Masai Ujiri very confident Raptors will be able to retain Kawhi Leonard

Boasting a 42-16 record heading into their final game before the all-star break, the Toronto Raptors are likely feeling good about where they stand.

And if team president Masai Ujiri is to be believed, they should be feeling the same in regards to their biggest task off the hardwood as well.

Ujiri conveyed confidence the Raptors have done a good job of convincing Kawhi Leonard to stick around longer than just this one season while appearing on Prime Time Sports Wednesday evening.

“Kawhi’s a grown man, he’s going to decide what he wants to do, but I believe just from getting to know Kawhi very, very well that he will make the right decision,” Ujiri said.

Getting to have Leonard on the team for a year is better than a one-hour presentation if they were pursuing him in free agency, Ujiri said.

He said Toronto is going to do everything they can to show Leonard it’s the right organization.
