While they didn’t mirror the high standards set by their NBA peers, the Raptors 905 had another successful campaign in 2018-19. They qualified for the playoffs, posted a winning record, and enjoyed the services of the G League MVP in Chris Boucher. Now it’s time to get excited for a new season in Mississauga, though, as the 2019-20 schedule arrives.
The 905 open their season on Friday, November 8 as they take on the Grand Rapids Drive. Their first matchup against the Long Island Nets, the team that ousted them in the playoffs last season, comes on December 5 — which is also Mandela Night and a game that’ll be played at Scotiabank Arena.
For those interested in the ups and downs of two-way players, the schedules of the Raptors and the 905 only conflict for two games — February 25 against Fort Wayne and March 24 against Capital City. At those times, either the 905 will be down some high-end talent, or the Raptors will be a shade shallower. Right now, we’re unsure of who those two-way players will be — it’s one of the outcomes of training camp in the fall — as Jordan Loyd chose to take his talents to Spain.
The longest home stands for the 905 will be four games, happening twice: once starting February 12 and one starting March 19 to end the regular season. They’ll once again play in the Atlantic Division, alongside the Delaware Blue Coats, Long Island Nets, Maine Red Claws, and Westchester Knicks.
