Raptors ‘generating buzz’ as possible landing spot for Kawhi

Could Kawhi Leonard be heading north?

Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post reports there has been some “buzz” about the San Antonio Spurs’ disgruntled two-time first-team All-NBA superstar heading to the Toronto Raptors.

“The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard,” Bontemps writes. “With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, perhaps Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri is willing to swing for the fences and move DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry in such a deal.”

As is the case with all potential suitors for Leonard, though, there are plenty of questions, one of them being at the top of the list is the right quadriceps injury that kept him on the sidelines for all but nine games last season with San Antonio.

“Further complicating the situation is Leonard’s health, which, until he’s on a court in a live-game situation, will probably remain a mystery,” Bontemps writes.
