Bryan Colangelo: Raptors Considered Drafting Kawhi Leonard At No. 5

Bryan Colangelo revealed Wednesday that the Toronto Raptors considered Kawhi Leonard with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

Colangelo said Leonard was "definitely on the list," but the former Raptors' general manager said selecting him would have been a tough sell.

The Raptors selected Jonas Valanciunas with the No. 5 pick.

Leonard scored 29 points in the San Antonio Spurs' Game 3 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday.
