Spurs Trading George Hill To Pacers For Kawhi Leonard, According To Reports

San Diego St. Aztecs big man Kawhi Leonard became the highest-drafted player in program history, going No. 15 in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft. As that's pretty new ground, NBA teams have worked to make him more comfortable by sending him to a team whose name also begins with "San." Yes.

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski -- and pretty much everybody else -- is reporting the San Antonio Spurs will send George Hill and some sort of accompaniment to the Indiana Pacers for the rights to Leonard.

San Antonio has been one of the teams most rumored to make a move -- looks like it wasn't all just smoke.
