Coach Dwane Casey's team finished two spots out of a playoff position in the Eastern Conference in 2012-13, so the post-season would appear to be in reach, but there are plenty of question marks.

And if the season starts badly, will Toronto consider tanking for a better chance at landing Canadian super-prospect Andrew Wiggins in the draft?
