Kawhi completely tanked his trade value so I'm glad that the Spurs were able to get some good from him. Know a lot of the Spurs' fans were on the fence on whether we wanted another star or future assets for Kawhi. With Pop likely retiring within the next few years, it makes sense to acquire a player you can contend with over the next few seasons rather than build for the future. Nobody is beating the Warriors unless there is a major injury but the Spurs could be a top 3 seed now. Losing Danny Green hurts but he has steadily been declining on both ends of the floor and could just come back to SA next year when he's a FA. The Spurs did get a decent big in Poeltl as well, which is an undervalued addition since the only real center the Spurs had was an aging Pau Gasol.
I feel bad for the Raps though, giving up one of the best players in franchise history for having to deal with Kawhi's uncle and not being sure if Kawhi will even play.
