Default Raptors To Play Exhibition Against CSKA Moscow

Looks like the Euroleague champs are coming to the ACC this fall to play against the Raps in an exhibition. Will definitely be a good test for our new team to see how they fair against Europe's best.

No dates or anything but I hope for Toronto’s sake it’s near the end of the pre-season because if the Raptors don’t bring their ‘A’ game, they’ll get their heads handed to them.

These games make me nervous. I don't want them to get embarrassed again. Nothing to gain, pride to lose.

Nothing to lose, if you ask me. They need to tune up against some real competition, and CSKA is one of the top European clubs these days.

Looks like I was wrong, I thought NBA teams at the pre-season, weren't going to play against Euroleague top team ( I listened that from some Spanish commentators).

I like it. And it would be more nice if there was a way to make Messina stay in Toronto.

Relax, CSKA was weakened this summer and moreover they will have been traveling for about 20 hours and will have to play by NBA rules.If Raptors still cannot win comfortably they'd better come play to the Euroleague.

There are more teams involved according to ESPN.

Reigning Euroleague champion CSKA Moscow, Spanish powerhouse FC Barcelona and Lithuania's Lietuvos Rytas will face the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, Toronto Raptors and, possibly, the Los Angeles Clippers at undetermined NBA venues.
Beats watching Lebron sitting on the bench.
