As soon as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Chris Haynes broke the news on Wednesday morning, former Raptors DeMarre Carroll and Terrence Ross, as well as the likes of Orlando Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier and Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, took to social media to react to the blockbuster move that is expected to be completed later today.

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman and Nashville Predators defenceman P.K. Subban shared their thoughts on the trade, too.

Also included in the deal are Danny Green, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick. While there is risk involved in the trade for the Raptors, Kawhi could take the franchise to a new level.
