It is the beginning of a pivotal offseason for the Toronto Raptors, and there is a lot of work to be done in order to equip this team for a return to playoff supremacy. The young core and talent, led by the likes of Fred VanVleet, are there, and a return home to Toronto with a few important roster additions could immediately book this organization’s ticket to the Eastern Conference playoffs.

This group needs more than some patchwork players, and a big-name star is what this team needs in order to compete with the best of the NBA.
