Looking Ahead: 2016 NBA Draft


We know where we’re drafting from a position standpoint, now who to draft or what do to with our picks. Marquese Chriss or Deyonta Davis? Jakob Poeltl or Skal Labissiere? Or do we package it away in a trade? Lots to talk about and things to consider. Follow @raptorsrepublicFollow @DocNaismith

Our record is now 40-19. Phil Jackson once said if you win 40 games before losing 20, you are considered a contender in the NBA. Does this ring true for our beloved Toronto Raptors? Follow @raptorsrepublicFollow @DocNaismith
