Drake Weighs In On DeMar DeRozan & Kawhi Leonard Trade

By HHL JT

Early this morning, the San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors swapped Kawhi Leonard and DeMar DeRozan (and some other things.)

It's an odd trade in that both of the players involved are extremely unhappy with the deal. Leonard says he has no desire to play up in Canada, and DeRozan feels betrayed by the franchise he's been with since the beginning and thought he would be a part of for years to come.

Raptors team ambassador Drake tried to make everyone feel better by directing an Instagram post at the two All-Stars.


To my brother @demar_derozan I want to say 10 million thank you’s on behalf of YOUR city. You are a fixture in Toronto forever and you gave everything you had. Through your leadership we had the most exciting years in franchise history. I am grateful to have witnessed your combination of skill, persistence, and loyalty from the same seats every night. Thank you for being an incredible captain and an even better friend. To Kawhi...we look forward to a this new chapter and we welcome you to the most intense and supportive city in NBA basketball!!! You have always been a poised clinical warrior and I can’t wait to see how Toronto inspires your fight. Let’s Go Raptors.
