Nashville is reportedly one of the cities that can receive the Raptors during this season, according to Adam Vingan from The Athletic.
That picture doesn’t look good for the Raptors right now and it’s unlikely things will change for them in December.
“Nashville is one of those cities that is considered the temporary home of the NBA Toronto Raptors, according to a source with knowledge of the team’s plans.
“Raptors officials visited Nashville earlier this week, said the source. Bridgestone Arena, home to NHL Predators, regularly hosts SEC men’s basketball tournaments.
Toronto is looking for an option right now and this looks good. They have another alternative and the final say on this matter.
It remains to be seen what they will do before the 2020/21 NBA season begins. How good would the Raptors be in Louisville, Brooklyn or Kansas City spinners?
