Wow. I need to thank everyone for being right here. That is thrilling. It’s truly simply thrilling to see everyone once more face-to-face, proper? It’s been lengthy overdue that we’re throughout one another. I truly can’t wait till we’re throughout one another once more watching basketball.

To our employees, particularly particularly particularly the gamers, none of us are right here… This sport is concerning the gamers within the NBA. Our gamers from starting to now and shifting ahead have simply been superb for us. Clearly, what we’ve gone by way of right here the final eight years and I do know what the following journey is and what we hope it may be. We will’t say sufficient about these basketball gamers.
After which, followers, you media, everyone, what we’ve gone by way of the final couple of years, it’s actually been arduous. It’s been arduous on everyone. It’s so good to see everyone, put a face. I want I might inform everyone to take their masks off, however it wouldn’t be the fitting factor to do as a pacesetter right here. It’s so nice to see individuals smile somewhat bit and see that we will truly work together in some form of manner. Man, we will’t wait to get again to Toronto right here. We will’t wait to get again to enjoying. We will’t wait to get again to basketball, life, and I’m actually extraordinarily enthusiastic about this.
Earlier than we go into questions, perhaps, I need to speak about Kyle. It’s been actually robust for us to see an unbelievable participant like that go. I had actually in depth conversations with Kyle, and it was nice to spend so much of time with him within the final yr in Tampa. We knew this was coming. The path of our group was form of going youthful. Kyle nonetheless has his unbelievable targets. Kyle wished to be right here, too, if that was what we have been attempting to do. We noticed our group as form of being within the center floor somewhat bit and wished to go somewhat bit youthful so we will begin to develop, nearly like when Kyle was right here at first. However what that man has accomplished for this group, what he has accomplished for this group, his participation in every little thing that we will ask for. I imply, Kyle, we had ups and downs right here, however I’m telling you, even the measure of it if you have a look at it, the downs have been, like, this a lot. It was nice to develop with him right here.
We want him all the perfect the place he’s. He’s in nice palms in Miami and that group. We all know their requirements and what they need to do. We simply hope we beat them 4 instances a yr and we’ll be good that manner. We will’t wait to have him again after we play them. Sure, we compete on this enterprise. Kyle is a part of this household and he’ll be a part of this household without end. I do know individuals ask… I do know Larry has already talked about his jersey. He’s going to get all of every little thing and a few. Is Kyle the best Raptor that ever performed the sport right here? Sure, he’s. I’m saying it right here. Kyle is the perfect Raptor that performed the sport over the course of his time. It’s unbelievable what he achieved right here, what he took on, rising as a person. His household, Ayahna, the youngsters, we love them. They’re part of us, and so they’ll be a part of us for a very long time.
So, I do know we are going to speak about this for a very long time. We’ll speak about this in the course of the yr, however I wished to pay specific consideration to what Kyle Lowry has accomplished for us. We owe it to him. He takes a lot pleasure. I do know the pleasure that he took on this group, this metropolis, and the individuals of Toronto and Canada as an entire.
Once more, I’ll say my final… Not final thanks yous, however I need to emphasize the work my group, Bobby, Theresa, Dan, Keith, all these guys that work tirelessly attempting to make all of this work in one of the best ways that they will. I thank JQ and my management group. I actually really feel sturdy with the place we’re going with this group. I believe I can open it up for questions now. JQ?
Josh Lewenberg, TSN. Hey, Masai. Congratulations on the deal and nice to see you not on my laptop display screen. What’s the job description of a vice chairman? How a lot do you anticipate your function altering from what it’s been through the years?
We have been taking bets on if that will be the primary query. Josh, you gained. Yeah, it’s attention-grabbing. I had actually nice discussions with Larry and Mirko and Dale and everyone about this. There are numerous issues we need to do, as a corporation. We need to develop globally. We need to develop our enterprise globally. I believe, infrastructure-wise, we need to proceed to develop as a corporation and the way we have a look at the sport, identical to we checked out it after we first got here. Observe services.
I believe there’s going to need to be some form of contribution that I’ve on this interval of COVID and perhaps even after. I believe there are going to be issues that we’ve got to cope with, as a corporation, that I believe goes to perhaps even be separate from my job description as president of basketball operations.
After I have a look at social justice and even the alternatives for the BIPOC group right here, I believe there may be going to be extra that we’re going to need to do. Clearly, with the hiring of John and Teri with MLSE and the Raptors… There are numerous issues we need to do even working with the NBA and what the NBA is doing, constructing extra packages, doing extra partnerships with gamers. We need to construct extra as our group and do extra in our group.
I need to focus lots, too, on NBA Africa. There’s lots there that should develop. We see the expansion of African gamers within the league. I believe infrastructure there, how we proceed to see the sport rising on a world stage, is basically actually vital. After which, Canada Basketball. I simply went to, even, an occasion with Nick Nurse and Mike Barlett. The best way they’re going with the sport, too, and the way they have a look at it, how all of us have a look at it collectively, I believe there may be going to be lots of youth expertise and perhaps basketball growth and the way we see the sport going ahead.
So, many issues that we’ve mentioned that I should get much more concerned in in my place, however I’m enthusiastic about it. And vice chairman is simply horny. It’s cool.
Eric Koreen, The Athletic. Congratulations and good to see you. I’m wanting ahead to what vice chairman means. To begin with, have you ever had any additional discussions on the plausibility and probability of enjoying in Toronto this yr?
Sure. We proceed to have lots of discussions about this. Our hope is that we’re enjoying at dwelling. We now have not regarded elsewhere. We’re not going to look elsewhere. We’re attempting to play at dwelling. That’s the objective for us. I instructed Larry and Adam and, even, Prime Minister Trudeau, that enjoying away set us again a pair years. We all know that. We’re prepared for that problem. Enjoying one other yr elsewhere will set us again 5 years. We’re not attempting to try this. We perceive all the general public well being issues, points. We’re taking measures. As you noticed, we got here up with our coverage with MLSE on how we intend to even fill out our arenas as we go ahead right here as we attempt to play at dwelling.
So, to your query, Eric, we’ve got talked to the league. We’ve talked to public well being officers. We’ve talked inside, clearly, with possession. We’re all collectively on this, on how we need to get again to at the least being secure and attempting to get again to somewhat little bit of, I believe, being regular.
Justin doesn’t have a lot occurring, so you need to be capable to attain him fairly rapidly. I believe it was your first press convention, perhaps even when Tim Leiweke, his first press convention, he stated, “The Raptors by no means wished to be caught within the center.” The place do you see the roster, because it pertains to the context of the Japanese Convention and, finally, competing in your objective, which is to carry one other title to Toronto?
Yeah. To begin with, Eric, actually, we’re going to create our personal path. We don’t need to go along with the wave of what the NBA is doing. We’re such a copycat league. We now have to, I believe, trip our personal alternatives. For now, our alternatives are, I believe, constructing across the younger gamers that we’ve got and letting them develop. We now have very younger veterans. They’re nearly on the identical age at after we had Kyle and DeMar. That’s Fred, that’s OG, that’s Pascal. We need to construct round these guys and the Bouchers and Kehm Birches. All these gamers, I believe, they’ve a degree that they should get to. After which there’s the younger crop. I believe you guys noticed coming that we simply dropped that Scottie Barnes and Dalano… We simply acquired Valuable in a commerce. Malachi. All these guys we need to actually develop in some form of manner.
And I believe we’ve got some form of good historical past from doing that. Three essential gamers come from a growth program. I stated it right here after I sat right here eight years in the past. We’re going to develop gamers and we’re going to construct on that. I’m saying it once more that we’re going to proceed to develop these gamers and we’re going to discover a technique to a technique to win a championship right here, based mostly on the event of our gamers. No matter comes from that, generally trades, generally you purchase by way of free company, we’re simply not going to cry that gamers should not coming right here. That’s not what we’re about. I believe we’ve gone previous that.
Hello, Masai. Louis Zatzman, Raptors Republic. You’ve develop into a star on this market and past throughout your time right here, in a manner that many entrance workplace leaders don’t within the NBA. In what manner does that influence your resolution to re-sign right here, if in any respect, and likewise the roles that you simply’ve spoken about on and off the courtroom as vice chairman?
Yeah, I don’t learn about movie star. Possibly public determine is one of the best ways to place it? For me, we symbolize, as leaders, our group, our communities. If we’ve got a voice, if we’ve got a spot the place we will communicate and shed the sunshine on points and likewise assist, we’ve got to. It’s an obligation for me. That’s my curiosity. That’s my curiosity naturally. It’s form of how my dad and mom taught me to be.
One of many issues we talked about right here is successful. We all the time speak about successful, as a corporation. We need to win as a metropolis. We need to win as a rustic. We need to win on the basketball courtroom, and we need to win off the basketball courtroom. I believe as we do that, we carry individuals alongside. That’s what’s most vital, that we’ve got to carry individuals alongside, as a result of, actually, every little thing else goes to come back and go. The sport stays and our communities stay, however I may not be right here. Larry may not be right here. He may go do one thing else. Individuals may go do one thing else. Gamers may not be right here. You see Kyle. Kyle is elsewhere, however the stamp he has placed on right here is so vital to group, it goes previous even what he has accomplished on the basketball courtroom. You see the impact that he has on individuals.
That’s what we wish our gamers to be about. That’s what we need to be about. And that’s what I need to be about, to be sincere. And I prefer it that the NBA is about that, in some methods. Yeah, we’re a enterprise, however I inform you, the NBA is one massive household. I’m so proud to be a part of that household and the chance that it offers me.
Hey, Masai. Michael Grange from Sportsnet. Good to see you.
Good to see you, man.
Yeah, yeah. A few questions. Numerous them, truly. For this one, after we spoke as a gaggle in, I believe, Might and there was lots of uncertainty about are you coming again, re-signing right here. You’ve saved at a distance for fairly some time. What was the method between, say, the tip of the season and simply final week when it was introduced? And what took so lengthy? What have been among the hurdles that you simply have been attempting to wrestle with or recover from if there have been some?
I used to be wrestling with Larry Tanenbaum. In a single room, we have been simply wrestling for 2 months. I understood that this course of was going to be troublesome, and that’s why I left it till the tip of the season. Negotiating is troublesome. That’s what comes within the terrain. Me and my household actually checked out this and also you get totally different choices or affords that come to you. It comes a degree the place you need to weigh these choices and see what’s greatest for us, as a household. For us, and for me.
Every part we went by way of all the time got here again to Toronto and what Toronto means to me as a metropolis. I name it dwelling. It’s dwelling for me and my household. Relating to negotiating, we simply have to speak about among the issues that aren’t solely vital to me, but additionally vital to the group, too. And also you carry it collectively.
I believe these guys, Dale, everyone, Mirko, I talked to everyone. I got here and met with everyone. It simply comes a degree in your life the place you meet this level and you need to undergo all of that, as a result of now you might be committing once more. I see this place as an unbelievable platform. I don’t suppose gamers have even scratched the floor on what they will do right here. Toronto sits on a spot the place you possibly can actually actually assault the world from right here. So, whether or not it’s the U.S., whether or not it’s Africa, whether or not it’s Europe, whether or not it’s South America, there’s a sure place the place you sit.
And it offers me a platform, a voice, to talk on lots of points right here that I believe are vital, world points which are vital. I recognize that. I’m grateful for that that not solely the individuals, not solely you guys, however everyone offers me that form of platform. It’s not written in cash, however there may be large worth to that.
Lastly, Grange, yeah, it took lengthy. I really feel that there’s a duty that I need to win. We need to win. I stated it from the start after I got here right here. “We need to win in Toronto. We need to win one other championship.” All that stuff is from the previous. Yeah, we will have fun and be cool about what we’ve accomplished prior to now, however the NBA is about now. We’re constructing for a future to place ourselves in place to win one other championship. In some methods, there may be unfinished enterprise. Lastly, I’ll say I need to have fun correctly in the future after we win a championship. I’m not taking a shot, I simply need to have fun properly. And it’ll occur, by the grace of God.
Hey, Masai. Justin Dunk from CHCH Information. MLSE only in the near past introduced that you need to have proof of COVID vaccination or a detrimental check for followers to get into the ability. What’s your perspective on that? And can the gamers be beneath related tips?
We’re going to work with the NBA to see what the participant tips are going to be. I believe Adam and Michele have accomplished an ideal job as much as this stage, and I believe everyone’s curiosity, you noticed within the finals, you noticed in different arenas, is to get it again to the place the sport was. We, as MLSE, have to come back to a spot the place we’ve got to set some form of steerage with the assistance of well being public officers. We felt that that is truthful. That is, I believe, vital that all of us keep secure and we carry individuals to secure environments and to a secure enviornment and to secure occasions.
So, we really feel comfy with it. I do know the NBA schedule is popping out in a few days right here. I do know elements of it has come out already. I do know that schedule says Toronto. It doesn’t say anyplace else, and we’re going to attempt to play secure right here and abide by all the principles and rules that assist all of us keep secure and wholesome.
Hello, Masai. Laura Armstrong from The Toronto Star. The Raptors fan base was on pins and needles ready for this deal of yours to be introduced. How would you characterize your relationship with the basketball group and past within the metropolis?
Ah, the followers are our love right here. That’s why final yr was very very irritating, as a basketball group. We thank Tampa and so they have been unbelievable accommodating us of their enviornment, however man, it’s time to come back dwelling. It’s time to come back dwelling to those followers and to everyone. They imply the world to us, not solely in Toronto and in Canada. You journey in every single place and the assist is like we’ve by no means seen.
I need to enchantment to them to all come again and assist this younger group. We will develop once more and begin to construct as much as the championship caliber group that we need to be. However they imply the world to us and I believe they realize it. You noticed, whether or not it’s Scottie Barnes or all the fellows which have interacted with them on social media… I’m not on social media, however I see bits and items right here. I see how the impact the followers have on us and we find it irresistible.
Hello, Masai. Raphael Guillemette with Radio Canada. First off, a fast query. The group introduced it as a multi-year deal. How lengthy is that this deal, truly? How lengthy ought to we anticipate you in Toronto for?
Eternally. I’ll put strain on Larry right here. Eternally, man. Eternally. No, actually, I’m not going to place out issues there, however I’m dwelling, man. That is it. We’re going to attempt to win one of the best ways that we will. It’s a dedication. I’ve all the time stated if you make that dedication, you make that dedication. That’s what I stated eight years in the past and I believe we honored it, as a household, and that’s what we intend to do, all the time.
You have been by no means shy about your wide-ranging pursuits. Have you ever acquired any affords exterior the NBA? And the way does this supply and your new function rival with what you provided and suit your wants?
Yeah, I don’t need to go into any of these particulars in respect to the opposite alternatives that have been there. Pay attention, I’ve curiosity in so many issues and I’ll proceed to have these pursuits in these issues. How can we weave them in to what I’m doing right here is among the issues I’m attempting to consider as vice chairman, Eric. However sure, these are the issues that I need to take into consideration.
Yeah, individuals know I really like soccer. It’s not rocket science. I’m not pretending that I don’t love soccer right here. I find it irresistible. There are different elements of enterprise, there are different elements of… There’s politics, there’s diplomacy, there’s philanthropy, we will go into many issues that I truly actually actually love and take pleasure in, however how can we weave them into this unbelievable group and unbelievable metropolis and platform that we’ve got right here? We’ll see. We’ll see. We’ll get artistic and we’ll proceed to develop.
We now have to evolve is what I’m saying. All of us need to evolve in every little thing that we do. We will’t simply be set on doing one thing a method. We now have to suppose in another way. Particularly right here in Toronto, I believe we do.
Hey, Masai. Ryan Wolstat, Toronto Solar. Good to see you in individual.
What’s up, Ryan?
Not a lot. Only a two-parter. How a lot do you suppose simply the bubble after which being in Tampa performed into among the inside stuff with the group, be it with Pascal or anybody else? And the way a lot do you suppose being dwelling probably would alleviate that? And in addition, perhaps a 3rd half, how do you keep away from, perhaps, the Dragic factor turning into a distraction or something like that?
In case you’re asking about the way it has affected us, the bubble and Tampa, I say this to my employees and I say it to the gamers, too, is when it’s truly occurring, it’s actually troublesome. Like, after we have been within the bubble, you might be in your room, your head is spinning whereas saying, “You’re on this house. You may’t exit,” all that stuff. Once you truly look again at it, when is it going to occur once more? It’s an unbelievable expertise, unbelievable factor that you simply have been part of, shifting to Tampa.
To see my employees navigate this… I believe it was two weeks earlier than we went to Tampa that Theresa Resch actually put this motion of, “We’re going to play in Tampa,” placing it collectively. All of the conferences, all of the issues, working with the NBA, Amy Brooks and the enterprise aspect, Mark Tatum, everyone that we needed to work with to get to try this. That have, actually, we’ll by no means get once more first-hand.
And, by the way in which, I hope it by no means comes once more, however there are a lot of issues we’ve discovered from this. By way of the gamers now and by way of the group, it was arduous for a few of them, if not all of them. It’s not simple. I’ll offer you an instance. Some individuals have a home in Toronto. Kyle has a home in Philly, has a spot in Tampa. Individuals have three locations. Then, how are we dealing with the insurance coverage? How are we dealing with taxes? How are we dealing with nannies? How are we dealing with faculties?
And by the way in which, these issues are massive issues however there are a lot of individuals on this world that undergo more durable, more durable issues. We’re not saying ours is any more durable. I’m simply saying ours, in our trade, that is how robust it was for this. There are individuals which are going by way of a lot worse and we fully perceive that.
So, I give an instance of Pascal. The video games get shut down right here. Pascal has visa points, I believe, and so he’s caught right here in his condominium. He doesn’t need to exit and contract this illness. And so, Pascal is doing nothing between then and the bubble. The bubble comes and he’s not in the perfect form that he can probably be. It’s shortened break after which he comes into this season. Truthfully, Pascal realizes this when he truly contracts COVID. He sheds. He begins to search out himself. And we had the unlucky subject with Nick Nurse. I do know him and Nick have gotten right into a a lot significantly better place and other people can suppose higher. I believe everyone is in a greater place, to be sincere. And even when we’re coming again, we’re studying as you go. We’re studying from all these experiences, and I do know he’s.
I do know the fan base, individuals have been arduous on him, however belief me, Pascal is a prideful man. Pascal is an unbelievable basketball participant. Possibly as a result of he wasn’t enjoying properly, individuals give you all these items. Pascal is right here. Pascal is a Raptor and he’s going to be play with us.
So, yeah, the gamers all discovered it troublesome, by some means, however I additionally respect them for the way in which they tried and gave it every little thing.
Hello, Masai. French radio. You stated you need to win, however what’s your perspective, regarding the new pattern in NBA all of those groups attempting to construct tremendous group. Clearly, the Raptors, we’re not in the identical mindset. So, how do you see a timeline for one more shot at successful once more?
Yeah, I don’t know what the precise timeline for us is. It’s arduous to say if you find yourself creating gamers and gamers are rising. We’re going to give them that chance to develop. Pay attention, there may be going to be tremendous groups and tremendous tremendous groups and there’s going to be three superstars on one group and perhaps you may get as many as 10 in the future. We’re not taking that route, at the least not for now. Our route is to develop our younger gamers and be enthusiastic about what we’ve got and depend on Nick and his nice employees. I believe Nick has accomplished an unbelievable job in creating our gamers and giving the alternatives for our gamers to play.
That’s the route we’re going to take. Typically it is perhaps sluggish and generally it is perhaps painful. You watched the summer time league. A few of it was thrilling to observe and a few of it was painful to observe. That’s the expansion of the sport and that’s what we need to really feel, as a corporation. I do know that’s what the followers, too, actually recognize seeing and seeing the expansion of our group.
Hey, Masai. Once you got here to Toronto the primary time, you had form of a listing of priorities. Simply, I ponder what a few of these is perhaps going ahead? I believe you’d mentioned that you simply wished to… That was going to be a part of this negotiation, that you simply wished to have [crosstalk 00:35:41]-
It’s a superb query, Grange.
So, what’s subsequent, Masai?
Final time after I had that listing, I by no means stated it out. The listing is correct right here, so I’ll simply go do it, reasonably than speak about it. I believe that’s one of the best ways to do it. I perceive the query. You’re not going to trick me, Grange. I’ve recognized you for too a few years.
Only a fast one, Masai. With the tampering investigation, is there something new on that? Had been you stunned by the truth that it was instigated?
It’s unbelievable how each NBA group has a deal accomplished by 6:02, no? I don’t understand how that occurs. All I do know is I gave my telephone for investigation. I’ve no remark. That’s the one remark I’ve.
Hello, Masai. Yasmin, Dishes & Dimes. Scottie Barnes has already develop into a little bit of a fan favourite in a few weeks with a sturdy cult following. What stood out about him to you as a prospect? And what does his potential on the group appear like?
Yeah. To have a younger participant… I do know, yeah, there was some speak on draft day who to draft, who to not draft, like a public opinion. I need to say, our scouting group does an unbelievable job of going to observe these gamers, scout these gamers. I bear in mind a few our scouts sitting in Australia for 14 days in quarantine ready to observe the prospect, Giddey, play in Australia.
Each group does this. We go at a lot size to scout these gamers. We now have a course of that we undergo. We now have our rankings. We now have our arguments. We now have our disagreements. He was only a participant that excited all of us. Knock wooden, he has an unbelievable profession forward of him.
The eagerness for the sport, successful, if you have a look at the degrees he’s performed on USA Basketball, whether or not it’s Below 16, Below 18, he’s gained at each degree. It’s loopy. You interview a man like that and he mentions successful or win 34 instances in a single interview. All he talks about is successful. And that is what we wished to carry.
Additionally, in the future we need to play massive and lengthy. Once you have a look at him, you have a look at Pascal, you have a look at OG, you have a look at Boucher, you have a look at all these gamers, and you then have a look at the feistiness of Fred and all of them, there’s something of pleasure to have these form of gamers.
The expansion of OG, I believe he’s one of many guys that goes the place individuals don’t speak about a lot. His sport has jumped, and there may be going to be one other bounce. He’s 23-years-old, nonetheless. What’s the future forward from the OG we’ve seen? I believe it’s so vivid. The management of Fred, from his relationship and mentorship from Kyle Lowry. We’re enthusiastic about him as a pacesetter. You guys noticed the leap Chris Boucher made. We’re enthusiastic about that.
How about Valuable that we simply acquired in a commerce? By the way in which, that is near me. You guys can name me biased all you need. A child that was truly within the Giants of Africa camp to come back and play as a Raptor? That, to me, is even shifting the sport ahead. He’s not a cheerleader. He’s going to be, I believe, an exceptional NBA participant.
This growth means lots to our group. We need to proceed to develop like that. So, sure. There’s loads of pleasure about not solely Scottie Barnes however all of the younger gamers we’ve got. How about Dalano from proper right here in Toronto? A younger participant who we consider that we acquired him in a draft in all probability the yr earlier than. He would, truly, perhaps be a excessive prospect subsequent yr. We’re enthusiastic about that.
So, yeah, it may not be the massive three and successful now, such as you stated, sir, just like the tremendous groups, however in our minds it’s somewhat tremendous. It’s tremendous younger, however tremendous hopeful.
Hey, Masai. Vivek Jacob of Raptors.com. Speaking about Valuable, for him to come back full circle like that, what was that first dialog with him like? How a lot did it imply to him to be related to you once more?
Yeah. I bear in mind speaking to him. He was truly getting back from the Olympics. He blessed to play for Nigeria within the Olympics and he was connecting in Atlanta. I spoke to him. His first phrase was, “Lastly.” My first phrase was, “You’re mine now.”
Hey, Masai. Justin Dunk from CHCH Information once more. You talked about that the schedule goes to come back out and Toronto’s going to be the house enviornment for the Raptors. Is there any replace with the varied ranges of presidency? And have you ever truly talked on to Prime Minster Justin Trudeau’s workplace? And somewhat little bit of a enjoyable one so as to add on. Do you’ve got any marketing campaign suggestions for him? You’re fairly good at successful over the group.
Yeah, hear. Justin Trudeau is a good friend of mine, even exterior of every little thing. I assist him 100% each time. So, I do know there may be totally different those who observe various things and insurance policies and guidelines that perhaps I don’t observe as a lot, however I knew Justin Trudeau, Prime Minster, even earlier than he was a first-rate minster. Really, one of many first occasions I went to with Journalists for Human Rights after I got here to Toronto… So, I need to make it clear that a few of these guys that I do know are associates. I assist him as a good friend. So, that’s one.
Have I had discussions with the workplace? Sure. We now have them repeatedly. Theresa is in contact on a regular basis. We now have committees and totally different teams that we work with MLSE and we proceed to try this on a regular basis. There’s levels, they’re totally different locations, instances, issues go up and down, issues change, however we’re in fixed communication with everyone.
Thanks guys. Thanks. I recognize you guys. Thanks.
