Raptors need to recruit players based closer to home and this doesnt have to be just within Canada. ofcourse the quality of players has to be good. If Canada Basketball lead by NASH can establish a grassroots program producing decent ball players surely it will benefit the Raptors when recruiting FA or whatnot.
Raptors need to establish strong bases in Buffalo and/or Detroit/ Windsor region although the Pistons may not like that. Those American programs are already top notch and we can benefit from establishing bases in USA border towns etc. If we have hard time attracting NBA FA...we need to build from bottom within and up. these near home players would be easier (No guarantees) to attract than those "its to cold here" player etc.
Just bored today...
