Toronto at Cleveland
The Raptors have a new coach in Dwane Casey, who has been forced to work quickly to establish an identity and culture during a condensed training camp.
Two teams deep in rebuilding projects and void of superstars meet to open the season in Cleveland. Expectations are minimal for the Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors in Year 2 following the departures of LeBron James and Chris Bosh, respectively. The Cavaliers last season narrowly avoided becoming the first team in NBA history to have the best and worst records in consecutive seasons when they topped the Minnesota Timberwolves by only two victories. All of that misery was spun into two of the top four picks in the draft, while the Raptors begin this season without a rookie on the roster for the first time in team history.
The Raptors selected Lithaunian center Jonan Valanciunas fifth overall, knowing full well he intended to remain overseas for another season. The Cavaliers contemplated taking Valanciunas at No. 4, but ultimately settled on forward Tristan Thompson.
