Raptors Looking To Add A D-League Affiliate For Next Season

Time Warner Cable is reporting the Rochester RazorSharks basketball team is in talks with the Toronto Raptors about becoming their NBA Developmental League affiliate.

The RazorSharks were champions of the Premier Basketball League last season.

While Rochester is relatively close, if the Raptors truly want to become known as Canada’s team, it would make more sense for the Raptors to form a D-League team in London, Hamilton or Oshawa. It would result in the D-League affiliate being closer to Toronto and it would help drum up interest in the GTA.
