After a hectic few weeks of rumors about San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard not being happy and his future in San Antonio in limbo, Leonard finally addressed the topic.

The often quiet Spurs star spoke during the team's recent practice and had this to share which should ease nerves of Spurs fans across the globe.

Leonard is scheduled to come back sometime this month and has only played nine games this season as he was rehabbing his right quadriceps injury that has hampered him since the offseason.

Although this is great to hear for the team, the Spurs will have to discuss his contract-extension this summer and the "Super Max" deal the team can offer him. In addition, smooth over any reported rift between the two sides.

The Spurs are set to start a grueling 3-game road trip and will face off against the West's best over the next week.
