Leonard finally addressed the media at a jam-packed news conference, the first time he's spoken publicly since the blockbuster trade that sent DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio. He will become an unrestricted free agent after the season.
While Raptors fans certainly would have loved for Leonard to say he plans on being in Toronto for the rest of his career, he was much more reserved in his response.
"Excited, knowing I'm coming to a great organization and a great city that loves basketball", Leonard said of his initial reaction to the deal. "I came here with an open mind".

At the end of the day, the Raptors were able to acquire the services of one of the best players in the league today. "I always ride or die for my teammates", he said, adding that his relationship with DeRozan is "bigger than basketball".
