Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich spoke Wednesday about the bombshell trade that sent Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to the Toronto Raptors for a package that involved four-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan.The trade ends a nearly yearlong saga that involved a reported tense relationship between the Spurs and the player once believed to be the future face of the franchise.Popovich lauded Leonard for the his accomplishments during his time with the Spurs. "Kawhi worked very hard to become the player that he is, our staff worked very hard to help him get there and we wish him all the best as he moves on to Toronto," Popovich said. Green was primarily included in the trade for financial reasons, but Popovich said he will be missed."He's been here quite a while and he was a big part of what we do both on and off the court, a great community guy and we are going to miss him very much," Popovich said.In DeRozan, the Spurs get an instant offensive threat into the starting lineup. DeRozan averaged 23 points per game last season for the Raptors. Second-year center Jakob Poetl was also included in the trade to San Antonio."This trade is going to be good for both teams. DeMar is a four-time all-star, he's all-NBA player, a team player, somebody I have respected and watched play for a while now, and we're thrilled to have him here," Popovich said.The Spurs head coach chose not to elaborate on efforts to get Leonard to stay in San Antonio, adding it's time to "move on." He said he spoke to Leonard and Green on the phone when the trade was finalized."Kawhi conducted himself wonderfully while he was here. He helped us win a fifth championship, he was a hard worker all the time," Popovich said. "We wish him well, but at this point it's time to move on. I'm concerned about Jakob, DeMar and our basketball team."

With all the national media attention the border has received in recent months, KSAT 12 is traveling to South Texas with many questions in mind.One of the many questions: What do people who live and/or work in the area think about all the attention? ((SCROLL BELOW FOR RECENT UPDATES)) The media attention of family separations, building the border wall and migrants who have died in the process of entering the United States has put towns such as McAllen, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Falfurrias and much more under a microscope.Much like the old saying goes: To know a person, one must walk a mile in their shoes.KSAT anchor Steve Spriester, digital reporter Adrian Garcia, photojournalist Luis Cienfuegos and executive producer Mario Orellana will be documenting during the course of their journey reporting along the border.(UPDATES MAY BE DELAYED DUE TO INTERNET/CELL COVERAGE)DAY 4 (Wednesday): (2:30 p.m.) Wednesday is the final day of the #KSATBorderJourney: A walk across Brooks County that locals call the "Death March." The KSAT crew is walking the same 25-mile trek across rough terrain that migrants take when they cross the border. It's hot, dry and dangerous in the extreme. This is how we're dressing for our #KSATBorderJourney. We're prepared & have plenty of water. Our walk is just 1/4 of what migrants go through who typically dress & pack up w/ whatever they own #KSATnews pic.twitter.com/y8TQE6J4eS-- Adrian Garcia (@KSATadrian) July 18, 2018 #ksatborderjourney continues with a trek across parts of Brooks County. Live reports at 5 & 6 #ksatnews #theline A post shared by KSAT News (@ksatnews) on Jul 18, 2018 at 7:56am PDT During our now 3 mile walk, we've seen barrels like this one with "AGUA" written on them. Inside, ranchers & groups put jugs filled with water. They have these poles right next to them signaling to migrants of nearby water #KSATBorderJourney pic.twitter.com/I5t7eAZMoF-- Adrian Garcia (@KSATadrian) July 18, 2018 When traveling at night, Brooks County deputy Don said migrants paint their jugs (much like this one) BLACK so it doesn't reflect in the darkness #KSATBorderJourney pic.twitter.com/iSsdhWOrTk-- Adrian Garcia (@KSATadrian) July 18, 2018 We hit a barrier but all five of us managed to climb over the fence & are continuing the #KSATBorderJourney.

San Antonio police are trying to find anyone who may have witnessed unusual activity around a Southeast Side home where a woman was shot Tuesday night.The victim, Maria Gunther-Ramos, 41, was grazed by a bullet fired into the kitchen of her home around 8:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Cosgrove Street."It doesn't appear it's going to be a random shooting," said police spokeswoman, Sgt.

It's still an ongoing investigation."According to officers at the scene, Gunther-Ramos had been involved in an argument or dispute earlier in the day with a man she knew.Police, however, said no one inside the home saw the shooter."We do know that there have been several calls to that location within the past year," Ramos said. "Our detectives are looking into the possibility of whether she knew this individual."Among those who were at the home were two young children who were in the kitchen with the victim.No one else was wounded.Gunther-Ramos was taken to a hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening wound.Investigators plan to scour the neighborhood to look for witnesses or surveillance video.Anyone who has information about the shooting is asked to call the San Antonio Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 210-224-STOP (7867).

Customers at a Texas steakhouse have been banned from the restaurant after they left a racist message in lieu of a tip for their waiter. Khalil Cavil, a waiter at a Saltgrass Steak House in Odessa, shared a photo of a receipt from one of his customers this past weekend. Instead of tipping Cavil, the customer wrote "We don't tip terrorist" at the top of the receipt and circled Khalil's name. "I share this because I want people to understand that this is racism, and this hatred still exists," Cavil wrote on Facebook. Saltgrass is standing behind its employee and has since banned the customer.…

The first act to sign with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger’s 604 Records imprint in 2001, Theory of a Deadman has pretty much carried the torch of ’90s alternative rock in the vein of, well, Nickelback. And even though they haven’t really done much to contribute to the genre, they do what they do well, which secured them a Juno Award for best new group in 2003 and got them eight Top 10 hits on the US Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including three No. 1 hits – “Bad Girlfriend,” “Lowlife” and “Rx (Medicate).” $27, Fri July 20, 8pm, The Aztec Theatre, 104 N.
