Kawhi Leonard has finally broken his silence.

On Tuesday, Leonard thanked the Spurs organization, head coach Gregg Popovich, his former teammates and the team’s fans in a letter via the San Antonio-Express News.

The star forward, along with fellow forward Danny Green, was traded to the Raptors in July in return for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick.

Leonard played in nine games for the Spurs in 2017-18, before sitting out the remainder of the season with a quad injury.
