DeMar DeRozan Expresses Anger At Being Traded To Spurs on Instagram

DeRozan Leonard NBA

"Toronto and San Antonio have been talking about the trade for two weeks, and several incarnations of packages have been discussed, league sources said".

Other players involved in the trade were informed Wednesday morning, and a call with the league is expected to finalize the decision later today.

The deal sends All-Star swingman DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio, even though he was reportedly told by Raptors executives during the recent NBA Summer League that he would not be traded this summer. 1-20 and will become two second-round picks after one year, per Wojnarowski.

Leonard and DeRozan are clearly the centerpieces of the deal, and it's been reported neither player is thrilled about being on the move to their new team.

The phone is armed with a 3060mAh battery, but the company did not mention the presence of fast charging at the launch event. The phone has only been launched in China as of now, and HMD global has not announced any plans for a global release.

The trade has been in the works for more than a week. The risk here is huge, both that Leonard walks at the end of 2018-19 and heads to the Los Angeles Lakers and that Leonard doesn't return to his previous form after nearly an entire year off due to a mysterious quad injury. In the Raptors' case, James left the conference, and a superstar became available at a price that didn't significantly hurt the team.

Leonard, 27, will be a free agent after the 2018-19 season, and Wojnarowski reports that the small forward "has been clear that he plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency next summer".

Both DeRozan and Leonard are scheduled to appear in Las Vegas next week at a USA Basketball training camp - one that will be led by Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. Leonard stopped going to games late in the regular season and was not on the bench for any of the team's five playoff games against champion Golden State in the first round. He signed a five-year deal in 2015 worth more than $90 million. With a desire to leave the Spurs, San Antonio has been trying to get a deal done that would bring them a good return of talent for Leonard.

During the 2016-17 season, Leonard averaged a career-best 25.5 points a game and was third in the MVP voting. The contract does include an early-termination option for the 2020-21 season.
