Default Re: preview feature on the Raptors...Val the key?

Everyone else has either topped out (Gay, Lowry, Derozan, Amir) or are, IMO, low ceiling guys (Ross, Acy). There needs to be more to the "core" to develop a long-term winner and that's why I want this upcoming season tanked. Tanked hard and not half-way. Leiweke has said some things about rebuilding and "being bad" but I don't see Ujiri putting any such plan in place. We'll see.

Completely agreed.
