The Toronto Raptors have just done a blockbuster trade sending their star DeMar DeRozan to the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard won the championship and was named the playoffs MVP with the Spurs in 2014, while DeRozan has been one of the best Raptors of all-time since joining the team in 2009.

Usually trades fire up fans but Canadian Raptor fans are pissed off, because apparently, Leonard doesn’t want to live in the city.

According to a tweet by ESPN reporter Chris Haynes, Leonard has ZERO interest in being a Raptor and representing Toronto. 

And Raptor fans are outraged.  

And it isn't just Raptors fans getting in on this, fans of other teams are just laughing at Toronto's management for trading for someone who doesn't want to play in the city.

The Raptors will also be sending Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick to the Spurs and get Danny Green in addition to Leonard.

But you can imagine there's going to be a lot of drama around the team this year with a player who doesn't want to be in Toronto. 

Maybe the Raptors should buy him the most expensive house currently for sale in Ontario to make his stay more comfortable.
