Last Year’s Record: 33-49
Key Losses: Joey Graham, Nathan Jawai, Jason Kapono, Shawn Marion, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Anthony Parker, Roko Ukic, Jake Voskuhl
Key Additions: Marco Belinelli, DeMar DeRozan, Reggie Evans, Jarrett Jack, Amir Johnson, Rasho Nesterovic, Hedo Turkoglu, Sonny Weems, Antoine Wright

A combination of the new depth combined with a few players becoming free agents next summer are the teams biggest strengths.

They just need their core group of players - Andrea Bargnani, Chris Bosh, Jose Calderon and Hedo Turkoglu - to stay healthy while successfully merging in all of the new faces into Jay Triano’s system. If that happens look for the team to have a successful season and have a chance to cause some noise in the playoffs.

I think that the Raptors will do very well this season
