  • DeMar and ED quotes at Drew League: SI

    Toronto guard DeMar DeRozan

    On the recent hiring of former Dallas assistant/former Minnesota head coach Dwane Casey as Raptors head coach:

    "I knew [Casey] from when I used to work out in Vegas during the summer. He was always there working out guys. He helped me out a lot. I've known him for the last two summers. He's definitely a good dude, a humble dude. I can't wait to get out there and work with him."

    On the organization's shift to a defense-first mentality that was reflected in the Casey hiring:

    "[Defense] is what we need. I think last year we could score with the best players in the NBA, but the only thing that killed us was the defensive end. That's a critical part in the NBA. Once you get that down and are a top five, top 10 defensive team, that'll take you far.


    Toronto forward Ed Davis

    On playing in the Drew League and the importance of getting time with Raptors teammates DeRozan and Amir Johnson while training in L.A.:

    "[The Drew League] is tough for big guys, but just to get in shape it's good. You get to do something other than working out and playing pickup. It's fun, man. I like it. It's top three [among non-NBA sanctioned summer leagues in the country].

    "I'm feeling good. One of the main reasons I'm out in L.A. is so I can be with DeMar and Amir and all the L.A. guys, just to be sort of like a [bonding] thing for all us Raptors guys to spend some time together."

      Good to hear it. Although I'm not surprised to hear it from DeMar.

        Good to hear, from Ed.


        Demar was wearing a Blue Jays cap for one of those interviews as well.
        Repping Toronto. Love to see it.

                it's nice to hear these guys aren't ashamed to be Raptors or acknowledge the need to improve. Love that Demar was rockin the Jays cap back in LA. Dude reps more Toronto than many past NBAers. It means nothing but at least it isn't Lebron wearing a Yankee cap and getting signature shoes in Knicks colourway
                LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

                    yess i am glad to see that the guys are putting in work together this off season. Demar and Ed are my two fav raptors at the moment. These guys are gonna take this franchise to places we have never been.
