Hopefully that is on course to change, but that doesn’t mean the jersey wouldn’t be welcome back.
According to a report by Uni Watch, a purple Raptors jersey was actually seen by their source who has broken jersey news before. You can check out the full list of what the source saw, but this little titbit might peak your attention:
