Kawhi Leonard was selected by the Indiana Pacers with the 15th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. But according to ESPN Insider Chad Ford, Leonard is being traded to the Spurs for guard George Hill.

Ford tweeted the news about two minutes after Leonard was selected. It seems to me that the
Spurs are definetly the “winners” of this trade. Leonard is a great athlete and has the largest hands in the 2011 draft class. This makes him an obvious threat on the offensive and defensive boards.
