Despite missing the playoffs the last four years, the Toronto Raptors will be the NBA’s most surprising team in the 2012-13 season.

Newcomers Jonas Valanciunas, Kyle Lowry, Terrence Ross and Landry Fields will team up with an already promising young core, led by DeMar DeRozan and Andrea Bargnani, to carry Toronto to their first postseason appearance since the 2007-08 season.

Despite making big moves this offseason, many of them went unnoticed by casual fans. Jonas Valanciunas is a terrific talent out of Lithuania, while Lowry is a top-15 point guard in the game and improves every season.

Finally, a full season with Dwane Casey will benefit the young Raptors players, who had to learn on the fly in last year’s shortened campaign.
