The Spurs Reportedly Won’t Trade Kawhi Leonard Until This Happens

Where will Kawhi Leonard end up? A breakdown of all the possibilities

For that reason, both the Lakers and Clippers are believed to have concerns about going all in for Leonard after he practically missed an entire season with his injury, according to the L.A. Times.

Because of a trade deadline deal with the Cavaliers, the Lakers have enough cap space to absorb two "max" slots, and are interested in Paul George and James. As reported by Chris Sheridan of GetMoreSports.com, Leonard won't be traded to either of the Los Angeles teams or anywhere else in the Western Conference, if and when he is traded.

Swinging a deal for Leonard seems unlikely on the surface for Cleveland.

For a source closer to the situation, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News lists four potential trade partners: the Los Angeles Lakers, Clippers, Boston and Philadelphia.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs dribbles the ball against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on February 13, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Any offer Cleveland might make would have to start with the No.8 overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft. As of now, the Cavaliers are still looking to draft who LeBron likes and still go after big name players like Kawhi Leonard among others. "Kevin Love has a $24 million deal for 2018-19 and a $25 million player option for 2019-20", Pluto explained.

Should the Los Angeles Lakers go all-in for Kawhi Leonard?

The 26-year-old only featured in nine games this season as he battled with a right quad injury.

As one of the elite two-way players in the league, the Spurs will demand a significant package in return for their star.

James knows all-too-well how good Leonard is, having seen him win the 2014 NBA Finals MVP award when the Spurs eliminated the Miami Heat in five games. As you might expect, the Philadelphia 76ers (+300) are just behind the C's, followed by Leonard staying put with the Spurs (+500).
