RAPTORS: What is something that has stood out for the Raptors this preseason? There seems to be a lot of lovable characters on the team now. Which player is not so lovable and needs a bit of a rebrand?

NBA: Simmons is begrudgingly returning to the Sixers and Kyrie ain’t touching a court until he’s fully vax’d. Are these just summer stories or are they gonna impact the season? What team is a wildcard or is a “hard to read” team?

Quickish Questions and more! With Jordan Foisy and Cathryn Naiker.
