Warriors Guard Klay Thompson was diagnosed with a left ACL tear in their game six loss to the Toronto Raptors. Thompson will likely be out for the entire 2019-2020 season like current teammate Kevin Durant.
The Washington Wizards are preparing to offer Toronto Raptors president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri that could come close to $10 million. Ujiri would also get part ownership that would also help oversea the NHL’s Washington Capitals. Ujiri made bold moves as the Raptors president to trade Guard DeMar DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard and fire 2018 Coach of the Year Dwane Casey and hire former g-league head coach Nick Nurse, which led to the 2019 NBA Championship. Wizards owner Ted Leonsis is expected to meet with Toronto management about a potential meet-up with Ujiri.
Toronto Raptors Forward Kawhi Leonard won the 2019 NBA Finals MVP by averaging almost thirty-points a game during the NBA Finals. Leonard won the Finals MVP in San Antonio with the Spurs as well as in Toronto. That is the first time one player has ever accomplished that feat.
