NBA Offseason Buzz: Toronto Raptors
Chris Bosh continues to improve, but Hedo may not deliver as anticipated
No team made more moves or spent more money than the Raptors this summer.

Even the coaching staff has been restocked, with assistant Marc Iavaroni joining coach Jay Triano, whose interim tag was dropped. All this was meant to convince one old face, F/C Chris Bosh, to re-up next summer.
