Philadelphia 76ers: 3 questions surrounding reported offer for Kawhi Leonard

What James will do remains to be seen, but a number of reports have LeBron eyeing a possible move to the Los Angeles Lakers, on the contingency that he could entice another superstar to join him.

Could the two best players in the National Basketball Association team up in Los Angeles? The Lakers, the franchise Leonard wants to be traded to, did not have an encouraging initial conversation with the Spurs, ESPN reported recently.

Furthermore, Vardon adds that James decision will not be affected by the future of Kawhi Leonard, whether he's traded to the Lakers, another team, or staying in San Antonio.

As Chuck just mentioned to me offline, the Celtics could just be driving up the price for Kawhi so the Lakers can gut their team for him.

U.S. says India talks 'a priority' after postponing twice
Haley, a member of Trump's cabinet, said the postponement of the meeting in Washington had nothing to do with any policy issues. Last week, New Delhi raised duties on USA farm products in retaliation against Trump's tariff hikes on steel and aluminium.

Furthermore, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Spurs are "fully engaged in trade talks with several teams on Kawhi Leonard", including the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers - Kawhi's team of choice. But one star player apparently got an early start. With a potential LeBron James acquisition as a result of a Leonard trade, it puts pressure on Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka to get something done.

Kawhi Leonard has reached out to James, expressing interest in playing together, according to a report from Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz.

While the Celtics certainly have the assets to complete a Leonard trade, they are in the same position as most teams.

Leonard, who can become an unrestricted free agent next summer, missed all but nine games last season due to a quad injury. The 20-year-old is fresh off a promising rookie season and an even more impressive playoff run. With San Antonio believed to be uninterested in Lonzo Ball, the Lakers have three other intriguing young players - Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart - plus their future first-round picks to include in a deal. The Spurs are seeking more in return, and it's hard to believe that one unproven player and a future draft pick that might be close to a second-rounder would be almost enough.
