Kawhi Leonard is a man of few words, and that's not an act.

Whether it's with the media, his teammates or his coaches, Leonard doesn't have a lot to say. However, he did text Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse about his decision to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, and what he said was not a shock.

While Nurse was at a concert with one of his assistant coaches, he received a text from Kawhi and it featured just three words: "I'm going home."

It would've been classier if Leonard actually picked up the phone and called Nurse to tell him he was signing with Los Angeles, but are we surprised that he didn't want to actually talk? Of course, the text didn't even say which LA franchise it was, as both were heavily courting him.

While I'm sure Nurse was pretty bummed out about the news of his star player signing with the Clippers, the Raptors can't be mad at Kawhi. In his lone season he brought the franchise their first title and helped put Nurse on the map as one of the best coaches in the league.
