  • The San Antonio Spurs traded beleaguered superstar Kawhi Leonard away to the Toronto Raptors along with Danny Green in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl, and a 2019 pick.
  • After the deal was made official, the Spurs sent both Leonard and Green off with farewell posts from the team’s official Twitter account.
  • Some fans on social media noted the subtle difference between the goodbyes, and believed them to be a shot at Leonard.
