As the Raptors summer league team assembles here in the desert for the next two weeks, the big question is what direction new Raptors general manager and president Masai Ujiri will take with this year’s roster.

That direction should begin to become clearer over the next week as the league moratorium ends today and the backload of signings and trades over the past few weeks become official.

Ujiri hasn’t tipped his hand yet as to where he wants to take this roster this year and whatever transpires or doesn’t transpire in Vegas is expected to have much of an impact on that decision.

While at least four Raptors for next year’s roster will play here in Vegas including Jonas Valanciunas, Terrence Ross, Quincy Acy and the recently signed point guard Julyan Stone, it’s going to be the call on whether Ujiri can turn some of his surplus wings into something else that will likely set the tone for the season.
