Welcome to Air Canada Centre

Basketball is finally here, and not those charity all-star games either. Real basketball.
The preseason opens in Toronto where the Raptors are again in rebuilding mode, so don’t expect them to be a factor in the Atlantic Division.

They have a new coach, former Dallas assistant Dwane Casey and their No. 1 draft pick, Jonas Valanciunas, has decided to stay overseas.

*Paul Pierce is out with a sore right heel
*Sasha Pavlovic is out with a sore left wrist
*Jamal Sampson is not on the trip for personal reasons
