The Spurs wanted something approaching fair value. They didn’t get it. Kawhi Leonard is no longer a Spur, but none of the marquee young players tossed around in potential trade returns — Jaylen Brown , Brandon Ingram , Markelle Fultz — are coming to San Antonio. The Spurs settled on a package tha...

San Antonio hasn’t been the same since Tim Duncan retired. Everyone writing obituaries for the death of the San Antonio Spurs As We Knew Them would be wise to double-check their timelines. The Spurs did not die on July 18 when they traded Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan...

We have that and more in Thursday’s NBA newsletter. The Spurs traded Kawhi Leonard to the Raptors for DeMar DeRozan (very) early on Wednesday , ending one of the NBA’s last big summer dramas and creating another. Kawhi didn’t have Toronto on his target list, but one suspects he’ll like it just fi...

As each new cornerstone in the league is moved, we learn again that the NBA is a business. The Raptors traded DeMar DeRozan , a 9-year homegrown, loyal talent who took a paycut in 2016 to stay with the franchise, for Kawhi Leonard on Wednesday morning . It’s a deal that has upside to make the tea...

Yeah, the team knows what it’s doing. Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs were far from friends in their final months together before he forced his way out with a trade . That was no secret. Early on Wednesday, San Antonio shipped him , though not giving Leonard a deal to a team in L.A. as he wished, ins...

If everything holds, L.A. can sign Kawhi next year AND keep its young talent. The Spurs and Raptors are finalizing a deal that will send DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio and Kawhi Leonard to Toronto , and the biggest winner of this whole ordeal could be the Los Angeles Lakers . It’s been merely hours...

Thx for the mmrs. Sports aren’t fair. I don’t care who got the better end of the deal between the Raptors and Spurs , or which team is going to be helped more. The biggest loser in the Kawhi Leonard - DeMar DeRozan trade was friendship, and friendship got robbed. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are...

By trading DeMar DeRozan to the Spurs for Leonard, Toronto is both aiming for higher peaks and allowing a retooling to arrive. We all knew the Toronto Raptors needed real changes this summer after another painful ejection from the NBA playoffs at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavali...

“Be told one thing & the outcome another. Cant trust ‘em.” The Spurs and Raptors are finalizing a deal that would swap Kawhi Leonard for DeMar DeRozan , according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Chris Haynes, and DeRozan appears to be quite upset about it. The 9-year Raptor who’d been with the t...

The Spurs are finally moving Leonard, and the Raptors are suddenly an Eastern Conference contender. At long last, the Spurs and Raptors are finalizing a trade for Kawhi Leonard , according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Chris Haynes . The swap is centered on DeMar DeRozan , who appears extremel...
