Heard second hand from someone who has spoken to the MLSE about Drake and part of the reason for the partnership. Seems like he was brought on board at least in part to try and lure his friend Kevin Durant to Toronto. The Raptors cannot speak to Durant under the CBA but they can use Drake to try and get him here.
What do you think? Could be B.S. but I wouldn't put it past Leiweke to go all out like this.
