Sources: Raptors Fined For Drake's Kevin Durant 'Pitch'

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports
ESPN is reporting that the Toronto Raptors have been fined $25,000 for a violation of its anti-tampering rules stemming from comments that rap star and team ambassador Drake made about Kevin Durant at a recent concert.

The sources said that Durant, who attended Drake's recent show in Toronto, was the subject of what the league regards as a public recruiting pitch from the famed Canadian artist.

In September 2013, Drake was formally named the Raptors' global ambassador.

"Before we leave, I just want to show one of my brothers something," Drake announced to the crowd. "You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star and reigning NBA MVP then received an ovation from the crowd, which reportedly launched into a "KD" chant.

I don't think he wants to commit career suicide.
