Toronto Raptors Unveil Summer League Preliminary Round Schedule
The high of a championship season is still in the air, yet the new season is already right around the corner.
In fact, basketball is soon to start over once again.
Talk about a quick turn-around.
With free agency set to kick off on Sunday, NBA Summer League will get going at the onset of July and the NBA champion Toronto Raptors have officially unveiled their preliminary round schedule. Kicking things off in a Finals rematch of sorts against the Golden State Warriors, the Raptors will play their first game on July 6.

The Raptors will then take on the team they dispatched in the Eastern Conference Finals in the Milwaukee Bucks, after which they will get a first-hand look at Canadian rookie sensation RJ Barrett when Toronto takes on the New York Knicks on July 9. The champs will close out the first round with a matchup against the Indiana Pacers.
Despite missing the entirety of the postseason, OG Anunoby will not participate in Summer League.
The Raptors roster will include second round selection Dewan Hernandez, undrafted free agents Sagaba Konate and Canadian rookie Lindell Wigginton. Chris Boucher, Malcolm Miller, and Jordan Loyd will all play for the Raptors Summer League team as well.
