Drake, who serves as a global ambassador for the organization, was seen embracing several Raptors personnel, including Scottie Barnes, Dalano Banton and head coach Nick Nurse. He also joined the Raptors’ broadcast and spoke about the team on TSN.
The Toronto native previously met Barnes and Banton after the Raptors drafted the two players. He wasted no time in welcoming them to Toronto as he linked up with them at the team facility just a few days after the draft.
