Raptors are 3rd internationally-diverse NBA team

The Toronto Raptors are 3rd internationally-diverse NBA team in the last five NBA seasons.
3. Toronto Raptors
Int’l players in last five years: 23/86
International Diversity Index: 26.74%
Winning Percentage: .453
A team based in Canada should be open to international players and the Toronto Raptors comes in as the third-most popular destination for international NBA players.

With 86 roster spots in the last five years, 23 (26.74%) were filled by foreign-born players like Jose Calderon of Spain and Andrea Bargnani of Italy. Adding to their international flavor, the Raps have drafted 4 foreign-born players with their 9 draft picks over the last five drafts.

During this summer, the Raptors picked up coveted free-agent Hedo Türkoğlu of Turkey and traded for Marco Belinelli of Italy.
