Raptors didn't lose in free agency, but Kawhi Leonard certainly won

Montreal idea sets stage for Rays' eventual departure from Tampa
Jeff Blair
The fact it’s Montreal first out of the gate for an MLB team has Jeff Blair thinking baseball will return to Quebec on a full-time basis maybe faster than originally thought.
