The 2017-18 Toronto Raptors season was the 23rd season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

On June 28th, 2017, the Raptors promoted assistant general manager Bobby Webster to general manager, while Masai Ujiri remained team president.[1] Webster's promotion came over a month after their previous general manager, Jeff Weltman, left the Raptors to become the President of Basketball Operations for the Orlando Magic, with the Raptors acquiring a second-round pick in 2018 in order for them to release Weltman early. However they would later trade that selection, their first round pick, and DeMarre Carroll to the Brooklyn Nets for the rights to Justin Hamilton.

On April 6th, 2018, the Raptors set new franchise records for total wins in a season with 57, home wins in a season with 33, and clinched the 1st seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in franchise history. They would end the season with a record 59 wins and 34 home wins. They would end up winning their 4th division title in 5 years.

In the playoffs, the Raptors faced the eighth seeded Washington Wizards in the first round, winning in six games. They advanced to the semifinals where they faced the Cleveland Cavaliers once again, the team that had eliminated them in the past two NBA playoffs. Just like last season, the Raptors were swept in four games by the Cavaliers. They have now lost 10 straight playoff games to the Cavaliers. This sweep marked the 1st time the top seeded conference team was swept in a playoff series since 2015, where the Atlanta Hawks were also swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Conference Finals. The Raptors also became the first top seeded conference team since 2013 to have not advanced to the Conference Finals, and the first in NBA history to get swept in the Semifinals.

Following yet another disappointing playoff appearance, head coach Dwane Casey was fired on May 11th, 2018. [2]
