76ers weighing trade packages for Kawhi Leonard

However, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com has shot down that assumption as there is no certainty that Leonard's arrival to the Los Angeles Lakers would seal James' decision to join the franchise this summer.

"The Spurs have wanted to find a way to fix the franchise's relationship with Leonard, but an overwhelming Lakers offer could convince San Antonio to part with its franchise star, league sources said". Having hoped they could fix the relationship with their best player and sign him to a long-term contract, the team now seems prepared to make a deal for the right offer.

That will most likely include multiple young players and draft picks in return for the two-time Defensive Player of the Year.

ESPN reports that the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers and LA Clippers have made offers to San Antonio for Kawhi.

If Ingram or Kuzma headline a trade, either one can replace the production Leonard left behind.


San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard has reached out to LeBron James, informing the 33-year-old superstar that he wants to play alongside him, a source told Yahoo Sports. Josh Hart, who was taken at the end of the 2017 first round, could also be included in a potential trade.

The Spurs have an interesting offseason ahead, with the chance for a roster overhaul from one trade.

In terms of value and getting Leonard out of the conference, it makes sense that the Spurs are angling to set the price high in talks with Boston.

This could indicate that the Celtics are willing to part with Jaylen Brown and/or their cache of 2019 first-round picks in order to land Leonard. But based on previous behavior, the Celtics are unlikely to overpay for Leonard. Philadelphia views the situation very similarly to the end of Paul George's tenure in IN 12 months ago: The Spurs have a fractured relationship with their star and Leonard's camp has publicly postured for San Antonio to trade him.
