San Antonio Spurs: DeMar DeRozan sought advice from Drake after trade

Nice words

San Antonio's newly acquired star guard has reportedly pulled out from participating in the Basketball Without Borders campaign and therefore will not be playing in the upcoming NBA Africa Game, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes. Leonard had been expected to attend the minicamp, but Haynes' report represents a change of plans.

One week ago today, the San Antonio Spurs finally parted with disgruntled All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard by sending him (and guard Danny Green) to the Toronto Raptors.

"Everybody knows I'm the most low-maintenance person in the world. Just let me know, so I can prepare myself for whatever my next chapter is, and I didn't get that".

Um, no, because all summer through the talks we had - through the talks he had with my agent - you know, it seemed like I was in that discussion of moving forward with the team. I took pride in everything when it came to Canada.

"No question. I mean, when you use the word "family", "brother" or whatever, things other people use lightly ... for me, once you use that term, I stick by that term. It was what I needed". He has a lot of great memories. "My issue is with how I was dealt with, with this one individual, what I was told from this one individual, and how things were handled with that".

"I'm going to start from the bottom, to show why I've been the player I've been, but this time, with a whole different level of "I don't care about nothing else".

During a press conference at the summit, Trump called Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling a "disaster".

"I put it all and laid it all out there".

"Just this whole transition of making this move, it kind of makes you look back at your career in the sense of what points you could've been better at, how you could have been better at it, the success that you had, the failures that you had", DeRozan said. Come on, man, that's an honour.

The 28-year-old also promised Spurs fans that he'll be playing with a different edge next year.

"A guy that's been proven to prove himself time and time again - this time around having the biggest chip on his shoulder ever".
