The Raptors won the title last season, and are in contention to repeat. If they are able to do that, we may be on the verge of The most unlikely dynasty in NBA history. It’s not an easy path, but there is a way. Here’s how: 

The Raptors have put themselves in A situation where they can have maximum cap space flexibility for the next few seasons. With the expiring contracts this season of Fred Vanvleet Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka, The Raptors could go out and sign a big free agent. All the 2020free agency class is notably week, the Raptors could go out and sign a tier-one player to a short term deal, and still have enough space to sign Giannis Antetokounmpo in the 2021 free agency. Signing Giannis has been rumored time and time again for the Raptors as Massiah Ujuri has been known to be a master negotiator. If the Raptors can sign Fred Vanvleet back on a deal worth about 15 million per season for the next four seasons, and bring back one of Marc Gasol or Serge Ibaka, they can still have enough room to go out and sign Andre Drummond if he chooses not to opt into his player option with the Cleveland Cavaliers. It would be very hard for this plan to go without tampering, but if it is Rumored enough, Drummond may want to consider opting out of his player option and test the waters. Especially if the Cavs land the number one overall pick, they will have the opportunity to draft James Wiseman, which might lead Drummond to opt-out of his option. You would barely have to risk any tap space, and then once Kyle Lowry’s contract expires, you can have enough room to sign Giannis and not have to pay the luxury tax.
