The Raptors are ‘fighting hard’ to play in Toronto in the 2020/21 season, per Marc Berman of the New York Post.
Travel into Canada has been banned due to the coronavirus pandemic, so the NBA is working towards finding a solution. It is also likely the Raptors will play their games in the United States.
“The Raptors are fighting hard to stay in Toronto for the 2020-21 season, league sources told The Post. Two weeks ago, The Athletic reported the possibility of the Raptors moving to Newark’s Prudential Center because of Canada’s strict quarantine rules stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Other possible landing spots include sharing Barclays Center with the Nets, or playing in Kansas City, Mo., Seattle or the Tampa Bay area.
According to sources, those sites, including Newark, are long shots, and the likelihood of remaining in Toronto still is very much on the table,” Berman reports.
