Two years from winning their first NBA championship, the Raptors missed the playoffs for the first time since 2013.
While it is easy to label this season a disappointment, it is important to point out the circumstances that Toronto faced this season. COVID-19 restrictions left the Raptors without a home and forced them to play in Tampa, Florida for the entire season.
Toronto would go on to lose thirteen of its next fourteen games.
Despite a likely appearance in the lottery, there is still a foundation in place led by VanVleet, Siakam, Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr.
Toronto also moved up in the draft lottery, now having the No. 4 pick.
The big question this offseason will center around free agent Kyle Lowry, Trent (who is a restricted free agent) and what the future holds for team president Masai Ujiri, who is in the last year of his contract.
