On the court, there remain many questions about the Raptors as they continue a three-year rebuilding process under new coach Dwane Casey.

However, if the terms reported for the new collective bargaining agreement all pan out, the Raptors — with a payroll of about $50 million committed to 10 players — will have some wiggle room regardless of what the final number is.

Whether they are able to pick up a bargain-priced veteran who is released by his current team is a possibility they will explore but general manager Bryan Colangelo may want to hold on to the financial “flexibility” and see how the start of the season shakes out.

The bolded is the first time frame placed on the Raptors rebuild.

Does anyone know if this is Doug Smith connecting dots of 2 year deals with a third year team option or has Colangelo said at some point we are on a three year plan?
