Kawhi Leonard has no interest in playing for the Toronto Raptors and there have been indications that he could sit out the entire season if necessary, according to a report from Sean Deveney of Sporting News.
The San Antonio Spurs traded Leonard and Danny Green to the Raptors Wednesday in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected draft pick.
Both Leonard and DeRozan didn’t want the trade to happen, as Leonard wants to play in Los Angeles while DeRozan was happy in Toronto.
Leonard hasn’t taken a physical with the Raptors and has one week to take it. He missed most of this past season with a lingering quadriceps injury.
The two-time Defensive Player of the Year will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019.
