It appears the Toronto Raptors will not enter full rebuild mode this summer.

The Raptors have no intention of moving veterans Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, or Marc Gasol before the 2019-20 season begins, sources told TSN's Josh Lewenberg.

Speculation regarding the trio's future in Toronto mounted following Kawhi Leonard's departure from the NBA champions over the weekend. Lowry, Ibaka, and Gasol are all entering the final season of their contracts, an added appeal for contending teams interested in their veteran services.

Toronto would have until February's trade deadline to recoup value for them.

Lowry, who turns 34 in March, is the longest-tenured Raptors player at seven seasons and counting. He is the franchise's all-time leader in 3-point field goals (1,223) and steals (746).

In the wake of Leonard's exit, Toronto has focused on defensive-minded younger wing players, signing free agents Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson, while re-signing Patrick McCaw.
