Former Raptor Cory Joseph thanks Toronto on Twitter

Raptors analyst Leo Rautins discusses the club’s moves to land CJ Miles and to dump DeMarre Carroll, and why GM Masai Ujiri’s great cap management will allow him the freedom to go into luxury tax at the perfect time.

Point guard Cory Joseph, now a member of the Indiana Pacers, took to Twitter on Monday to thank the city of Toronto for his time with the Toronto Raptors.

Joseph was shipped to Indiana on July 14 as part of a sign-and-trade for C.J. Miles, along with the draft rights to forward Emir Preldzic.

The 25-year-old called playing for his hometown team “a privilege,” and that he was looking forward to meeting the fans in Indiana.

“It was an honour to play for you and rep The Six!” he wrote. “Toronto will always have a place in my heart.”
