DRAKE: Paying His Own Way??

Posted August 13th, 2014 @ 11:53am

Drake is the Toronto Raptors' Global Ambassador, but he's not getting paid for his services by the NBA team. Drake's unpaid status was revealed after the NBA fined the Raptors $25,000 for tampering after Drake tried to recruit NBS star Kevin Durant to the team. The team argued that the fine wasn't applicable since Drake wasn't an actual employee.

According to the Toronto Globe and Mail, the Raptors noted that when Drake gave away OVO T-shirts at a game, he had to purchase them at cost from the team. 

The paper also reported that the NBA offered to drop the fine if the Raptors severed their ties with Drake, but the team refused.
