Kawhi Leonard To Skip Team USA Minicamp

Kawhi Leonard To Skip Team USA Minicamp

Reacting to a report from the "San Antonio Express-News, ' 'ESPN's" Michael C. Wright said Leonard could have avoided his rift with the Spurs had he spoken up about his issues during the 2016 All-Star Weekend.

There have been plenty of questions surrounding the Kawhi Leonard trade that sent the All-Star to the Toronto Raptors last week: Would he report? But, he added, the club "did a great job" and "did everything they could" when it learned of the injury.

Leonard is no longer on the team, having been dealt with Green to the Raptors in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a 2019 protected first-round draft pick.

"I get an MRI the next day", Green said of the injury suffered December 8 against Boston. Certain days, I'd have bad days.

"I could have got a second opinion, so I see where Kawhi is coming from when he's got his second opinion". They've always done right by me. We get it. Leonard is a man of few words and incredibly reserved (even by Spurs standards), but it says a lot that the two have spoken so few times since Leonard joined the team in 2011.

In addition to Nike, Adidas and Under Armour, Puma Basketball will also be looking to poach some sneaker free agents, as will Chinese-based brands like Li-Ning, Anta and Peak.

A person close to Leonard told Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union-Tribune that he believes Kawhi will fall in love with Toronto and end up re-signing next summer.

Los Angeles and other teams with cap space could offer four years at $141 million; Toronto can reach five years, $190 million. He is a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and the 2014 NBA Finals MVP.
