The camp of Kawhi Leonard asked the Toronto Raptors about the possibility of trading for either Paul George or Bradley Beal, sources tell Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star.
Masai Ujiri considered the request.
But as Leonard's camp made escalating demands, the Raptors began to believe that his focus was on Los Angeles.
Leonard was in Toronto from Wednesday to Friday and flew back to San Diego on Friday morning on the MLSE plane.
For the last two or three days leading to Leonard's announcement, the Raptors did not believe Leonard was truly serious about re-signing with the team.
