TORONTO (AP) — The Raptors' basketball-dribbling dinosaur logo will soon be extinct.
The NBA team has unveiled a sleek new logo that's a silver basketball, ripped by dinosaur claw marks, inside a red circle. The current dinosaur logo will be retired after this season.
The Raptors unveiled the logo in a short video clip Friday titled "This is our Shield." It's part of the team's "We The North" marketing campaign.
Canadian rapper Drake, the Raptors' global ambassador, had a hand in the redesign.
