NBA trade news Raptors GM Masai Ujiri has taken a gamble on trading for Kawhi Leonard

It's interesting to note that while Leonard said he's "looking forward to the next chapter" of his career, he didn't specifically mention his new city, or his new team. THANK YOU Pop I'll always be grateful for my growth under your guidance. Leonard gives a shoutout to his teammates "over my seven years in the National Basketball Association".

Leonard was traded to Toronto last month in a deal that sent him and Danny Green to the Raptors, with guard DeMar DeRozan, center Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick going back to San Antonio. "I'll never forget what we have shared and accomplished together", Leonard wrote.
DeRozan openly criticized Masai Ujiri, claiming the Raptors president promised he wouldn't trade him.

Shortly after a meeting between Leonard and Popovich, the Spurs moved the two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year to the Raptors.
Leonard, if healthy, would give Toronto one of the best two-way players in the National Basketball Association and a true bonafide superstar. The 27-year old forward only appeared in nine games last season due to injury, but all signs point to him being fully recovered and ready to go when the 2018-19 season gets underway.
