He spent several weeks of the summer practising with the second unit, plus newcomer Danny Green, who arrived in Toronto a couple of weeks ago after the Raptors acquired him along with star forward Kawhi Leonard in the off-season.

One player who might take more 3-pointers is holdover point guard and four-time All-Star Kyle Lowry, DeRozan's close friend.

Kyle Lowry reportedly avoided calls and texts from the team during the offseason, according to TSN.

Seeing this report isn't something to toss aside as irrelevant but considering the circumstances and how Lowry addressed the situation shouldn't raise any concerns. It was well-documented that he wanted a move to his native Los Angeles, however, he would eventually get traded to the Raptors where he will play for at least the 2018/19 season before his contract expires.

Kavanaugh angrily denies assault allegation after Ford testimony
It has become less clear that Republican leaders will be able to hold Republican senators behind President Donald Trump's nominee. In her opening statement on Thursday, Ford said, "Both Brett and Mark were drunkenly laughing during the attack".

The Raptors went from a team in serious turmoil to back in contention in the Eastern Conference and if the team has success, Lowry shouldn't have anything to complain about and he hasn't voiced any either (that we know of).

How the athletic Powell fits into new head coach Nick Nurse's plans will be one of the key storylines of the Raptors' early season. "But at the end of the day, I'm coming to work and I've done that every year since I've been here". "For me, my job is to be ready to go, and I'm ready to go and play". That's been my sentiment: "Trying to win a gold ball here".

Even after he located the reporters, Leonard was characteristically brief but managed to make his feelings clear, starting with his reaction to the July 18 trade that ended a sometimes fractious seven-year relationship with the Spurs and sent him to Toronto.

"He made a decision, you know?" said Lowry when asked about whether he still trusts Masai Ujiri. "So I'm excited to be able to learn from him and have him as a teammate". He will show up and be professional despite what the rumours suggest.
