from the text quoted in the op above:

But DeRozan and Johnson would likely not be able to host their game at the ACC given the fact that Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment owns the building and the Raptors (conflict of interest RE: the ongoing Lockout). Ditto for Ricoh Coliseum. So a DeRozan-Johnson venture would likely tip off at somewhere like Ryerson or U of T.
