After the Toronto Raptors hold training camp at Laval University in Quebec City, QC, they are set for four preseason tune-ups to gear up for their title defence in the 2019-20 NBA season.

The Raptors will travel to Tokyo, Japan, where they will take on James Harden, Russell Westbrook and the new-look Houston Rockets twice as part of NBA Japan Games 2019 Presented by Rakuten.

Once the team returns back from Japan, they'll go head-to-head against a young team with promising upside potential in Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine's Chicago Bulls. The contest will be the first Raptors game played at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto since Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

To close out the preseason, the Raptors will get an early look at another revamped roster as it takes on Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan and the Brooklyn Nets at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, home of the G League's Long Island Nets.
