Kawhi Leonard seriously considering participating in US basketball camp

Even if they only get him for a year, they are going nowhere with their current roster and with Leonard, Boston coming out of the East is much less of a sure thing.

The Toronto Raptors could be the team in the best position to acquire Kawhi Leonard in a trade with the San Antonio Spurs.

The Spurs have reportedly fielded calls from several teams interested in trading for Leonard, but a deal has not been reached, largely in part due to teams not willing to trade for the all-star forward with the public knowledge he wants to leave to Los Angeles next summer via free agency. Leonard is now one of 35 players that is in the pool for possible selection for the 12-man roster.

Kawhi Leonard could be back on the court soon playing for coach Gregg Popovich, just not wearing Spurs colors.

However, the Lakers' pursuit of Leonard has not dissuaded other teams from making a pitch for the two-time Defensive Player of the Year - but a new ESPN report revealed the impact Leonard's uncertain future has had on the offers the Spurs have been fielding.

Donald Trump ‘Snubbed’ By Prince Charles and Prince William
Prince Philip - who retired from public engagements a year ago - is also said to have snubbed the occasion. Other sources denied a snub, saying it was always planned for "Trump to meet exclusively with the queen".

As examples, no Blazers package includes Damian Lillard or C.J. McCollum, league sources said.

If he's traded, Leonard would only be able to receive a maximum of $108 million over four years in an extension, as opposed to the five-year $221 million supermax extension the Spurs can offer.

Still, the bidding war among Boston, Philadelphia and the Lakers never materialized.

Second, if he plays, it's an opportunity for Leonard to demonstrate he's fully recovered (or close to it) after missing all but nine games last season to do a nagging right quad injury - the diagnosis, timelines and subsequent treatment of which is centre stage in the Spurs-Leonard divorce proceedings. That means no Kyrie Irving, no Gordon Hayward, no Al Horford, and certainly no Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum. "San Antonio has been determined in demanding a sizable return on Leonard".
