Kawhi has arrived in Toronto… and he’s even smiling

Kawhi has arrived in Toronto… and he’s even smiling

Native Californian DeMar DeRozan posted a heartfelt note on Instagram Saturday, addressed to the fans who cheered for him during his nine seasons with the Toronto Raptors.

The Spurs traded Leonard along with Danny Green in exchange for DeRozan, a 2019 protected first-round pick and big man Jakob Poeltl, ending the yearlong saga between the two-time defensive player of the year and San Antonio, which grew contentious because of an apparent disconnect over the state of Leonard's quad injury. "We spoke. I think maybe my mistake was talking about what we expected going forward from him, not necessarily about the trade", Ujiri added.

During an appearance on Monday's episode of "The Jump", Hall of Famer David Robinson offered his reaction to the trade, calling it "one of the oddest situations I think I've seen since I've been in pro basketball".

After missing out on landing a superstar this offseason with LeBron James joining the Los Angeles Lakers along with Kawhi Leonard recently being sent to the Toronto Raptors in a trade, the most important factor for the Philadelphia 76ers is remembering this team is still in awesome shape. If there was a miscommunication there I do apologize to DeMar, his family, and his representation. "It's not what I meant". He said he tried to focus on what DeRozan should do next instead of focusing on trade talks.

‘Aggressive’ Montenegro could cause WWIII, Trump says in latest North Atlantic Treaty Organisation jibe
The governor's four-day stay had been wrapping up Wednesday in Montenegro, where he met with business and political leaders. The only time Article 5 was ever invoked was by America after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks conducted by al-Qaeda.

Leonard is only under contract for one more season, so it may not much matter how he feels about the Greater Toronto Area, but there's some speculation that once he spends more time in the area he will embrace the city more.

If they'd approached him as a free agent next summer, the chances of Toronto getting a meeting with the 26-year-old would've been slim.

"You can't do this same thing over and over again", Ujiri said. The post included a photo of Leonard with Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster. Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri leveraged his goodwill from the city as well as the future of his team by trading DeMar DeRozan to get Leonard.
