Here’s The Latest On A Potential Sixers Trade For Kawhi Leonard

Here’s The Latest On A Potential Sixers Trade For Kawhi Leonard

But as we've noted in every story about him, uncertainties about his health (the quadriceps injury that limited him to nine games this season - not to mention the disagreement between Leonard and the Spurs on whether he was able to play) and his option to become an unrestricted free agent next summer make him an acquisitional risk.

Haynes notes that the Los Angeles Clippers "haven't abandoned pursuit" of Leonard and could potentially trade for him this offseason.

As for Embiid and Simmons, it's obvious why they would be excluded from any trade. However that doesn't stop other teams trying to get their hands on Leonard.

Bartiromo asked him about the historic summit with Kim in Singapore just weeks ago, saying North Korea should be telling the U.S. What did I do, really, when you think of it?" And it is to North Korea's advantage to dismantle very quickly.

According to ESPN, the Lakers have re-engaged the Spurs about a trade package centered around Leonard. After they did not make the trade, George was traded to the Thunder and one year later re-signed with them. James has until late Friday night to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and is watching closely how the Lakers proceed with the Leonard talks. Ainge made a transaction last summer with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving who had wanted out then.

With LeBron James signing a four-year deal with the Lakers, Los Angeles may have gotten more appealing for Leonard, who ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said is focused on the west coast. Fultz was the No. 1 pick in last year's National Basketball Association draft. This is one of several reasons why neither of them may obtain him.

George is in a similar situation as James.

San Antonio has seemingly come to the conclusion that trading Leonard would be the best play to run, but it can not afford to let him go without a reasonable return.

One agent recently suggested to Business Insider that the Spurs should not trade Leonard, barring a mega-offer.

"Plus, Brett Brown and Monty Williams, the new Sixers' assistant coach, have a great relationship with Kawhi Leonard, which has to factor into any decision the Spurs makes".

How do you solve a problem like comedy in the age of Donald Trump? Conan remarked. "Not so good", Colbert responded. "Oh. Fallon asked. "I'm busy having no talent!" Both Fallon and Colbert used the bit as their cold opens on Tuesday.

The Lakers are in no rush to sign the 25th overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, Michigan forward Mo Wagner, to his rookie scale deal, which would allow the Lakers to include his draft rights into a trade package, league sources said. Whether that is true or San Antonio just want to use Philly for leverage is up for debate, but the Sixers are at least at the table. Having history to preclude trade discussions could force things to stall or have the Spurs send Kawhi Leonard to another team.
