Kawhi Leonard receives loud boos in San Antonio return

Kawhi Leonard helped the Toronto Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA.

San Antonio Spurs fans were not welcoming to Kawhi Leonard in his return to AT&T Center.

The Spurs played a tribute video for Leonard – who was traded to the Toronto Raptors in the off-season – and the crowd greeted him with a chorus of boos on Thursday.

Moments after the tribute video ended, two-time NBA All-Star Leonard was introduced and he was met with even more jeers.

The San Antonio faithful also booed him loudly during warm-ups.

This is Leonard's first game playing in San Antonio since he was traded to Toronto.

The 27-year-old forward was sent to the Raptors along with Danny Green in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a 2019 first-round pick.

Leonard requested a trade after he was reportedly unhappy with how the Spurs dealt with his rehab from injury.

Spurs fans did cheer Green enthusiastically when he was introduced.
