Lowry has been paired with Leonard in training camp drills this week, and he sounded keen on the … Continue reading Raptors’ Lowry on Kawhi: ‘I think we’re gonna be on the same page’
The Toronto Raptors have filled out their training camp roster by signing Eric Moreland to a partially guaranteed one-year deal, according to a report from Michael Scotto of The Athletic. It would seem likely once again that Moreland will be in camp on an Exhibit 10 deal, one that would allow him to compete for a roster spot out of camp and, failing that, be converted to a two-way player or earn a $50,000 bonus for agreeing to join Raptors 905 of the G League if he’s waived. At this point, Moreland has more than proven himself at the G … Continue reading NEWS Report: Raptors bringing Eric Moreland into training camp

Rose credentialed himself by saying he was the one who told the world the situation with the Spurs was fractured back in January.
Rose says if Leonard does end up playing in the rumored city, Los Angeles, it will be for the Clippers.
This is on par with what Spurs reporter Michael C. Wright said in January that Leonard prefers the Clippers because he does not want to play “second fiddle” to LeBron.
