"So I'm sure if Kawhi would have said, 'Hey, I want a Bentley, ' or 'I want this, ' or whatever, the Spurs would have done everything in their power to make that happen for him".

Details of Kawhi Leonard's freakish saga with the San Antonio Spurs last season will probably never emerge which means we'll always wonder how that relationship deteriorated and ultimately became untenable.

Leonard appeared in only nine contests until San Antonio shelved him in January for "an indefinite period of time", which turned out to be the rest of the season.

"I would feel it and they were like, my agent, 'Maybe you should get a second opinion.' I didn't want to, because I have full faith and believe in the Spurs staff", Green said.

Leonard will reportedly spend the week preparing to transition to his new team. "They've always been great to me, they've always done right by me, they've always done a hell of a job".

Danny Green, who was sent to the Raptors with Leonard, and DeMar DeRozan, now with the Spurs, also have passed their physicals.

US farmers hurt by Trump's tariffs to receive emergency aid
Industry groups that represent agriculture, as well as politicians from agricultural states, have criticised the tariffs. He defended his trade policy on Twitter on Tuesday. "Tariffs are the greatest!" the president wrote on Twitter .

"I don't think it was due to ill relationships or bad terms with people - regardless of the situation, it happened..." he said on his "Inside The Green Room" podcast.

That never happened, with Leonard declining to even show up for the Spurs' playoff games while using NY as a base for his medical treatments and recovery efforts.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Kawhi Leonard will not attend USA Basketball mini-camp in Las Vegas next week so he can focus on his transition to his new team, the Toronto Raptors.

As recalled by the San Antonio Express-News on Sunday, Leonard originally seemed like the ideal player for a smaller-market team like the Spurs.

Leonard was dealt to Toronto along with shooting guard Danny Green. Leonard, who missed nearly all of last season with a quad injury, reportedly passed his physical, and is Toronto-bound. He is a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and the 2014 NBA Finals MVP.

"I don't know how you can hate him".
