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.
