Twitter Reaction: Time to plan the DeRozan statue

NBA insider Leo Rautins weighs in on the Kawhi Leonard acquisition by the Raptors, says Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster know way more than we do, and wouldn’t pull the trigger without knowledge of the team’s direction.

Good morning, sports world. There’s nothing like a blockbuster NBA trade to get the day rolling, right?

The Toronto Raptors have reportedly reached an agreement to acquire San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard. The package heading back to San Antonio is centred around Raptors franchise icon DeMar DeRozan.

You could argue the NBA off-season has created more shocking headlines than the league’s regular season in recent years and this blockbuster deal adds fuel to that fire, to say the least.

As you’d expect, NBA Twitter is going absolutely bananas right now. Here’s some of the best reaction.
