Raptors release possible new logo

The Toronto Raptors posted a possible new team logo Friday on their Facebook page.

The post links to a new video that includes the potential logo. The video follows up on the "We the North" branding campaign that was launched last season. At the end of the video the narrator says, "This is our shield," as a black and white basketball with a raptor claw is revealed.

National Post reporter Eric Koreen said in a tweet that this will indeed be the team's new logo. He reported a new colour scheme and uniform is planned for next season.

The logo Koreen confirmed has a slightly different colour scheme, featuring a red circle instead of a white circle surrounding the basketball and team name.

The Brooklyn Nets, who have a similar logo and colours, responded with a cheeky tweet directed at the Raptors.
