Kawhi Leonard

Masai Ujiri very confident Raptors will be able to retain Kawhi Leonard

Boasting a 42-16 record heading into their final game before the all-star break, the Toronto Raptors are likely feeling good about where they stand.

Ujiri conveyed confidence the Raptors have done a good job of convincing Kawhi Leonard to stick around longer than just this one season while appearing on Prime Time Sports Wednesday evening.

Part of this confidence from Ujiri stems from the controversial “load management” the Raptors have allowed Leonard, who has only appeared in 43 of a possible 58 games this season.

“This is [Raptors assistant and director of sports science] Alex McKechnie along with other people who have helped us with this whole process.

Leonard wasn’t the only topic Ujiri discussed with Prime Time Sports hosts Bob McCown and Richard Deitsch Wednesday.

“I think he fits in the role we’re bringing him in and I think the most important aspect is we have a guy with unique experience coming to play as the third point guard.”
