Kawhi Leonard Did Something Last Night He Hasn’t Done In Years

July 18 01:38 PM On this episode of The HoopsHype Podcast, Alex Kennedy and Frank Urbina break down the blockbuster trade between the San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors that landed Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green in Toronto and DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected first-round pick in San Antonio.

This has to be in response to Ujiri's comments made on Friday.

The deal brings an anticlimactic end to the Kawhi Leonard saga that National Basketball Association fans have been so closely following since the start of last season. That team is coached by San Antonio's Gregg Popovich.

"I don't think we lack anything in this city". But if DeRozan had left for greener pastures in 2016, fans would have likely skewered him for showing no loyalty to Toronto.

Leonard has yet to pass a physical, Ujiri said, adding one is expected to happen "in the next couple of days".

"It's a big loss to the city", said Tom Best, the executive director of First Book Canada, one of the many charities in the city DeRozan associated himself with during his nine years with the Raptors.

"On the court, in the community, and in the hearts of Raptors Fans, DeMar DeRozan has been an incredible part of Toronto". The guard voiced his displeasure regarding the trade on his Instagram account as the news was breaking on Wednesday, insinuating that Toronto's management was disloyal. The Raptors president was vague about just what he was apologizing for, other than some miscommunication, but he knew he needed to say he was sorry.

"I think DeMar was the heart and soul of the team, I think he gave everything to the team", Tharma said. "So not necessarily talking about a trade... but what I expect from him going forward and I think that's where the gap was, because in my job I always have to assume that we're going forward with the team that I have and if there was a miscommunication there, I do apologize to DeMar and his family and his representation, it's not what I meant..."

Shortly after the news conference DeRozan posted a facepalming emoji to his Instagram feed.

DeRozan was Toronto's best scorer in each of the last five seasons and helped the team to a 59-23 record and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs this past season. He took pictures with them and signed autographs.

Boucher, a six-foot-10, 200 pound forward from Montreal, played for the Raptors at Summer League in Las Vegas, averaging 10.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.3 blocks and 20.8 minutes in four games.
