Lowry mum on Raptors, speaks only about USA Basketball

  • Kevin Durant has reportedly improved his relationship with Russell Westbrook

Green and his Spurs teammate Kawhi Leonard have a fresh start together with the Raptors. Leonard possibly was going to use the event as a chance to showcase the status of his recovery.

Leonard reportedly demanded a trade out of San Antonio after he had a tense relationship with the team during his rehab process.

Green noted that he strained his groin against Boston in December, but still played 70 games over the course of the season.

Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green empathized with Kawhi Leonard's desire for a second opinion on his injured quadriceps, after learning recently during an exit physical in San Antonio that he had been playing with a torn groin that went undetected by the Spurs. He went from the quiet superstar poised to lead the San Antonio Spurs for the next decade to the player that no one can figure out. The news left fans shocked, and some angry that Leonard disregarded Robinson.

"I get an MRI the next day", Green said of the injury suffered December 8 against Boston. "They've always been great to me, they've always done right by me, they've always done a hell of a job".

"When I hear him talk about the bitterness and the disrespect and all that type of stuff, it's like, you didn't get traded to frickin' Cleveland".

As recalled by the San Antonio Express-News on Sunday, Leonard originally seemed like the flawless player for a smaller-market team like the Spurs. Reports began emerging of "discord" between the two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year and the Spurs, and while Popovich scoffed at talk of a rare "soap opera" involving his normally drama-free squad, it wasn't long before National Basketball Association insiders were claiming that some of Leonard's teammates were expressing frustration with him and imploring him to return to the lineup. His passed physical, reported Tuesday by ESPN's Brian Windhorst, means that the trade is official, and Leonard's health is no longer the Spurs' problem.

"You know, it's hard to get Kawhi to say three words to you".
