Get out the road map, Raps

BILL HARRIS -- Toronto Sun

, Last Updated: 6:57 AM ET

If Matt Bonner doesn't re-sign with the Raptors, ticket sales may be a tad slower than anticipated for their upcoming pre-season game in Manchester, N.H.

Bonner, of course, is a New Hampshire native. But it's too late to reschedule anything now, since the Raptors yesterday released their dates for the eye surgery otherwise known as the NBA pre-season.

The Raptors' pre-season schedule will be "highlighted" by a home game against Israel's Maccabi Tel Aviv and a game against the Portland Trail Blazers at MTS Centre in Winnipeg.

The full NBA regular-season schedule will be released next Monday.
