After winning their first NBA title, Toronto now focuses on convincing Kawhi Leonard to stay.

NBA

Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors! For the first time in franchise history, they won the NBA Finals defeating the Golden State Warriors in six games.

Once the high of winning it all fades a little, the realization is that the Raptors have Kawhi Leonard likely to opt out of his player option making him an unrestricted free agent. Sporting News takes an in-depth look at what faces Toronto in the offseason.

Here is a look at the eight potential free agents (listed in alphabetical order by last name) that are on Toronto’s roster. Ages listed are how old they will be when next season begins. The Raptors’ free agent list was found at Spotrac.

1

Marc Gasol (C) - Player option for $25,595,700, Age: 34

Traded to the Raptors in February, Gasol played 24.9 minutes a contest in 19 regular season games for Toronto. That number increased to 30.6, in the postseason, where he averaged 9.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, and three assists. While he is unlikely to match the player option salary as a free agent, he could potentially look for a multi-year deal.

2

Danny Green (SG) - Unrestricted, Age: 32

Green finished second, in the NBA in 2018-19, connecting on 45.5 percent of his three-point tries. While his numbers dipped a bit in the postseason, his 10.3 scoring average in the regular season was his highest since 2014-15.
