All Toronto Raptors draft picks have played an important role in building the team, particularly given the franchise's relative newness. The Raptors joined the NBA in 1995 as the league's first and so far only Canadian franchise and are seeking their first NBA championship.
While the Raptors have had some of the best players in the NBA come through their system, like Vince Carter, Kawhi Leonard, and Kyle Lowry, many of them came via trade and free agency. However, players like DeMar DeRozan and Chris Bosh were Raptors draft picks to make multiple NBA All-Star teams.
