Toronto Raptors Lock Up Patrick McCaw as Roster Takes Shape
The Toronto Raptors will more than likely not be an outstanding three-point shooting team next season.
But what they will be is a strong defensive unit which will boast virtually an entire roster that will be long and gritty on the defensive side of the ball. While they won’t have a certain star coming back next year, they may have just gotten back the lucky charm needed to assure their repeat.
The Toronto Raptors have re-signed Patrick McCaw.

That’s right, the Toronto Raptors have re-signed Patrick McCaw to a two year deal. The money value has not been released by the team at this point.
At this point, the vision for the Raptors is clear.
With a number of their aging veterans set to enter their walk years, the Raptors are going to begin to set the building blocks for the next generation. Building around Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby, the Raptors are taking low-risk flyers on a multitude of young players with projectable tools, hoping that one or two of them pan out and reach their potential.
The Raptors are expected to have up to $90-million in cap space following next season, a sum that will most definitely be affected by the approaching extension Siakam is due. Nevertheless, the Raptors are adding youth without mortgaging their financial future.
In Masai we trust.
