Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Delon Wright could get some minutes at small forward this season. He has the backup PG role on lock and is versatile enough to play three different positions for the Raptors. Wright said he's prepared for his new role and added that he spent the offseason working out with Dwyane Wade, Russell Westbrook and DeMar DeRozan. A role with minutes in the 20s is within his reach if he has a strong camp, so Wright is a name to watch over the next few weeks.

Delon Wright "is ready to step in behind" Kyle Lowry according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN. The Raptors traded away Cory Joseph to the Pacers in exchange for C.J. Miles on Sunday, an indication that they are confident in Wright as the backup. The Raptors use a lot of two-PG lineups and Wright can play off the ball beside Lowry, so he could potentially be looking at minutes in the 20s. He averaged 5.6 points, 2.1 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 treys in 16.5 minutes per game last season, so he could have some sneaky value in a larger role.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he went with Fred VanVleet behind Cory Joseph instead of Delon Wright in Game 4 vs. Cleveland because he was looking for more shooting. "Well, I thought we needed shooting and, no disrespect to Delon — he’s going to be an excellent player in this league — but I thought we needed the threat and the possibility of a three-point shot they way they were double-teaming DeMar [DeRozan]," Casey said. Wright was a nice surprise for the Raptors in 2016-17 after returning from shoulder surgery in February, but he only played 16.5 minutes per game with averages of 5.6 points, 2.1 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.4 treys. He should be ready to take on a larger role next season, and he could be very relevant in fantasy leagues if Kyle Lowry leaves the Raptors in free agency.
