Sources describe Leonard and his camp as "distant" and "disconnected" from the organization. Beyond the current rehab, there are issues that need to be discussed to repaired between Leonard and the Spurs.
RC Buford rejected the notion that there are issues between Leonard and the Spurs.
"There is no issue between the Spurs organization and Kawhi," Buford said. "From Day 1 all parties have worked together to find the best solutions to his injury."
Leonard has played in just nine games this season.
