Whether it's Leonard - or Irving and Butler, who reportedly want to team up in the East - the Nets have given themselves the ability to at least dream. "I want to say 10 million thank you's on behalf of YOUR city", Drake wrote. Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the deal has not been finalized.
"It's a big loss to the city", said Tom Best, the executive director of First Book Canada, one of the many charities in the city DeRozan associated himself with during his nine years with the Raptors.
The best news the Lakers got today was Chris Haynes' tweet that Kawhi Leonard has no desire to play in Toronto. Getting nearly the maximum allowable cash from the Spurs to help cover some of that cost should the Raptors remain deep into the tax and maybe even if they want to continue to add, though they're already projected well into the luxury tax as is with 13 players under contract.
The Spurs opened on the 2019 National Basketball Association championship odds at a solid +3000, but bold free agent moves by Western rivals, including the Los Angeles Lakers' signing of LeBron James, along with the departure of veteran leader Tony Parker for Charlotte via free agency, have taken their toll on the squad.

Despite never cracking the NBA, Thames has carved out a solid career as a pro. He is also the franchise leader in points (13,296), field goals made (4,716), free throws made (3,539) and games played (675). He was last there in 2015-16 with Fort Wayne, who still hold his rights. While this trade looks good now, it could easily deteriorate into another Isaiah Thomas situation once they have to conduct his physical.
This is likely nothing.
The Raptors actually saw their odds start to improve once they started being mentioned in the Leonard sweepstakes, as they were as high as 60/1 on July 2. Maybe Thames is just coming through for Crown League on Friday.
From there, who knows what Leonard may have been thinking. But there's another group of fans that don't like the way they treated DeRozan, and are skeptical if Leonard is even healthy or will stay beyond this year.
It's been an emotional day on Raptors social media.
