Kawhi coming to toronto

Raptors are going for it. I approve even if it’s just one year.

He's a great player but he's also a head case. He really wanted to go home to LA but Elbron squelched that.

If Tronna gets the great player, it was a great trade. If they get the head case, they're screwed.

I'm a big fan of his, so I hope he pulls his head out of his ass.

He’ll be motivated even if it’s just for a year.

Leonard’s not a fan, either … and by one, he might be thinking about taking extreme measures to register his displeasure at being shipped up north. From Sean Deveney of the Sporting News:

Leonard and his agents let it be known that Leonard wanted to be traded to Los Angeles, and he owns some leverage there — Leonard can be a free agent next summer, and he could simply sign with the Lakers, who have cap space available, in 12 months.
And, league sources told Sporting News, Leonard has no interest in playing for the Raptors. There have been indications that he would sit out the entire season if necessary, and though that step would be drastic and unprecedented in today’s game, Toronto has forced the situation into uncharted territory by acquiring a player who has made it clear he does not want to be there.
Kawhi just not showing up would be something of a nuclear option

That’s nice but that 12 months away. He has every incentive to play well if he wants to play with Kenton next year.

Or have a gm diss players with burner accounts? That’s another strategy.

He is a profesional. Probably he will try to do his best but not exactly a special motivation
Prost!

His motivation will be having a career year in his contract year, and then sign a max contract next off season with another team.

It looks like Tronna got the head case.

I do love how San Antonio got payback on the idiot for going rogue all last year.

He's going to find himself blackballed by the GMs, and his value crashing, if he keeps this shit up.

He should talk to Cousins about how much that would likely cost him.
