NIKE, Jordan Brand To Cut Ties With Kawhi Leonard

But as Lowe also mentioned, the Spurs aren't willing to go into a full rebuild at this point, which would explain their decision to take Toronto's offer which centered around DeMar DeRozan.

Leonard last played on January 13; he sat out the rest of the season to manage a quad injury.
