New Raps lineup to debut Fri?

Barring another trade, the Toronto Raptors' starting lineup of the future should be Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas. It will be a completely new look, as Lowry has been working as a reserve, Gay was playing for a different team, and Bargs and Valanciunas have been sidelined for an extended period due to injuries.

However, it sounds like that lineup may coalesce sooner than later. According to Sportsnet.ca's Holly MacKenzie, Bargnani and Valanciunas took part in Friday's morning shoot-around, though coach Dwane Casey said he wasn't sure if they would return to action this evening against the Los Angeles Clippers. There is also a chance that Gay could make his debut with the Raps on Friday if all players in the three-team swap pass their physicals in time.
