Raptors 905 TicketsThe Raptors 905 is a Minor League affiliate of the Toronto Raptors. This Canadian team serves as an important developmental program for the NBA. Although most players on the roster are NBA free agents that anyone can sign, players who are under contract with the Toronto Raptors can be sent down or recalled by the team in accordance with G League rules. Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment purchased the franchise in 2015 and named it for the Greater Toronto area code, which includes the city of Mississauga. After a year of growing pains, the Raptors 905 had their best season in 2016–2017. The team won the division title and then beat the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in a three-game final to clinch the championship. Head Coach Jerry Stackhouse won Coach of the Year honors. The Raptors returned to the championship series in 2018 but lost to the Austin Spurs in two games. Get your Raptors 905 tickets at StubHub.
