Kawhi Leonard gets a 94 rating from National Basketball Association 2K19

As the world of social media is again fluttering with discussions on how the Spurs core got shattered and on which team won the trade, San Antonio's living legend head coach Gregg Popovich plainly stated that everyone should just turn away from the past. "It's a business and you understand the business, but from a player standpoint, it just sucks".

Before Kawhi Leonard and DeMar DeRozan - the headline pieces in a four-player trade between San Antonio and Toronto on Wednesday - play a single game for their new teams, this much is clear: The Spurs got better, the Raptors are taking a gargantuan risk and the Los Angeles Lakers are going to sit back and see what happens. "Kawhi obviously worked very hard to become the player he is".

DeRozan, 28, who averaged 23.0 points last season, reportedly was assured by Raptors officials during the NBA Summer League he would not be traded.

The Raptors have reportedly been in communication with Leonard's camp since the blockbuster deal and the two-time Defensive Player of the Year is reportedly starting to "warm to the idea" of playing with the franchise in 2018-19, sources close to the situation told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Assuming he stays the entire season, Leonard could get five years and $190 million from Toronto - one year and $50 million more than from anyone else. He played in nine games for the Spurs last season and was barely a factor.

Despite barely playing a year ago, Kawhi Leonard - now of the Toronto Raptors - gets a 94 overall rating from National Basketball Association 2k19.

"Kawhi conducted himself wonderfully while he was here", Popovich said.

"DeRozan gave everything to Toronto, everything they asked him to do from the standpoint of loyalty", Wade said.

Despite being named the NBA's Coach of the Year, Casey was sacked and replaced by assistant Nick Nurse. Even with Leonard, Toronto might not make the Finals. "Are they going to buy in?" the talent guy said.
