Which Teams Are Toronto Raptors Competing Against for NBA Playoffs Return?
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been five years since the Toronto Raptors last made the NBA playoffs.

During that time, the Eastern Conference has seen teams like the Boston Celtics rise and others like the Detroit Pistons fall.

Such is the nature of the NBA.

However, this offseason has had more movement than any other in recent memory. Entire rosters have been eradicated in order to rebuild, and other teams have added pieces to push for a playoff run.

We have a good idea of what the top of the Eastern Conference standings will look like next season, with the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls and Brooklyn Nets topping the list.

But it’s last season's bottom feeders that we’re interested in.

Of the teams that missed the playoffs last season in the Eastern Conference, the Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons appear ready for a rise in the standings.

Time will tell how these teams will fare, but one thing is for certain: The Toronto Raptors will be competing with each of them for a playoff berth.
