TORONTO (AP) — After more than 18 months in exile because of COVID-19 border restrictions, returning home to ‘The North’ has been a journey of discovery for the Toronto Raptors.

In search of an authentic Toronto experience, forward Pascal Siakam took his first ride on public transit when visiting a local park. Guard Gary Trent Jr., acquired from Portland while the Raptors were playing in Tampa last season, started checking out the restaurant scene in his new home. “I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed living here until I came back,” guard Fred VanVleet said Monday at Raptors media day.
