“It’s unclear yet,” Silver said Tuesday before the NBA Finals. “I know on behalf of Larry Tanenbaum, who’s the governor of the team and happens to be the chairman of the board of the NBA, he’s very hopeful that Ontario will open up and they’ll be able to have the team back in Toronto.”
The Raptors, who played the 2020-21 season in Tampa Bay, finished with a 27-45 record.
