Raptors say Trump win could be good news for Toronto

Who's moving to Canada? While a lot of celebrities, including Snoop Dogg, said they'd head here if Donald Trump won the American presidential election, it doesn't look like any of them have followed through yet.

Still, Toronto Raptors' General Manager Masai Ujiri joked that this trend could bode well for our local sports teams.


As Neil Davidson, senior sports writer at the Canadian Press tweeted, Ujiri said, "I want to thank Donald Trump for making Toronto an unbelievable sports destination," at the Sports Media Canada Achievement Awards.

Forward Patrick Paterson was a little more concise in his assessment of the election results.

Numerous other players tweeted out reaction with the election results too. Let's see if the Raptors picks up any more NBA free agents now.
