Raptors close to acquiring a very unhappy Kawhi Leonard

Magic Johnson

But it looks as though a deal between the San Antonio Spurs and the Raptors centred around Leonard and DeRozan could be set to be completed in the near future. The Philadelphia 76ers were reportedly unwilling to include Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid or Markelle Fultz in a deal for Leonard, instead offering up their own collection of draft picks. Wojnarowski reports that the sides have been discussing the deal for week, though the specifics of a trade aren't outlined in any report.

Charania is reporting that DeRozan, who signed a five-year, $139 million contract with the Raptors in 2016, has already "expressed displeasure toward a possible move" after becoming aware of the possibility on Tuesday night. After only playing nine games last season because of a quad injury, Leonard made it clear he wanted to be traded, and that he wanted to play for the Los Angeles Lakers when he becomes a free agent after next season.

Juan Martin Del Potro scraps past Simon to set up Nadal clash
Nadal is bidding to win his third Wimbledon title and his second Grand Slam of the year, having secured the French Open in June. Del Potro bounced back from a set down against his opponent to claim a closely-contested tie-break in the second.

Wojnarowski adds that Ujiri will not be getting any assurances, and that this is a bit on his ability to sell Leonard on Toronto. Of course, the article makes sure to say "combination of" and doesn't suggest all of those pieces would be included in the deal. Can' trust em. Ain't no loyalty in this game. "Soon you'll understand... Don't disturb..."

Sources close to DeRozan told ESPN's Chris Haynes that DeRozan met with Toronto brass in Las Vegas during summer league and was told he would not be traded. DeRozan was told he would not be traded during a meeting with members of Toronto's front office at summer league in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes, so his latest Instagram story makes a lot of sense beyond the obvious frustration with being sent away after almost a decade with the franchise.
