Marc Gasol said that the Toronto Raptors were eager to prove how good they could be without Kawhi Leonard.
"If I had to express it in one word, I would say 'hungry. I think it's a very hungry team. We all understand what Kawhi meant to the team and how well he played in the playoffs. But we also understand how good we can be as a team, said Gasol.
Nick Nurse added that Pascal Siakam will be given a chance to expand his playmaking game this upcoming season.
"He's going to be given a great chance, a great opportunity here to really expand his role and his game. There's going to be lots of opportunity for him to have the ball," added Nurse.
Masai Ujiri said earlier this week that the Raptors are looking to keep Siakam for the long-term.
