The Toronto Raptors have worked out a blockbuster trade in the NBA sending their star DeMar DeRozan to the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

DeRozan has been a Raptor since 2009 and has become not only one of the best players the team has ever had, but also one of the most beloved.

Which means this trade is causing a lot of heartache for some fans, especially since Leonard doesn’t want to play for the Raptors apparently.

Since the trade went down this morning fans have been posting their tributes to the now former star of the team.  

Orlando Magic player, Terrence Ross, says Toronto needs to build a statue of DeRozan for his years of service to the Raptors.

There's even calls for Drake, a well known Raptors fan, to immortalize DeRozan in song.

Some people are clearly worried about how DeRozan's best friend on the Raptors, Kyle Lowrey is going to take the news of the trade.

And of course, a lot of fans just can't get over the fact that the Raptors actually traded their best player and are angry.

For most people though it's just a sad day to be a Raptors fan.
