Kawhi Leonard is no longer the face of the Spurs. The Spurs former franchise player wanted to be traded to another this summer. The two-time player of the year was traded to the Toronto Raptors for DeMar DeRozan.
Leonard has finally addressed fans with an open letter he posted to Twitter. “I have been going back and forth the last few weeks trying to figure out the right things to say.” Kawhi wrote. “It comes down to two simple words: THANK YOU!”
