Cue the Kevin Durant to Toronto rumors.

Toronto-born rapper Drake released his fourth studio album Views on Thursday and he name-dropped a soon-to-be free agent on "Weston Road Flows."

Durant and Drake are known to be good friends, so the allusion might be nothing more than that, but there's also the matter of their ties to the Raptors.

Drake is the Raptors' global ambassador (and their most overenthusiastic fan), and he previously caught a fine from the league in trying to recruit Durant to Toronto while he attended OVO Fest in the city wearing a Toronto Blue Jays jersey last summer.

As for Durant, he said in 2013 that he wanted to play for the Raptors when he was growing up.

"Believe it or not, I wanted to play for the Toronto Raptors, that was my favorite team," he said.

Like nearly every Raptors fan, Durant's affection began because of Vince Carter, the electric skywalker that forever changed basketball in Canada. Durant loved watching Carter dominate, and has repeatedly called him one of his idols.

So then it can't be a coincidence that Drake dropped Vinsanity's name later in the same song.

Been flowin' stupid since Vince Carter was on some through the legs arm in the hoop s---
