Person close to Kawhi Leonard predicts he won't leave Toronto

DeMar DeRozan

On Friday, Raptors team president Masai Ujiri apologized to DeRozan for leaving him with the impression he would not be traded.

After sleeping on the deal that sent him to San Antonio for a couple of days, DeMar DeRozan thanked Raptors fans in Toronto and across Canada via Instagram on Saturday afternoon.

DeMar DeRozan has bid farewell to Toronto.

According to a report from Jeff McDonald of San Antonio Express-News, Leonard and those who traveled with him grew jealous of how some all-stars used private luxury cars for their excursions while others used standard transportation provided by the National Basketball Association.

DeRozan's first go-around in San Antonio will be one to watch in the trade's aftermath.

DeRozan had said emphatically in the past that he wanted to finish his career with the Raptors.

Under the leadership of DeRozan and All-Star guard Kyle Lowry, the Raptors reached the Eastern Conference finals in 2016. The post included a photo of Leonard with Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster.

After missing out on landing a superstar this offseason with LeBron James joining the Los Angeles Lakers along with Kawhi Leonard recently being sent to the Toronto Raptors in a trade, the most important factor for the Philadelphia 76ers is remembering this team is still in unbelievable shape.

"When you have a chance to get a top-five player, which doesn't come very often, I think you have to jump on it", he said.

For Kawhi Leonard, he's known as being a shy, quiet fella.

Leonard played in just 9 games for the Spurs last season because of injury as his relationship with the team soured.

"[Leonard] didn't express a lack of interest to not play in Canada to me", Ujiri said Friday. Specifically with the Lakers, although playing for the Clippers reportedly has become more of an option as of late for Leonard.

"I think there's a lot of sell here, our team, our culture, our city", Ujiri said.
