As the world of social media is again fluttering with discussions on how the Spurs core got shattered and on which team won the trade, San Antonio's living legend head coach Gregg Popovich plainly stated that everyone should just turn away from the past. "Soon you'll understand. Don't disturb".
Toronto sends four-time All-Star DeRozan, center Jakob Poeltl and a 2019 protected (1-20) first-round pick to the Spurs for Leonard and guard Danny Green. "If Toronto can keep him it's a good deal for Toronto because they get the best player in the deal", one rival National Basketball Association executive said.
DeRozan reportedly met with the Raptors in Las Vegas and was told he wouldn't be traded.
Leonard, of course, asked for a trade earlier in the offseason with an eye on heading to Los Angeles to be a Laker or a Clipper. The 2014 NBA Finals MVP played just nine games with the Spurs this past season while battling an array of injuries, and has reportedly expressed a lack of interest in joining the Raptors.

"It's a gamble, but Toronto is probably at the point where, 'We've probably only got one more run with this team anyhow so let's mix it up.' And if they have to rebuild or retool, they could do it without the [$83] million they owe DeRozan".
