DeRozan says "everybody looks at me and Kyle's relationship, but me and Kyle's relationship wouldn't have started if it hadn't been for Rudy".

As a Raptors fan, it's disappointing, I don't mind the team going with black-gold as an alternate colour scheme but once again, the team does not have a uniform with the name of their hometown on it. "We all want to win, and if you're looking into the future, you're going to trip over the present".

Lowry was close to former teammate DeMar DeRozan, who was traded to the San Antonio Spurs in order to acquire Kawhi Leonard.

Green, a nine-season National Basketball Association veteran, has played with Leonard in San Antonio since 2011.

The architect of the offensive overhaul that saw Toronto dramatically increase its 3-point shooting last season, Nurse suggested there may be more to come this season thanks to the addition of Leonard and Green.

Limited to just nine games in the 2017-18 season by a leg injury, Leonard said he's fully healthy and ready to open training camp Tuesday in Burnaby, B.C.

The Raptors hope to sign Leonard to a contract extension, instead of losing him to another team next summer in free agency.

"I look at it as a day to day process", Leonard said.

Kawhi Leonard was introduced, and as Eric Koreen outlined, there are tea leaves everywhere.

"I'm here to do my job", Lowry said. "I'm coming to a great city that loves basketball". "I mean there's more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself". I just can't give you the whole spiel.

The normally stoic forward poked fun at himself at his first media appearance as a Raptor, quipping, "I'm a fun guy".
