In Episode 1244, Sean Woodley is joined by Samson Folk (Raptors Republic) to preview the season of Toronto Raptors big man Precious Achiuwa and talk about what makes him such an intriguing and important developmental piece for the Raps this season. Off the top, they chat about the late-season progress Achiuwa made last year, particularly in the three-point shooting department, and whether that small sample success is something Achiuwa can carry over to Year 2 with the team. They also examine the big question regarding Precious: should he start over Gary Trent Jr.? Next, they dig into what makes Precious such an excellent defender, and why he could be the key to open up a more diverse and adaptive defense scheme for Nick Nurse, who of course stuck largely with a hyper-aggressive game plan for much of 2021-22. To wrap up, they examine the areas on offense in which Achiuwa will have to improve in order to really hit his high end potential and make Toronto's best, longest lineups work. To wrap, Samson gives his read on where the Raptors slot into this year's Eastern Conference and what a successful season for the Raptors might look like. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In Episode 1224, Sean Woodley goes solo to react to the signing of Juancho Hernangomez aka Bo Cruz to power rank the 20 players the Raptors are now projected to bring to training camp in September. Off the top, Sean ranks the six core players on the team: Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet, Scottie Barnes, OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa and Gary Trent Jr. Next, Sean digs into the surefire bench rotation pieces that should round out a very sound nine-man rotation: Chris Boucher, Otto Porter Jr. and Thad Young. Will that trio be the key to Nick Nurse being a little more conservative with the minutes totals for his star players? Next, Sean assesses where the guys on the fringes of the rotation -- Khem Birch, Justin Champagnie, Dalano Banton and Malachi Flynn -- sit in the franchise hierarchy, before rounding out the show with a look at the guys who will likely spend a good chunk of time with Raptors 905 in the G-League, and sizing up the battle for what will likely be one roster spot between four players.

Off the top, Sean digs into a great question about the players the Raptors should be expecting leaps from next season, and in particular two guys whose leaps are going to be essential if the team wants to continue its upward trajectory: Scottie Barnes, and Precious Achiuwa. Next, Sean tackles a question about a particularly weird possible lineup combo that could get some major run next season, and spins off into a discussion of all the delightful strange lineups Toronto's versatile and complimentary nine-man rotation should make possible. Lastly, Sean talks about whether there are any alternative team names he'd like to see the Raptors adopt if they were to abandon the dinosaur theme, jersey designs he'd like to see from the next round of Raps City Edition uniforms, and which type of hat most suits each member of the Raptors' starting five.

Could he be the center the Raptors have purportedly being poking around for? Or is he a little too far below the level of Deandre Ayton and Rudy Gobert to be worth the investment? Are the Raptors better off just rolling with Precious Achiuwa as their primary big man? Next, Sean talks about how bullish he is on the 2022-23 Raptors' ability to be a regular season wins machine as well as how the minutes are likely to be allocated across all five positions.

In Episode 1213, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob to recap the Toronto Raptors' 97-77 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in their first taste of Las Vegas Summer League action on Saturday. Off the top, they share their biggest takeaways following Christian Koloko's debut with the team, in which he scored 12 points while also collecting three steals and three blocks. His offense has a long way to come along, but his mobility was a real stand-out. Next, they discuss the Raptors signing DJ Wilson to a standard NBA deal, and examine how his inclusion could change things in the battle for the Raptors; final roster spot. Could Wilson nudge out someone like Justin Champagnie or Svi Mykhailiuk? Or is he at long odds to make a team that now has four centers on the roster. Lastly, they about Dalano Banton's big effort in the LVSL opener, and try to determine which back end roster player stands the best chance of nudging into the regular rotation this coming season as the 10th man behind Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, Gary Trent Jr., Scottie Barnes, Precious Achiuwa, Otto Porter Jr., Thad Young and Chris Boucher.

In Episode 1212, Sean Woodley goes solo to answer a bucket full of a mailbag questions about Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant and the Toronto Raptors' reported pursuit if the two-time Finals MVP. Off the top, Sean digs into the potential concerns about Durant looking to ask out of Toronto before the 4 years on his contract are up, and whether a verbal commitment from KD to stick around for the life of his contract would change the calculus on what the Raptors should be willing to part with. Next, Sean answers a question about the emotional toll that may or not be exacted on the players rumoured to be sent out for Kevin Durant in a deal, as well as the potential for the Raptors to be invovled in the KD sweepstakes as a third team that lands Deandre Ayton from the Phoenix Suns -- something that becomes a little less likely as the Indiana Pacers reported Ayton interest ratchets up. Lastly, Sean discusses who the 5th starter would be in the event Precious Achiuwa, OG anunoby and Gary Trent Jr. are the price of landing KD, whether the Raptors would load manage the 34-year-old, and what his favourite preparations of Kraft Dinner are.

In Episode 1210, Sean Woodley is joined by William Lou (The Raptors Show, Sportsnet 590 The Fan) to talk about the case for the Toronto Raptors ponying up and going all-in to acquire Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, even if it costs Scottie Barnes or Pascal Siakam. Off the top, they dig into how far they'd go in negotiations to land KD, with the one inescapable fact of it all being that... it's Kevin Durant. Is it worth giving up Scottie Barnes and all the potential he has? Or is the sure thing that is Durant worth the gamble -- especially if he can moved later in his contract for at least some form of return if things don't work out in the early days of his contract. Next, Sean and Will talk about the idea of including Precious Achiuwa in an OG Anunoby, Gary Trent Jr. and draft picks package, and whether it would be a dealbreaker to trade three valuable pieces for one. Counterpoint: it's Kevin Durant. Lastly, Sean picks Will's brain on the Raptors' off-season moves, and why keeping Thad Young and Chris Boucher while adding Otto Porter Jr. sets the Raptors up to hit the ground running the event the team they have today is the one they roll out on opening night.

In Episode 1195, Sean Woodley goes solo for another off-season Wednesday mailbag episode to answer a handful of interesting Toronto Raptors-related questions. Off the top, Sean examines what the Raptors might be able to do to grease the wheels of their half court offense next season, from unlocking Precious Achiuwa as a vertical role threat, to simply running a little more pick-and-roll, and banking on some internal developement both from Toronto's playmakers and shooters. Next, Sean digs into the question of who will be the #2 player in usage on next year's team behind Pascal Siakam. Will Scottie Barnes be turned loose as a scorer and creator? Or will Fred VanVleet, Gary Trent Jr. or OG Anunoby end up being the team's second-most used offensive player? Plus, Sean offers some quick thoughts on Raptors 905 losing head coach Patrick Mutumbo to the Phoenix Suns. Lastly, Sean talks about whether the Raptors could find themselves in any sort of salary cap peril in the coming years, and why he typically feels pretty comfortable with Bobby Webster and Masai Ujiri's ability to wriggle out of cap trouble. And lastly, will Justin Champagnie be a rotation player next year? Sean sure thinks so. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Off the top, Sean digs into whether the two off days will benefit the Raptors, or if the Sixers might stand to gain more of an advantage as it gives Joel Embiid another day to rest his injured thumb. Next, Sean discusses which player or adjustment has most altered the series, with the decision to dare James Harden to score against single coverage probably serving as the biggest move by either coach in the series so far to date. Next, Sean discusses Fred VanVleet, whether he should be rushed back in this series of if he's better preserved for a potential second round date with the Miami Heat -- a team that he figures to have much more success against than he's having in a diminished state against the 76ers. Plus, do the Raptors need to find him a true backup next season in the interest of keeping him fresh into the post-season? To close the show, Sean discusses whether Pascal Siakam is playoff-proof as a player, as well as whether Precious Achiuwa is the best defender on either team in this series.

In Episode 1163, Sean Woodley is joined by Rohan Nadkarni (SI.com, Open Floor) to talk about what we've learned about the Toronto Raptors over the course of the 2021-22 season, and in their three playoff losses to the Philadelphia 76ers. Off the top, Sean picks Rohan's brain on the Raptors' team building concept and whether it seems like a viable way for the Raptors to play going forward. Do they need to find a center for matchups like the one with Joel Embiid? Is that even a problem for the team to really worry about considering where they sit on their win curve right now? And is Precious Achiuwa perhaps the answer to the Raptors center issues staring them directly in the face? Next, they dig into Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet, the heat they've taken for their playoff performances so far against the Sixers, and why they still are very obviously key ingredients to this Raptors team next year and beyond. Lastly, they talk about the hypothetical scenario in which one of Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell becomes available once the Utah Jazz flame out. Could Gobert alter the way the Raptors play defense while also elevating the half court offense? And is Mitchell too porous a defender to really fit the Raptors system? All that, plus some thoughts on Kyle Lowry's Miami Heat heading into a likely date with the Sixers in the second round. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Following the New Orleans Pelicans' playoff berth, the Portland Trail Blazers lost a second lottery pick heading into the 2022 NBA Draft and the 2022 offseason “Great Reshaping” of the Blazers roster. Without that additional lottery pick, where do they go? Could a deal still be done for Jerami Grant? Could the Blazers cobble together enough with the 2025 Bucks 1st round pick, a young player and Eric Bledsoe's contract to get Grant or a player at least within range of him in contribution department? Interim GM Joe Cronin has said that they would evaluate the value of their own lottery pick after they know its standing versus what they could use it for on the open market to acquire a player for. Obviously Grant's name has been out there — but what about a player such as OG Anunoby shaking free in Toronto? Would a Top 6-7 lottery pick be enough to convince GM Masai Ujiri to let him go? Toronto has a core of Fred VanVleet, Gary Trent Jr, Scottie Barnes, and Pascal Siakam alongside Anunoby and Precious Achiuwa. However, Toronto has wanted to add traditional size to their roster. There were rumors around the Portland Trail Blazers and Jusuf Nurkic multiple times over the past year. With Anunoby another player represented by Klutch Sports, could there perhaps be an alliance brewing with the mega-agency?

In Episode 1162, Sean Woodley goes solo live from Scotiabank Arena moments after the Toronto Raptors lost a heartbreaker to Joel Embiid's Philadelphia 76ers in Game 3 of their first round playoff series. Off the top, Sean digs into the inevitabiltiy that comes with a star player as great as Embiid, the breakdown on the final defensive possession, and how that miscue undercut what was a really excellent defensive performance by the Raptors from start to finish, as they forced 22 turnovers and dared Embiid to beat them with tough shot making -- and he did. Sean also addresses how the offense dried up in the second half as the Sixers rolled out some heavy zone. Next, Sean runs through his notes on OG Anunoby, who was incredible, Precious Achiuwa, who had the game of his life before missing a pair of critical late-game free throws that could have sealed the win, Pascal Siakam, whose excellent defense gave way to a poor offensive showing and 0 second half points, and Fred VanVleet, who looks very, very tired. Please stop being dumb about Pascal Siakam. Please learn from very recent history, my god. Lastly, Sean fields some future-thinking questions from viewers of the live stream, and reflects on how the loss in Game 3, while heartbreaking, is a far cry from some of the other recent heartbreaks, and is actually kind of a necessary blow for a young team to suffer early in its trajectory.

I also laugh at the people who tried to convince me that a team with Fred Vanvleet and 7 Precious Achiuwa's could win vs Joel Embiid and James Harden. Also, how Luka Doncic is playing as good as LeBron James and Kevin Durant were at 22 and 23 years old, and how it sucks that injuries and poor roster construction by Dallas have sapped him of 2 deep playoff runs, and a budding rivalry with the Phoenix Suns.

In Episode 1161, Sean Woodley goes solo to break down the Toronto Raptors' 112-97 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 2 of their first round NBA playoff series on Monday night. Off the top, Sean digs into how the Raptors' shorthandedness in Game 2 bled into all the other areas of the game, leaving them unable to keep pace for 48 minutes despite a promising start and a torrid first quarter from Fred VanVleet. Next, Sean examines some of the positives from the game, including the turnovers they forced Joel Embiid to commit, the super-efficient scoring of OG Anunoby, the defensive promise displayed by Precious Achiuwa, and the work Chris Boucher did in 30 inspired minutes off the bench. Lastly, Sean takes a big picture view of where this team sits with the series headed back to Toronto with health very much not on its side, and compares this year's version of the team to a recent edition of the Toronto Blue Jays in the hopes of offering some perspective amid the bad vibes of a tough start to the series.

Will Sixers fans get their wish and see Paul Reed fill in when Embiid sits? Or will DeAndre Jordan open up a chance for the Raptors to blitz the Sixers when their star needs a breather. Next, Devon and Keith chat with Sean about Pascal Siakam and his evolution into being the pretty clear second-best player in this series ahead of James Harden, as well as which secondary guys on the Raptors will most dictate their success.

Off the top, they talk about James Harden and how his play could be the biggest swing factor in the series. Does he even have a chance of being the second-best player in the series ahead of Pascal Siakam? Or is Siakam clearly in another class right now? If Harden is cooked, this could be a tough series for Philly. Next, they talk about three-point shooting, which seems to hold outsized importance for a Raptors team with a whole lot of variability in that department. In particular, can the bench options of Thad Young, Precious Achiuwa and Chris Boucher connect on their long range shots? And should Raptors fans even feel totally confident in their "knock down" guys like Gary Trent Jr., Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby? Lastly, they talk about how Achiuwa could be the single most important swing player in the series, why he should close games, and whether the Raptors should reorient their starting five to prevent themselves from bleeding points early in games?

In Episode 1148, Sean Woodley goes solo to answer questions from the listeners about your Toronto Raptors. Off the top, Sean examines the many skill improvements we've seen from members of the team over the course of the season to determine which has been the most surprising. Is it Pascal Siakam's leveled-up playmaking? Scottie Barnes' defensive growth? Precious Achiuwa's three-point shooting? Or Chris Boucher's overall transformation as a player? Next, Sean talks about Fred VanVleet's bum knee, whether he'll be able to hold up through the post-season, and why the Raptors might be a little more equipped to withstand a limited VanVleet now than they were at the start of the season. To close things out, Sean talks about the Raptors playoff rotation, his All-Annoying Starting Five, and much more! Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In Episode 1147, Sean Woodley is joined by Vivek Jacob (Raptors.com) to talk all about a thrilling, angst-filled 115-112 Toronto Raptors overtime win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night. Off the top, they make note of how poorly officiated the game was before moving on to more fun things, like Pascal Siakam scoring 40 points while pulling in 13 rebounds and picking up three steals and two blocks to power the Raptors to a win on a night where they were certainly not at their best. Is he one of the five best players in the Eastern Conference right now? Plus, Sean and Vivek chat about which of the top four teams in the Eastern Conference the Raptors would have the best chance of upsetting in round one. Are the Miami Heat's recent struggles the sign of some serious vulnerability? Is the Raptors' track record against Joel Embiid enough to make you comfortable with a series against the Philadelphia 76ers? And should the Raptors want to avoid the Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks at all costs? Lastly, Sean and Vivek hand out a pair of Dudes of the Game for the last two Toronto contests, one to Precious Achiuwa, and another to Thad Young for his oustanding work to close Monday night's game.

In Episode 1144, Sean Woodley is joined by Katie Heindl (DIME) to answer some mailbag questions on a great many Toronto Raptors-related topics. Off the top, they address Scottie Barnes and whether or not he'll level up into being the Raptors' second option on a nightly basis next season, and why that probably won't come to pass -- at least not in 2022-23. Next, they tackle a question regarding Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, and who it would hurt more to beat in a hypothetical post-season series. Plus, who is the LEAST Canadian Raptors player of all time? And are there any parallels to be drawn between the growth curve of Precious Achiuwa and Pascal Siakam in the early years of his career? Lastly, they talk about the state of the chair situation at Scotiabank Arena, and brainstorm some ways in which the Raptors can infuse King Cake Baby energy into their regular collection of mascots.
