According to reports, the San Antonio Spurs are trading Kawhi Leonard to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for All-Star DeMar DeRozan. Some feel that the Spurs getting an All-Star caliber player with very little leverage is a steal and made the team more dangerous. Others feel the Raptors are a great place for the low-key Leonard, and they unloaded a player that was unlikely to re-sign with the team once his contract is over. What do you think? 🏀

The Raptors traded arguably the team's best player for a one-year rental who reportedly has zero desire to play in Toronto. The Spurs, on the other hand, receive a first-round draft pick, a solid young big man, and an All-Star. The Spurs fleeced the Raptors.

The Raptors could have given up much more to get a former Finals MVP. Instead, they gave up a player who the team is pumping a lot of money into and isn't considered an elite player, unlike LeBron James or Stephen Curry. Toronto now has an MVP-caliber player with a chip on his shoulder for at least a year. Not a bad trade.
