BONUS: Kawhi Leonard is Finally Traded, The Raptors Win Big, DeRozan Heads to the Monastery

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - July 18, 2018 - 49:30

On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver connect for an emergency episode to talk through the many layers of the Kawhi trade. First, they focus on the Kawhi side and why the trade makes sense for both next season's Raptors and the long term outlook in Toronto. Then (12:00): mixed emotions for Raptors fans and DeRozan in the wake of this deal, and whether he'll make another All-Star team in San Antonio. From there (18:00): the Spurs and whether they can surprise some people next season, the murderous West playoff race, and what the past year can teach us about Spurs culture. At the end (38:00): whether Kawhi is a Hall of Famer, whether Tim Duncan should un-retire, the second-best team in the East, and the lost DeRozan takes from Greased Pig Golliver.
