Leonard passes physical with Raptors

Adjust Comment Print

Although Kawhi Leonard is now free from the San Antonio Spurs after he and Danny Green were traded to the Toronto Raptors for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl, and a 2019 first-round draft pick, most rumors still suggest he'll only be playing one season north of the border. Leonard possibly was going to use the event as a chance to showcase the status of his recovery.

Leonard will reportedly spend the week preparing to transition to his new team.

Green disclosed in his debut podcast earlier in the day that he played the end of the season on a torn groin which went undetected by the Spurs.

"Would a new company be able to get the historically reserved Leonard to jump in on the arena entry trend, with a series of made-for-social-media-styled outfits that have helped to raise the star power of players around the league?" "[It says] slight strain, take a couple weeks off. 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". I'd feel it. My agent (Joe Branch) said, "Maybe we should get a second opinion.' I didn't want to because I have full faith and believe in the Spurs" staff. For me, I understood they were trying to go in a different direction. Popovich, the Spurs' head coach, openly expressed his exasperation with Leonard last season during the forward's protracted injury absence. Reports began emerging of "discord" between the two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year and the Spurs, and while Popovich scoffed at talk of a rare "soap opera" involving his normally drama-free squad, it wasn't long before National Basketball Association insiders were claiming that some of Leonard's teammates were expressing frustration with him and imploring him to return to the lineup.

Spurs doctors had cleared Leonard to return to play, but he sought second opinions and did not return, making his health a question mark following the trade.

"You know, it's hard to get Kawhi to say three words to you".
