This game will mark the second time that Kawhi Leonard has come to play in Vancouver. Last October, he made his preseason debut with the Toronto Raptors as they took on the Portland Trailblazers.
Just a few days ago, Kawhi Leonard announced that he was signing with the Los Angeles Clippers after delivering Canada its first ever NBA championship. The Clippers also acquired all-star Paul George to team up with the board man himself.
As of right now, the Raptors’ preseason plans have not been announced.
Ticket prices and when tickets will go on sale for this NBA preseason game in Vancouver have not been made public yet.
