The Toronto Raptors appear to be on the verge of making tweaks to their logo and jerseys, according to a new report.

Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net — an authority on news about this sort of thing — is reporting that the Raptors will make changes to their look starting next season, whenever that may be. Creamer says the Raptors will get rid of their current primary uniforms and make small changes to their logo.
This is the jersey design they will reportedly no longer use:
New jerseys and logos are typically unveiled in the summer, during the NBA’s offseason. This year, however, the offseason won’t take place until October.
Just what the new uniforms and logo will look like is still unknown; however, Creamer speculated that the Raptors may revert to their alternate jerseys, replacing the word “North” with “Raptors” or “Toronto.”
The Raptors have worn three variations of the same alternate uniform, with the word “North” appearing in a chevron design on the front of the jersey. That uniform was unveiled first in black in 2017, followed by white and red versions in 2018. The red alternates were notably worn by the Raptors during their championship-clinching game against the Golden State Warriors last season.
