Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kawhi Leonard has been traded from the San Antonio Spurs to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for DeMar DeRozan. Both players are elite level players. Early reports are that neither player is enthused about the deal.
This trade will have ramifications felt throughout the whole league. Will Kawhi sit out another year? Will DeRozan join him? While this is unlikely, nothing is a guarantee in today’s sporting world.
DeRozan averaged 23 PPG. and 5 APG. Last season he was an East All-Star and lead the Raptors to the #1 record in the Eastern Conference. It will be interesting to see how he can fit into the Spurs system, as he is a gifted defender and athletic offensive player.
