Toronto Raptors 2017 Season Preview

Demar DeRozan is the face of the Raptors. Will he stick around after 2017?

Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Posted on 3/6/2016.

Lowry and DeRozan made things happen at guard last year by anchoring the roster. Lowry averaged 17.8 points per game at point guard. Demar DeRozan averaged 20.1 points per game in 2014-2015.

DeMarre Carroll averaged 12.6 points per game at small forward and center Jonas Valanciunas averaged 12 points per game. Toronto has 4 starters that posted 12 points per game last season and that makes them so deadly. My issue with the Rpators is that they no longer have a starting power forward.

I got the Raptors missing the playoffs. I think upgrades at both forward positions are necessary. Last year the Raptors were a lock to win their division. This season that is not the case.
