Toronto Raptors Expectations

The Raptors will have a lot of new guys coming in this year. They traded for Kyle Lowry, signed Landry Fields and John Lucas, drafted Terrence Ross and Quincy Acy, and will now have Valancuinas from 2011. The smart thing to do would be to trade Calderon, which they've been trying. Paying $10 million for a backup point guard would be outragous. They could get a nice piece in return for him. Their starting lineup will probably be

Lowry PG

Derozan SG

Fields SF

Bargnani PF (I think Bargnani should move to the 4, he doesn't have what you want in a center, and Valancuinas needs to play)

Valancuinas C

Does this team make the playoffs? Or are they too young? I see them battling for the 8 spot with the Wizards and Bucks. Whether or not, I think they are obviously moving in the right direction.

I love their off season

I love their off season moves, except for the fact that they over paid Fields. I also think their recent signing of Dominic McGuire is very underrated. This guy in a veteran that will bring some tough minded leadership, last year for the Warriors he guarded the opponents best players no matter what the position they played. I think they could compete for the 8th seed, though won't make the playoffs.

This team is a wildcard to me. If Lowry can maintain his all star caliber play and Jonas come in an make an immediate impact like expected, Toronto will be challenging Washington and milwaukee for the 8th seed. As a raptors fan I'm excited for this upcoming season as we have a young and exciting team

I think the Raptors lacked toughness for the last couple of years and I think Lowry Acy, and McGuire. I still have alot of questions about Val so I'm not jumping the gun or drafting him in fantasy.

I'm a huge fan of what the Raptors are doing, but they're not there yet.

You can't have too high of expectations with their youth. What I want to see is Lowry to become a leader, and Derozan to stop shooting.
