It is clear that Scottie Barnes is now the face of the Toronto Raptors.
The third year playing has taken the reigns after Toronto traded both O.G. Anunoby and Pascal Siakam.
Barnes is having an All-Star type season and has quickly become a fan favourite in Toronto.
He has the the No. 1 selling jersey in Canada, topping LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Siakam.
Raptors rookie Gradey Dick also cracked the top 15 in jersey sales just making No. 15. After a slow start to his season, Dick is starting to see more playing time in the Raptors rebuild.
He’s finds himself behind Damian Lillard and LaMelo Ball:

The Raptors are the top-selling team in Canada in merchandise which is no surprise. They are followed by
the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors. The Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and San Antonio Spurs round out the rest of the top 10 in merchandise sales in the country.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the lone Canadian in the top 15 at No. 11.
Barnes being atop of the list is no surprise. He is the leader of the Raptors clubhouse and he will be the guy the team builds around from this point on.
Dick is also going to be in the Raptors long-term plans. The sharpshooter is finally starting to show some confidence on the court and is knocking down shots.
Barnes and Dick are the duo for the Raptors that could be leading jersey sales in Canada for a long time.
