Smart move for Raps to hire Kawhi's friend? (1:17)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The Toronto Raptors are hiring San Antonio Spurs staffer Jeremy Castleberry – a close friend of Kawhi Leonard – to a position on their coaching staff, league sources told ESPN. By all accounts, Castleberry is more than qualified for this position with Toronto. The Spurs didn't want to lose him. But it will be interesting to see if the Castleberry hire, which was essentially done for Leonard, leads to resentment among Raptors players/coaches. Leonard, of course, will test free agency next summer.
