Every Toronto Raptors player to follow on Instagram

Oct 21 2019, 3:08 pm

The summer of 2019 was the shortest offseason on record for the Toronto Raptors. It was also the most thrilling champagne-soaked three-month-long party in franchise history.

After parading the Larry O’Brien trophy around the globe, the Raps begin their title defence on Tuesday when they kick off the 2019-20 season against the New Orleans Pelicans.

While the Raptors players didn’t get much down time during the offseason, judging by their social feeds, they made the most of their time off this summer.

To get you ready for a new season, here’s your guide to following every Raptors player on Instagram.

The longest tenured member of the Raptors put pen to paper and signed a $31 million contract extension to keep him in Toronto through the 2020-21 season.

On Instagram, Lowry keeps a low profile, and he posts mostly about his kids, but like everybody on this list, North Philly’s finest took time to get a photo with the Larry O’B.

Pascal Siakam also signed a new contract extension, securing a 4-year, $130 million max extension to keep him in a Raptors uniform through the 2023-24 season.

After the departure of Kawhi Leonard, all eyes will be focused on Siakam and whether he can take the next step towards becoming an All-NBA Team player.

OG Anunoby’s 2019-20 season came to a crashing halt because of a ruptured appendix which sidelined him from the playoffs. He’s back and healthy and ready to contribute to the Raptors this year.

Anunoby has been relatively dormant on Instagram, though, and hasn’t posted since 2018.
