Raptors reportedly likely to retire Kawhi Leonard’s number

The Toronto Raptors only had Kawhi Leonard for a year, but the impact he made on the organization is immeasurable — and it sounds like it will be duly recognized.

Greg Brady of Sportsnet 590 believes the Raptors already intend to unofficially retire Leonard’s No. 2 by taking it out of circulation after the star forward delivered the team an NBA title in his lone year there.
