The Toronto Raptors have agreed to acquire Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green from the San Antonio Spurs for DeMar Deorzan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first round pick. The first round pick is protected 1-20 in 2019 and becomes two second round picks if it doesn't convert.
A trade call with the league office to finalize the trade is set for Wednesday, sources said.
The Raptors and Spurs have been discussing a trade for about two weeks.
Both DeRozan and Leonard are reportedly unhappy with the move. Sources tell Chris Haynes that Leonard has no interest in playing for the Raptors.
In a story posted on his Instagram page on Wednesday morning, DeRozan wrote, "Be told one thing & the outcome another. Can't trust em. Ain't no loyalty in this game. Sell you out quick for a little bit of nothing... Soon you'll understand... Don't disturb..."
Leonard has been clear he plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency in 2019.
Adrian Wojnarowski explained Toronto's thinking on trading for Leonard.
"There's no question this deal comes with great risk for Toronto," said Wojnarowski. "In the end, they didn't feel like they were good enough with the team they had to beat Boston, maybe even beat Philly."
Wojnarowski added the Raptors hope to convince Leonard to sign long-term and will likely pivot to a rebuild if he leaves.
