The saga apparently has finally come to an end as the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors have agreed to a trade that will send Spurs’ disgruntled forward Kawhi Leonard to the Raptors for DeMar DeRozan, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

San Antonio will also send Danny Green to Toronto and will receiver Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round draft pick.

A trade call with the teams and the NBA league office is scheduled to begin shortly.

DeRozan has three years and $83 million left on his contract, including an early-termination option for the 2020-21 season.

Leonard has made it clear that he intends to play in Los Angeles once he is able to hit free agency.
