A Quick Lakers Update...Sort of

So online reports this morning have stated that 2014 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard has been traded to the Toronto Raptors from the San Antonio exchange for Toronto's 4-time NBA All-Star DeMar DeRozan going to Texas. Assuming that Kawhi Leonard keeps true to his word and joins the Los Angeles Lakers as a free agent in summer 2019 (or before the trade deadline next February?), the Spurs clearly emerged as the winners of this deal. And Toronto? Have fun watching your newly-acquired one-year (or less?) rental potentially phoning it in during the 2018-'19 NBA season! Again, this is assuming that Leonard doesn't change his mind and decide to stay with the Raptors after next year. (Considering the fact that Kawhi wanted to move back to his home city of Los Angeles, and San Antonio decided to send him to a team that's over 2,500 miles from L.A. and located out of country instead, I don't see this as likely. Hopefully.) I'm lookin' at you, Paul George... For those of you non-NBA folks reading this, Google the reference.

Happy Hump Day!

Could Kawhi Leonard join forces with LeBron James on the L.A. Lakers as soon as February, 2019? We'll see. Guess who I cropped out of this pic...
