Leonard jokes at Raptors media day: 'I'm a fun guy'

The Kawhi Leonard era in Toronto began in earnest on Monday morning, as the All-Star forward threw on his new uniform and met with the media as part of the Raptors' media day. "I can't give you a spiel about me".

Leonard addressed the rumors that he was unhappy about being in Toronto and that he wanted to go to Los Angeles, saying that he just wanted to win.

A free agent next summer, Leonard said he arrived in Toronto "with an open mind", but wasn't ready to talk about what that means long-term. You know I want to do great things, so I'm going to make sure I put my all effort on the court each and every night.

"If you look at the future, you are going to trip on the present".

Leonard is expected to spend a year in Toronto before landing a spot at one of his goal teams, which was recently reported to include the Clippers or Lakers, if not the Raptors.

Lowry was close to former teammate DeMar DeRozan, who was traded to the San Antonio Spurs in order to acquire Kawhi Leonard.

I get they want to represent all of Canada, but isn't that what the red/white uniform is for?

Raptors president Masai Ujiri swung the blockbuster deal on July 18, sending DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a draft pick to San Antonio for Leonard and Danny Green.

"We could", Nurse said. Lowry, who had also not spoken publicly since the trade, disputed the notion he was miffed at Ujiri's move.

"He's a fun guy (when) you get to know him", Green said. "An opportunity like this, you've got to take advantage of it".
