Leonard skipping camp means there won't be a reunion of sorts anytime soon between he and head coach Gregg Popovich, who is leading the National Team.

In March, ESPN reported that Leonard grossed less than $500,000 a year in his existing Jordan Brand endorsement deal.

More change is reportedly coming to the Kawhi Leonard camp this summer.

Leonard was one of 35 players invited to the Nevada desert. The news left fans shocked, and some angry that Leonard disregarded Robinson.

For a short time after the trade, word was that Leonard was not interested in playing for the Raptors in 2018-19. This was also observed by his advisers, including his uncle, Dennis Robertson, who saw potential in Leonard as a "top-shelf star and global brand".

In the end, the Raptors ended up acquiring the star swingman from the San Antonio Spurs, but it sounds like the Celtics put together a pretty good package, too. I'd feel it. My agent (Joe Branch) said, "Maybe we should get a second opinion.' I didn't want to because I have full faith and believe in the Spurs" staff.

Leonard appeared in nine games for the Spurs in the 2017-2018 season as he struggled to rehab an injury to his right quadriceps, but according to ESPN, that's the least of companies' concerns. While it's still unsure whether that was indeed the case, Wright speculated that the problems truly started when Leonard had "woke up [one day] and realized he was a superstar in the league".

Kawhi Leonard will have to find a new on-court sneaker when he makes his Toronto Raptors debut, as his Jordan Brand contract is set to expire in October.
