In a year unlike any other, the Raptors, who will be based in Tampa, FL to begin the upcoming season, will travel to Charlotte, NC to take on the Charlotte Hornets, who have undergone a transformative offseason highlighted by the additions of No. 3 overall pick LaMelo Ball and free-agent acquisition Gordon Hayward.

To limit travel, the preseason schedules of most teams feature two meetings in the same location and the Raptors' schedule is no different, as they will meet the Hornets twice in three days.

Upon their return to Tampa, the Raptors will close out their preseason schedule with a meeting against last year's Eastern Conference Champion in the Miami Heat, who bring back the majority of their championship core and have made offseason additions in Precious Achiuwa (draft), Avery Bradley (free agency) and Moe Harkless (free agency).

The meeting with Miami will be Toronto's first home game in its new temporary home of Amalie Arena.

Below, find the full preseason schedule with dates, times and locations.
