Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs looks on during the first half of a game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 18, 2016 in Los Angeles, California. Leonard possibly was going to use the event as a chance to showcase the status of his recovery. "So I'm sure if Kawhi would have said, 'Hey, I want a Bentley, ' or 'I want this, ' or whatever, the Spurs would have done everything in their power to make that happen for him". He claimed that after an initial diagnosis of a "slight strain" and a course of rehabilitation that kept him out for a few games, he continued to experience discomfort but team doctors did not send him to a specialist or perform another examination until the end of the season, when it was revealed that the strain had worsened into a groin tear. For me, I understood they were trying to go in a different direction.

"When I hear him talk about the bitterness and the disrespect and all that type of stuff, it's like, you didn't get traded to frickin' Cleveland", Lucic added. He played in only nine games last season, seeking additional opinions on the injury after the Spurs' medical staff cleared him to play. But Leonard never returned, electing to stay in NY to rehab his mysterious quadriceps injury instead of helping his team on the court or supporting them on the bench.

Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green were shipped to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick.

"Discussions broke down abruptly because representatives for Leonard didn't feel that the new deal reflected the forward's accomplishments and standing within the league", sources told ESPN's Michael C. Wright and Ramona Shelburn. His passed physical, reported Tuesday by ESPN's Brian Windhorst, means that the trade is official, and Leonard's health is no longer the Spurs' problem.

I don't know if this is good or bad, but I think Twitter agrees.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is the head coach of Team USA. "Just because Kawhi went and got a second opinion, you can't knock him for that".
