SAN ANTONIO — A new report indicates when Kawhi Leonard makes his return to San Antonio to face off against his former team.
According to Yahoo Sports' Sham Charania, Leonard will be back in the Alamo City with the Toronto Raptors January 3, 2019.
It's sure to be a loud night at the AT&T Center, based on fan reactions to how Leonard departed the team. Kawhi missed all but nine games last season with a lingering quad injury and because he was unhappy with how the team handled his recover, requested a trade.
In July, San Antonio traded Leonard to the Raptors in exchange for shooting guard DeMar DeRozan and center Jakob Poetl. Danny Green was also included in the trade to Toronto.
The full Spurs schedule has yet to be released, but the NBA has announced its slate of games for Christmas and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. San Antonio is not featured those days.
