As the next season of the NBA continues to draw nearer, many fans are starting to ask where will the Toronto Raptors be playing this year?

Currently, ongoing border restrictions between the U.S. and Canada have greatly reduced the Raptors' chances of hosting home games in the 6ix.  

Now a bunch of cities in the States are eyeing Canada's only team.

At the moment, multiple contenders are competing to host the Raptors in the 2020-2021 season, including Kansas City, Kentucky, and Tampa Bay.

According to Sportsnet, the Flordia city has pulled ahead over the other two.

However, Kansas City has not given up on the hope of turning the team into #WeTheMidwest.

The city's mayor continues to try to persuade the Raptors to head down south, and his tweets are thirsty AF. 

Is there still hope for the Raptors to play in Toronto? Canadian health officials revealed on Friday that they're looking into the possibility, but it's still too soon to tell.
