I find it pretty awesome that @Harrison Barnes picks the @raptors as his team on @NBA2K. Just a little bit of info I got from @mashable

Updated @BBallInsiders Toronto Raptors for Will Cherry and Jordan Hamilton's 25k each guaranteed basketballinsiders.com/toronto-raptor…

Eric Pincus

Both WIll Cherry and Jordan Hamilton have just $25k guarantees apiece on their contracts with the Raptors

Jon Santiago

Raptors effect. MT @Brian Mahoney: When Gay & DeRozan are out there, other 3 guys don't seem very aggressive looking for their own shot.

Ryan Wolstat

True. Raptors fans already taking note of exactly what Wiggins is saying. RT @BurntoutLoL: @Ryan Wolstat 2 'Verys'

Dan McCarney

The time he and KG almost got into a fight, firmly establishing himself as a Raptors legend. youtube.com/watch?v=pz_gOH…

Scott Cacciola

The Knicks have announced their preseason schedule. Open Oct. 8 against Celtics in Hartford. Will face Raptors in Montreal on Oct. 24.

Marc Berman

As previously announced, #Knicks will face Raptors in Montreal. Garden home games vs. Bucks, Washington and Toronto in preseason.

Ryan Wolstat

One more note on that racist e-mail from other day, had to laugh at: “Raptors fans are ban waggon jerks who do not represent “My Canada."

Eric Pincus

Addded Jordan Hamilton to the @BBallInsiders Toronto Raptors Team Salary basketballinsiders.com/toronto-raptor…

Michael Grange

Even with a new $32-million practice facility the Raptors Masai Ujiri seemed bummed this week: ow.ly/ADl7o

Ryan Wolstat

ICYMI: Masai talks boldly about future of Raptors, but is sad to see Leiweke go + more on new practice facility: torontosun.com/2014/08/22/rap…

Ryan Wolstat

Nobody should be worried about DeRozan being more fatigued for season. Won't play big minutes for USA and has more help than ever w/ Raptors

Doug Smith

USAB names Raptors DeRozan to final 12-man team for World Cup

Ryan Wolstat

"I’m not worried about whoever the next person is, the pressure is on them," Ujiri/Leiweke say Raptors will be fine: torontosun.com/2014/08/22/rap…

Ryan Wolstat

“You can hire Wayne Gretzky and at the end of the day, the Raptors are going to be just fine. By the way, Wayne Gretzky likes the Raptors."

Ryan Wolstat

“It’s six times the size of what they have today.” - Tim Leiweke on new Raptors practice facility.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors facility has lots of room to expand. Ujiri says visited 12 similar sites around NBA and everybody said regret was not enough space

Payal Doshi

It’s only fitting my Friday evening involves #FBF to the @raptors vs @Oklahoma City Thunder on @NBATVCanada. #NBAWithdrawl

Ryan Wolstat

The inside of Raptors facility is what matters and it looks really nice. Barely anyone will see the outside.

Ryan Wolstat

Where do Raptors go from here, how do they keep momentum going and ward off negatives of Leiweke leaving? Masai, emphatically, "by winning!"

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors practice facility http://t.co/aP4wvUd0pN

Ryan Wolstat

Leiweke said bringing in Ujiri one of his biggest accomplishments and Raptors in good hands. Ujiri will miss the synergy and camaraderie tho

Ryan Wolstat

Masai Ujiri was adamant that despite loss of Leiweke Raptors are on the rise and nothing changes, board has bought in

Ryan Wolstat

And one last time, Tim Leiweke was good for the Raptors but the work isn’t done and will the new guy stay on mission? torontosun.com/2014/08/21/lei…

#raptors blog: Time will tell but Leiweke's MLSE legacy should be a good one on.thestar.com/1q06U5P

Ryan Wolstat

And one more time, Leiweke was good for the Raptors and will be hard to replace: torontosun.com/2014/08/21/lei…

Josh Lewenberg

In less than 14 months on the job, Leiweke helped get Raptors/Leafs/TFC on right track but leaves long before goals/promises are met

Ryan Wolstat

Focus was on making Raptors a somebody in NBA for first time ever and progress was being made on that front.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors surely take hit in Leiweke leaving. they were a priority. Ujiri was pursued with everything available and then left to do his job.

Ryan Wolstat

? Is, why did Leiweke deny it for a day? To get council to approve Raptors facility?

Doug Smith

#raptors blog: One good ice bucket drenching deserves another, right? on.thestar.com/1nedBNo

Josh Lewenberg

For Raptors, if DeMar's improved passing/ball handling chops translate from USA camp to the season they'll be more than pleased w his summer

Chuck Swirsky

Currently on @nbatv my play by play with the Raptors against the Cavs when LeBron went off for 56 in Toronto...

Ryan Wolstat

Sure, many NBA teams have facilities way out there, so won't be big deal for newcomers... but existing Raptors likely peeved at least a bit

Ryan Wolstat

So there it is. Expect more details on Raptors CNE facility, dare I say it... imminently

Ryan Wolstat

First Bruno, now Leiweke... Raptors championship time
