  • King A trade for Kawhi Leonard is a gamble worth taking for the Celtics

Now, if the Lakers were able to acquire Leonard or George, LeBron might me more inclined to the Lakers, but if not, the Clippers, if they somehow manage to get enough cap space, is a plausible destination for LeBron.

Kawhi Leonard next team odds: Where could the National Basketball Association star go next? However, now is a chance for the Raptors, under new head coach Nick Nurse, to create a new look team featuring Kawhi Leonard.

Working out a deal for Leonard would be a tough ask for Cleveland.

The ESPN report says that Leonard has his eye on playing in Los Angeles, preferably for the Lakers.

Leonard played in only nine games for the Spurs last season, largely because of a enigmatic quadriceps injury. They could still make the offer to Leonard before honoring his wishes for a trade. Furthermore, it's likely that LeBron James is leaving Cleveland as a free agent this Summer and there's no way Leonard would re-sign after the 2018-19 season without the 4x NBA MVP by his side.

Not only that, Leonard now reportedly wants out of San Antonio, with the Lakers being his preferred landing spot.

Harris and one of their first-round picks on Thursday night would be a starting point for the Clippers in any trade talks involving Leonard.

Spurs' Popovich, Leonard meet ahead of National Basketball Association draft
He is eligible to sign a five-year, $219 million super maximum contract with the Spurs this summer. Leonard originally did not want to sit down with the Spurs coach, according to the report .

The Lakers could include future draft picks as well, but other teams could feasibly put together offers just as good or better.

James and Leonard being on the same team does seem a possibility.

The latest reports offer strong support of that indication, as Leonard and San Antonio appear to have burned a bridge that can't be repaired.

The 26-year-old former All-Star has averaged 16.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game over his seven-year career.

Usually, after trade requests, there's a flurry of rumors about where a player might go and what teams are interested in that player.

Ganguli goes on to write, "While the Lakers are open to trading any player on their roster, how much they are willing to give up depends on their confidence in his health".
