Leonard will reportedly spend the week preparing to transition to his new team.

Green noted that he strained his groin against Boston in December, but still played 70 games over the course of the season. "[It says] slight strain, take a couple weeks off".

Shooting guard Danny Green said that he played for San Antonio with a groin tear in 2017-18, but it was undetected by the Spurs until an end-of-season physical, he said on his Inside the Green Room with Danny Green podcast.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly engaged and fans are crying
While neither Priyanka nor Jonas have made an official announcement, U.S. media widely reported about their engagement. Chopra tweeted to Lovato just two minutes after Jonas did. "The reason is very very special", Zafar tweeted.


"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", Lucic added.

It'll be interesting to see if Green can get the answers he wants before they embark on a new journey together in Toronto.

Camerota added, "They don't want the public to see that anymore, so they have taken that out of the official record of what happened".


The Spurs also received Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round draft pick in the deal. "They've always been great to me, they've always done right by me, they've always done a hell of a job". Despite his many accolades, which include two Defensive Player of the Year awards and the 2014 NBA Finals MVP award, Leonard carried himself in a similarly "stoic" manner as the Spurs' former franchise player, Tim Duncan, and mostly focused on his game, with little regard for his celebrity status. 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.

Either Leonard, who normally is reserved and soft-spoken, didn't want to tell his teammates that he didn't want to go to war with them, or the rift between the star and the Spurs' brass was much worse than anyone initially knew.

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. "Just because Kawhi got a second opinion, you can't knock him for that".
