and salary cap primer to get you ready for the offseason.
I’ve been writing this annual Toronto Raptors primer so long that you could have weaved in a “last time the Maple Leafs did this in the postseason” joke last week. Some alternate context for this, the 12th edition: This is now the third collective bargaining agreement the series has spanned.
Because the NBA and NBPA reached a new CBA that will come into effect on July 1, 2023, there’s a little more than usual to cover today. And it was already a lot.
As always, this piece is meant to be bookmarked and referred back to as you play through offseason scenarios. We’ll refer back to it plenty, too, as we play with different options the Raptors have available to them in the coming weeks.
