First-round pick Gradey Dick suggested he’s already really liking Toronto.
“I’ve talked about it a lot, this team stuff — and even before the draft. I wanted to be in an organization where I could find that good fit in it, but also be in a winning culture with a fan base that’s not like anybody else, and I think I hit the jackpot … coming here,” Dick said via Doug Smith of the Toronto Star. “Walking down the street and families coming up, the first thing they say is: ‘Welcome to Toronto. We’re glad to have you.’ And I think that’s what we like to hear the most, rather than a quick: ‘Hi, bye.’”
Dick is expected to participate in the Las Vegas Summer League, along with fellow rookie Markquis Nowell and others.
