http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-...oronto-raptorsOverall grade and accomplishments ó A: What more can you ask of Ujiri, realistically? You can quibble with the yearly salaries doled out to Patterson and Vasquez, but it's not like either of those contracts will become poisonous or untradeable. Toronto brought the band back, didn't wildly overpay anybody and quietly became one of the deepest teams in the East.
CBSSports.com's Matt Moore ranked Lowry as the best free agent on the market outside of the four perennial All-Stars, and he chose the Raptors. Johnson and Williams are under-the-radar acquisitions who make the team more versatile and could help lessen the minutes load on Lowry and DeRozan. Toronto's development program has intriguing new students in Caboclo and Nogueira, and there should be more internal improvement.
The Cavs and Bulls are rightfully being talked about more than any other teams in the conference, but the Raptors have assembled a balanced roster that should be extremely competitive. They have solid scorers and defenders, and they have youth and experience. The sting of losing in the first round should have them more than motivated.
If the summer had gone sideways, fans could have been lamenting the front office's decision to push for the playoffs rather than tanking last year. Instead, they're looking forward to Toronto potentially going farther.
