Ujiri will not merely let the talented small forward leave so easily, however, and detailed his plans to retain Leonard’s services on The Woj Pod.
“We are who we are,” Ujiri said of Raptors, who were founded in 1995. “I think you want to be genuine, you want to be real. You know, this is who we are.
We might not be the best ones in weather, but we might be the best ones in many other places. “The diversity, the city, the uniqueness of a place like [Toronto], fans, the atmosphere. “I think those things are so unique, it’s beginning to show everywhere.”
Raptors have at least made it to the conference semi-finals the last three seasons but lost to Cleveland Cavaliers on each occasion.
