"A whirlwind, but it's been great," Ujiri told USA TODAY Sports of his seven months with the Raptors. "Everybody has been good. It's been to fun to try and get it going. We have so much work to do. We just had a good patch but it doesn't mean we're here.""The team is playing well. Everybody's encouraged," Ujiri said. "The NBA is a crazy league. One day, it's great. The next day, it's tough. I give coach credit. Congratulations to him for coach of the month. They players have been unbelievable.
"The players know, I have communicated to everybody where we stand. We want to be a good team, a winning team. If it's not that way, we have to figure out a way to rebuild the team or figure it out. Everybody's clear how this thing works.""We want to have an effect on the league as a basketball team," Ujiri said. "I don't believe in any of that B.S. that everybody says about Toronto. Players are going to want to play in Toronto, and we have to show that. I have to show that we can put a brand on the court to compete. We'll continue to try and do that.""Just get on the phone and call or listen to calls. All the general managers are unbelievable with this stuff," he said. "Until two people say, 'We have a deal,' ... one person cannot do it. Deals are tough to do, but it's our job and we try our best to help our organizations going forward."http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...trade/4346583/"Nothing against Rudy; he's a great player, but the guys we have fit in well, and that's been the momentum we needed going forward," Casey told USA TODAY Sports.
