Kawhi Leonard traded to TK

Toronto Raptors

Multiple reporters, including Charania and Haynes, have said that Leonard has "no desire" to play in Toronto, which could complicate the final stages of a deal.

And six minutes later tweeted that Leonard and DeRozan are aware that "a deal may be imminent".

And DeRozan's Instagram activity appeared to indicate frustration with the Raptors' organization.

That's according to ESPN's Chris Haynes, who claims DeRozan was clearly told that he wouldn't be traded.

So... *goodness*, there's a lot to unpack here.

He previously reported that both the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers have cooled their pursuit of the 27-year-old, which leaves Toronto as the frontrunners.

'Open Treason': Trump slammed by media, everywhere but Russian Federation
The president said he has "full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies". Trump said the summit with Putin still "was our most successful visit" on his European trip.

So, we've got unanimous disgust from the primary players involved here.

In being traded to Toronto, Leonard and the Raptors possibly up their chances of competing in the Eastern Conference, returning most of the roster that earned a top playoff seed last season if they can convince Leonard to play for the team.

Leonard has been one of the best two-way players since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2011.

In order for such a trade to work financially, the Spurs may have to move another player with a big contract such as Patty Mills or Danny Green.

Oh, and if the deal falls through (like, because Leonard doesn't want to be there), it would be seem hard for DeRozan and the Raptors to work things out at this point. He led the Raptors with an average of 23 points per game last season.

If he's traded, Leonard would only be able to receive a maximum of $108 million over four years in an extension, as opposed to the five-year $221 million supermax extension the Spurs can offer. Most NBA trades do not happen.
