Kawhi Leonard: NBA insider makes BOMBSHELL trade prediction for Spurs star

Kawhi Leonard wants to be traded

Even though the Spurs likely won't want to trade Leonard to the Lakers, Los Angeles would be able to come up with a good package to send back due to their strong young core.

Still, the biggest factor in a trade scenario may a Spurs' desire to keep Leonard out of the Western Conference and avoid building yet another superteam they would have to take down.

All of Leonard's nine appearances with the Spurs this season were prior to the All-Star break, none of them coming after January 13.

Kawhi Leonard isn't concerned about missing out on the supermax, sources tell ESPN. "Essentially, the Sixers would be risking three assets because they trust Leonard".

The Suns beat writer's conclusion on the matter left no room for doubt: "This much is certain: The Suns will not trade their No. 1 pick for Leonard". "Now that Leonard reportedly wants out, anything is possible". But Popovich and Leonard have reached out to each other on numerous occasions in recent weeks.

He suggested that if the Switch's install base grows big enough, EA would more seriously consider bringing the game there. In addition, Origin Access Premier subscribers will still get the 10-percent discount on any Origin purchase they make.

The San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard pauses during their game against the Clippers Thursday. After all, the Lakers are among the leading suitors for LeBron James and perhaps Paul George, another Southern Californian who would like to return.

If the Spurs are presented with two similar options from, for example, the Lakers and the Boston Celtics, accepting the Celtics deal would make the most sense.

Additionally, it's possible Leonard and the Spurs could settle their differences before the National Basketball Association draft Thursday and he could sign an extension in the coming weeks. While San Antonio was in the playoffs, losing in the first round to eventual repeat champion Golden State, Leonard was rehabbing in NY - which meant that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, when asked for the situation, deferred all comment to "Kawhi and his group". Some claim that it was a dirty play, but nonetheless, Leonard was out for some time.

One source familiar with the Spurs said the chasm between the Spurs and Leonard's medical opinions was unusual.
