The Raptors have some specific roster needs at the moment, but the most basic one to address is: the actual number of players on the roster. As per league mandate, all teams have to carry a minimum of 14 players on their roster. This is worth keeping in mind as the Raptors have been running around with 13 players, plus their two players on two-way contracts, which do not count towards the minimum. They’re granted a window of two weeks to solve that problem.

To remedy the situation, the Raptors are reportedly set to sign forward Freddie Gillespie from the G League’s Memphis Hustle squad.
