Spurs will not trade Kawhi Leonard to Western Conference team

Although it had been brewing for some time, Leonard's reported wish to be dealt away from the San Antonio Spurs has had almost all onlookers feverishly delving into ways in which their team can acquire the two-time Defensive Player of the Year.

While he may lose out slightly if he leaves San Antonio, he would make far more in marketing in Los Angeles and could form the best super team in National Basketball Association history. Pluto noted that Leonard was sidelined with a major ankle sprain when the Spurs made it to the Western Conference Finals in 2017, but stressed that his quad injury remains the primary concern at the moment, as it limited him to only nine games last season. Still, he has some leverage in that he can refuse to sign a long-term extension with certain teams, which would discourage said teams from making respectable offers.

It looks as if the Cavs have at least one plan in mind to try to keep LeBron James in town: Trade for Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard still has a year left on his contract before he has the option to opt out of his deal.

The Lakers have enough salary cap space to sign both James and George to the max contracts they most likely will covet.

David Griffin, the former general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers who won a championship in 2016, recently shared his thoughts on the Kawhi Leonard situation while on SiriusXM NBA Radio. Leonard can become a free agent in 2019, meaning the Spurs are on the clock to get something for him before he has the chance to walk away. "Any deal with the Spurs for Leonard would mean trading draft picks and younger players". However, as Bell said, the Cavs will need to figure out if Leonard has any intention of staying in Cleveland beyond one year.

James and Leonard being on the same team does seem a possibility. Sources finally confirmed what seemed inevitable: Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio.
