The 2015-2016 NBA season is almost here, and to get ready for all the action the new season will bring, SiriusXM NBA Radio is visiting the training camps of 11 teams, bringing fans updates, interviews and insights from some of the best in the game. NBA Radio wrapped up the tour at Raptors’ camp; Toronto is looking to get back to the postseason for the third straight season.

DeMar DeRozan is motivated by the team’s quick elimination in last year’s playoffs.

“Us getting swept, that’s the worst it can get,” DeRozan said. “The way we went out definitely to this day hurts, especially all the guys who were here last year. That’s all the motivation that we need – to make sure we don’t feel that same feeling again.”

GM Masai Ujiri spoke about what team needs he prioritized in the past offseason.

“We were not a good defending team like the year before, and we had to address that,” said Ujiri. “There was no rocket science, it was just we’re not a good defensive team and we had to get back to being a good defensive team. It doesn’t happen until we all start playing for real, so we don’t even know what we have. The team has to come together.”
