After naming Hip-hop superstar "Drake" as their Ambassador, it is clear to see that the Toronto Raptors are looking for a new image to turn their fortunes around. With a core group that includes Demar DeRozan and Terrance Ross, the youthful team is not far off from major success. And with these five free agents, their fortune may turn around sooner than expected.

Rodney Stuckey would be a solid addition to the Toronto Raptors' backcourt at a lower price than other free agents on the market.

Eric Bledsoe is an explosive point guard who is coming into his own right now. He is currently averaging 17.6 points and 5.7 assists per game. If he is paired with Demar DeRozan in the backcourt of Toronto, it could be something very special.

The Toronto Raptors lack a dominant inside presence, and Greg Monroe could be just that for the upstart team. His ability to rebound and protect the rim would make the Raptors a legitimate contender in the East in a few seasons.

Luol Deng will be one of the most underrated free agents on the market, and the Toronto Raptors could take advantage of that. Deng is a great defender because of his footwork and length. He would add a strong defensive dimension to the Raptors' lineup.

A scoring post presence would open up the floor for the Toronto Raptors and make them difficult to guard. If Toronto can land Pau Gasol, their stock in the East would rise infinitely. Gasol is unhappy in Los Angeles and could become the emotional leader of the young group due to his championship experience.
