The Toronto Raptors and Canadian rap star Drake announced plans to grow their partnership Wednesday with a new program called Welcome Toronto.

Raptors president Masai Ujiri and Drake — who has served as the team's global ambassador since 2013 — announced the program before the Raptors' home game against the Detroit Pistons.

The team will host six Welcome Toronto-themed home games this season — beginning Jan. 26 against the Utah Jazz — where the Raptors will wear their Drake brand OVO uniforms and debut a new black and gold home court. The other games are Jan. 28 against the L.A. Lakers, Feb. 2 against Portland, March 9 against Houston, March 23 against Brooklyn and April 6 against Indiana.

Under the program, Drake and the Raptors will donate $1 million to refurbish local community basketball courts and another $2 million to Canada Basketball.

$3 mil....that's awesome - love the impact the team and Drake are having.  All things that will enhance basketball in Canada.

On a side note, I can't wait to see the new court!
