Kawhi Leonard & Demar DeRozan Trade. Toronto’s hope!

FINALLY!!! THE SPURS FINALLY FOUND AN OFFER THEY WOULD ACCEPT FOR KAWHI. WHICH WOULD BE AN EAST SUITOR NON THE LESS THAN TORONTO. REPORTS ABOUT THIS TRADE STARTED LATE LAST WEEK.

TRADE RECAP:
TORONTO RAPTORS RECEIVED: KAWHI LEONARD & DANNY GREEN
SAN ANTONIO SPURS RECEIVED: DEMAR DEROZAN, JAKOB POELTL, & A PROTECTED 1ST ROUND PICK

CONTRACTS:
DEMAR DEROZAN 29, WILL BE UNDER CONTRACT WITH THE SPURS UNTIL 2020 WHEN HE HAS A PLAYER OPTION.
KAWHI LEONARD 27, WHO WILL BE A FREE AGENT AFTER THIS SEASON.

TORONTO TOOK A HUGE GAMBLE AND SAYING WERE ALL IN ON YOU KAWHI. WHICH IS NOT ALL THAT BAD ESPECIALLY WITH WHAT TORONTO ALREADY HAS BUILT. WOULD IT BE CRAZY IF I WERE TO SAY WITH KAWHI’S MOTIVATION TO PROVE THAT HE IS THE BEST 2-WAY PLAYER IN THIS GAME AND WITH TORONTO’S ROSTER THAT THEY COULD HAVE A SHOT TO GO TO THE FINALS NEXT YEAR? WOULD THAT BE ENOUGH FOR KAWHI TO STAY WITH THIS TORONTO RAPTORS TEAM. A TEAM THAT WILL UNQUESTIONABLY BE HIS TEAM AND ULTIMATELY HIS CONFERENCE.

IN MY OPINION I BELIEVE TORONTO TOOK A RISK BECAUSE LET’S FACE IT THEIR STARS COULDN’T GET IT DONE. TIME TO REBUILD YOU HAVE A GOOD BENCH AND A LOT OF YOUNG TALENT. WHY NOT? LET’S GO ALL IN THIS YEAR. MAKES SENSE TO ACQUIRE A 2X DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR & FINALS MVP WHO RESTED ALL LAST YEAR. LEBRON IS NO LONGER IN THE EAST AND BY OCCURRING KAWHI, WHO’S LAST FULL SEASON HE WAS CONSIDERED A TOP 3 PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE. LET’S SAY THIS KAWHI LEONARD IN THE EAST IS SCARY! THE TOP OF EAST GOT A LOT MORE INTERESTING FOR THIS UPCOMING SEASON.

WHAT DO THE SPURS GET? THEY DID ALRIGHT IN THIS TRADE “TORONTO’S FIRST-ROUND PICK TO SAN ANTONIO IS A PROTECTED 1-20 SELECTION, A SOURCE TOLD ESPN. AFTER ONE YEAR, IT BECOMES TWO SECOND-ROUND PICKS.” DEROZAN WHO IS AN ALL STAR AND IN HIS PRIME.

DEMAR SHARE HOW HE FELT ABOUT THE TRADE


LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THESE TWO TEAMS NEXT YEAR.
