Kawhi thanks Pop, Spurs fans in farewell letter

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

Though some are more heartfelt and less robotic, thank-you letters by traded players rarely say much significantly.

"There is not a more passionate or dedicated fan base than what I've witnessed in San Antonio", he wrote.

Dez Bryant on Browns visit: WR says he's coming to Cleveland
Bryant is on the invite list, but the 29-year-old pass-catcher initially refused to make contact with the organization. He has also already become a highlight during Dallas' first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

"Through all the ups and downs - I'm glad there were many more ups!"

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.

Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin over remarks
The conversation continued until Benjamin said something to Newton that had Newton gesturing that he was finished with him. That may not be the case anymore, as Newton didn't seem able to say what he wanted when approaching Benjamin in-person.

While Leonard rarely speaks publicly on his intentions, the belief among most pundits is that he wants to join the Los Angeles Lakers.

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.

She had a hand getting started in the industry with a behind-the-scenes job at Good Morning America when she was 16. I'm not going to sit in a makeup chair for an hour and be like, "Then I'll go get the story".

Leonard demanded a trade this summer away from the only team he has known, after seven mostly brilliant seasons in San Antonio.
