Report Kawhi Leonard has been'clear that he plans to be a Laker

On Wednesday, the Toronto Raptors effectively ended the tenure of the beloved player when they traded him to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Kawhi Leonard.

In an Instagram story posted early Wednesday morning, DeRozan seemed to indicate what sources had told The Washington Post previously: that he and his camp had been told he wouldn't be traded this summer.

The band said: "We all felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio". Exactly ten years later down to the week, " Here We Go Again " is gaining the same positive attention it got a decade ago.

The deal sends All-Star swingman DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio, even though he was reportedly told by Raptors executives during the recent NBA Summer League that he would not be traded this summer.

From the moment Leonard made clear his desire for a trade out of San Antonio, the Spurs have taken a patient, deliberate approach to finding a resolution. There's also little chance Leonard would sit out an entire season after playing in just nine games previous year, though it's unclear how much his quad injury had to do with him not playing. He was key to Toronto winning 59 games and securing the No. 1 seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs last season. The combination of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan was proven to be insufficient at powering the Raptors to the Finals. Can't trust em. Ain't no loyalty in this game. A Los Angeles kid himself - born and raised in Compton - he never pushed to go home, instead becoming incredibly active in the community off the court as well as being a four-time All-Star, two-time All-NBA player on it. A four-time All-Star, DeRozan holds career averages of 19.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 675 games over nine National Basketball Association seasons.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Kawhi Leonard is headed to the Toronto Raptors in a trade that will shakeup their roster. In contrast, Leonard's current contract obligates him only to the coming season (at about $20 million). This marks the second major move of the off-season for the Raptors as Toronto fired Coach of the Year Dwane Casey. The 27-year-old averaged 25.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 49 percent from the floor during the 2016-17 season. If he chooses not to exercise that option, he would become an unrestricted free agent and he has insisted that he wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Ibaka will be 30 next season and in the a year ago of his contract.
