Leonard, who was drafted by the Spurs in 2011, reportedly made it clear to San Antonio in June that he wanted to be traded.
The details of the trade were still being worked out early Wednesday, but centered on Leonard and DeRozan.
The Toronto Raptors have agreed to trade their perennial All-Star DeMar DeRozan to the San Antonio Spurs in a package deal that will see disgruntled star Kawhi Leonard come back the other way. 1-20 and will become two second-round picks after one year, per Wojnarowski.
One additional wrinkle: Leonard, DeRozan and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich are all scheduled to be part of Team USA's minicamp next week in Las Vegas. Another piece had to be included from San Antonio's end to make a deal involving DeRozan work, and Green became an easy choice on an expiring contract.
The relationship between the two-time all-star and the Spurs was reportedly strained of late, leading to a trade request. The risk here is huge, both that Leonard walks at the end of 2018-19 and heads to the Los Angeles Lakers and that Leonard doesn't return to his previous form after nearly an entire year off due to a mysterious quad injury.

Poeltl, a 22-year-old centre, averaged 6.9 points and 4.8 rebounds as a key bench player for Toronto last season. Leonard is a superstar two-way player, and LeBron James is now out of the East.
Upon hearing the news, Leonard and DeRozan didn't seem all that excited.
During the 2016-17 season, he averaged a career-best 25.5 points and was third in the MVP voting.
Mayor John Tory spoke about DeRozan, who led the Raptors in scoring in each of the last five seasons, at a press conference on Wednesday. He still qualifies for a five-year, $219 supermax contract. The Raptors take a shot at a ring and winning Leonard over to their team, if that fails and he bolts they start a rebuild (they also didn't give up young players they really like such as OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam). DeRozan is signed through the 2019-2020 season with a player option for the following season, so Toronto would have been assured of having him under team control for at least two more years.
