The Spurs acquired DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a 2019 first round pick for Leonard and Danny Green. The Raptors reportedly refused to include Siakam and OG Anunoby in trade talks for Leonard. “My understanding is they would not trade him,” said Tim Bontemps on The Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective podcast. “No, he was not (available). I don’t think so either,” said Jackie MacMullan.
Denver coach Mike Malone said the league agreed with the Nuggets’ claim that Poeltl’s play has been questionable, although Malone said he didn’t know why it hasn’t resulted in closer scrutiny from game officials. “I think there have been some illegal screens that have been missed, and the response from the league has been that we’re right,” Malone said after Thursday after the Spurs’ 120-103 win in Game 6. “But for some reason, they don’t catch them during the game. Obviously, Jamal got taken out on that play. I don’t know if it was dirty or not. I don’t think Jakob Poeltl is a dirty player, I really don’t, but I have to watch the film to see how that happened and how Jamal went down with that injury.”
