Raptors Fined 25k For Drake KD Pitch

Looks like Drake had crossed the line with this pitch.

Drake's attempt to bring KD to Toronto went too far, according to the NBA at least, as they have decided to fine the Raptors organisation $25k for what is considered a "violation of the anti-tampering rules". I'm sure the organisation is not overly concerned about the fine and if Durant does end up coming to Toronto, a very possible scenario the more you think about it, I'm sure the 25k will be well worth it.

DeAndre Daniels To Play In Australia Next Season

As was expected, DeAndre Daniels will not be joining the Toronto Raptors next season. He will instead play for the Perth Wildcats in Australia, the same team that rookie Miami Heat forward James Ennis played for last season. He will be hoping for the same fate as Ennis, who will join the NBA club this year. Daniels seems to be taking this the right way, looking at this year as a "long vacation" as he hopefully will use the experience he gains in Australia to contribute to the Raptors next season. Daniels was the 37th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and seems to be the forgotten pick after the Raptors shocked the world with the Caboclo pick at 20, however Daniels was part of the UConn Huskies team that won the NCAA championship and in a draft class as deep as the 2014 class, a 37th pick can be a good contributor in the future.
