raptors 905

Is this what the new Raptors D-League logo looks like?

The Raptors are set to announce details related to their brand new D-League affiliate late today, but the logo might already have leaked prior to the press conference. SportsLogos.net posted this logo yesterday after apparently seeing it appear on the Hershey Centre website (it's since been pulled down).

The Raptors 905 will be the 19th team (and Canada's first) in the NBA Development League and should help the Raptors better nurture young talent such as Bruno Caboclo and Lucas Nogueira. The Raptors also become the 9th NBA team to own their own development team.

Stay tuned for the official announcement and unveiling.

Update: The Raptors have now officially announced the team, its logo, and its host venue.

Are you excited for the 905s? Do you like the logo? Let us know in the comments.
