The Toronto Raptors are on the verge of opening their 18th season in the NBA. What will their rotation look like when they face the Pacers on Halloween?
Head coach Dwane Casey addressed some questions about his rotation for this season prior to Monday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He feels his rotation will be going nine deep on most nights. He did however not rule out expanding to 10 based on game situations and match-ups.
That rotation will be very flexible depending on who the Raptors will be playing on a given night. This is a way for the Raptors to take advantage of their improved depth. That said, it seems we have a good idea of who the two main units for the Raptors will be at this point.
So here is my take on what the Raptors rotation should look like.
It is in line with the plan Casey has, based on his various comments over the preseason. Let’s examine the rotation by running through the positions and breaking it down that way.
Also, I'll try to give some suggestions on minutes in some cases, which might be helpful if you’re yet to have your fantasy draft, or even if you have to make a last-minute move.
