Cleveland Cavs Made Calls To Spurs About Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio — Should the Sixers have interest

Back in April, Mark Heisler of the Orange County Register wrote that Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has a cardinal rule not to help teams in the Western Conference. But for that to happen, the Lakers would have to trade someone of value. If Leonard was perfectly healthy and had no concerns surrounding him, the asking price for him could be young talent plus several first-round picks. The news of Kawhi's unhappiness hurts his trade value and if he decides to tell possible trade partners that he will not be resigning with them, it will damage his trade value even more.

NEW POWERHOUSE? Kawhi Leonard may end up with the LA Lakers, which can assemble a new superteam with incoming free agents LeBron James and Paul George also linked to join the glamour squad. LeBron is looking for another piece.

The idea of playing Leonard alongside James is enticing - it would certainly solve Cleveland's problem of a lack of supporting cast - but keeping James seems to be a long shot at this point. Sheridan speculates that Terry Rozier could headline a package of players whom Danny Ainge would send to San Antonio, but the C's would have to make the money work if a potential trade didn't include one of their $20-plus million players. The answer is yes, but their bench would suffer. At worst, the Cavs get one more year of contention with those two together. The Oklahoma City media reports that Thunder management is optimistic he will re-sign there.

But the truth is, the Cavaliers don't really have much to offer to the Spurs that would entice them into doing a deal.

"They've thrown him under the bus by saying he's ready to go", the source said, adding: "In my opinion, they should have never publicly said he was ready to go". The Cavs would have Leonard on their roster for the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season, but what about beyond that?

The Lakers weren't the only team in LA to have interested in the 2016 MVP runner-up. Freeing themselves of the Deng contract and renouncing rights. will give them enough space to do whatever they please. A superteam in LA is very reasonable and doable for the Lakers this offseason, it will just take some work on the part of Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson.
