Report: Raptors have discussed playing in New Jersey
With the Toronto Raptors' home arena for next season still undetermined due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the team is inquiring about the availability of the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
The Raptors have held discussions with arena operators about playing their home games at the venue next season, a source told The New York Daily News' Stefan Bondy.
Toronto's other conversations have involved playing in Tampa Bay or Nashville, Bondy adds. Potentially serving as a tenant in another team's arena is another possibility.
Of those options, the NBA reportedly favors the Raptors playing in Newark due to the close proximity to the club's Atlantic Division opponents.
To help combat the spread of COVID-19, travelers entering Canada are currently subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine period upon arrival.
