October 16, 2018 11:37 PM Eight games every Raptors fan should circle on their calendar

Wednesday vs. Cleveland: The season opener will give fans a first glimpse at these new-look Raptors, plus the Cavaliers without LeBron James. Does the rivalry persist without the King on the court?

October 16, 2018 11:29 PM Raptors’ Bench Mob on verge of getting whacked

“Last year it was like having two separate teams; it was like football almost where you had five in five out. So I think it’ll be a bit more meshed.” But the Bench Mob, RIP, was beloved, even if it turns out to be a one-year wonder. It played more quickly as a group than the first unit did, Siakam’s ability to run the floor was eye-opening and VanVleet 5

ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA—Ethiopia’s new Cabinet is now a record 50 per cent female, including the country’s first woman defence minister, after lawmakers on Tuesday unanimously approved the nominations put forward by reformist Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. “Our women ministers will disprove the old adage that women can’t lead,” Abiy said while presenting his choices 6

THOMPSON, MAN.—A Winnipeg media outlet says it’s learned that a northern Manitoba heart patient died during a 10-hour Greyhound bus trip to see a Winnipeg doctor after being denied a flight to get to the checkup.

October 16, 2018 3:41 AM Brewers take NLCS lead with third playoff shutout in L.A

Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson returned to the lineup after a roster addition to his family, following the birth of his first child.

October 16, 2018 2:00 AM Suspect in custody after trespassing turned to gunfight in rural northern Alberta

Police say he drove on and eventually followed another vehicle carrying a couple and a four-year-old child into a rural yard, allegedly pointed his gun at the male driver and demanded his vehicle.

Wright is seen as a viable part of the team’s future but not having long-term money tied up leaves the luxury-tax-paying franchise with some measure of flexibility next summer.
