Danny Green came to Toronto along with Kawhi Leonard. Although he has not yet decided on his immediate future, the 32-year-old would like to remain in Toronto if the core remains intact.
“We won a championship. Certainly we would like to win another. Everyone would like to see the same group come back, “said the one who was in Montreal on Thursday to offer a clinic to students at Lucien-Pagé High School.

In addition to the first championship offered to Raptors fans, the recent basketball craze for all of Canada could be a powerful argument for keeping Green in Toronto.
“You will not get this support anywhere other than Toronto. San Antonio had gold fans, but the Raptors have all of Canada behind them. We had free food offers for life to stay in Toronto, “said Green, who averaged 10.3 points per game last year.
The latter has already raised the trophy Larry O’Brien in 2014 with the Spurs. It should however that the craze of this title with the Raptors is in another category.
“I do not mean it’s bigger, but when you’re supported by a country, it’s very special. It was an incredible feeling, “he said.
Green was aware of the hype of basketball in Canada, but not so much and that’s what he discovered in his cross-country tour. After stops in Ottawa and Montreal, he will travel to Halifax, Winnipeg and Vancouver.
