Kawhi Leonard spoke to the media for the first time in weeks after the Spurs' practice on Wednesday.

Leonard said he wants to remain with the Spurs for his entire career.

Leonard's status with the franchise has been uncertain as he deals with a lingering quad injury amid reports of a strain in his relationship with the front office.

"Everything was done as a group," Leonard said of him seeking second opinions. "I don't feel like nothing was friction. I talk to Pop (Gregg Popovich) every day. He knows what the progression were. He knew what I was doing the whole entire time, as well as the front office. We made a group decision, so it was me just going out and saying, 'I am going to go out and do this thing.' "

Leonard will be eligible for a supermax contract this offseason.

Leonard also told the media that he still intends to play this season.

"Soon. I don't have a set date right now," Leonard said. "I just have to keep doing what I'm doing. The progression that I am making has been great. I just have to keep doing what I'm doing."
