Kawhi's camp says there's 'nothing true' to reports of disconnect
Leonard's uncle Dennis Robertson told Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News that Leonard isn't as unhappy with the organization as described in a recent ESPN report from Zach Lowe and Adrian Wojnarowski.
"There is nothing true to that story. Kawhi's camp and the Spurs are how they've always been - doing the right thing for the team and the right thing for Kawhi," Robertson told Young.
The latest from Leonard's camp echoes the party line from Spurs general manager R.C. Buford, who also denied claims that Leonard's prolonged rehab has caused him to be "distant" and "disconnected" from the organization.
"The bottom line is to get Kawhi healthy," Robertson told the Express-News. "Everybody is in agreement there."
