Raptors Could Be In 'Driver's Seat' To Trade For Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard could miss out on a lot of money if he leaves the Spurs

Interested teams may get a chance to see Leonard in action for the first time since January 2018, as the two-time NBA All-Star is reportedly "seriously considering" participating in Team USA's minicamp later in July.

"Be told one thing & the outcome another".

Leonard widely has been reported to have interest in playing in Los Angeles, although it's unclear if he has specific interest in joining the Lakers, the Clippers or either one.

"It's way more likely now than it was a couple of weeks ago".

Johnson replied, "I'll plead the fifth". "He's done great in his transition, and I think he's gonna continue to work hard". But his backstory is told so quickly that we don't really get to know a few things which could have been very interesting.

"The teams that would be used as facilitators for these deals - the Bulls, the Nets, and the Hawks - have all used their cap space", Windhorst said, adding that since most teams are unwilling to part with their prime young players, the Raptors have "defaulted" to the top of list.

At 3:18 AM ET on Wednesday morning, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported that a big-time blockbuster National Basketball Association trade is in the works.

According to ESPN, the Celtics have not included Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, or Al Horford in their trade package, while the Sixers have not included Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, or Markelle Fultz.

Talks between the Spurs and Raptors have intensified in recent days, league sources said.

The possible reason behind a drop in your Twitter followers
Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav saw a drop of over 2,200 in his number of followers on the microblogging site. The shares sold off because of uncertainty, but getting rid of dormant accounts is a good thing for the service in the long run.

"For key figures involved in the deal, it is believed only a snag in final discussions could slow the traction on completion, league sources said".

But it looks like it's Toronto who has presented the best deal to San Antonio with a proven star in DeRozan being thrown into the mix. Leonard was one of 35 players invited to participate in the camp, which will be led by Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.

Leonard has been at odds with his Spurs franchise all season and played just nine games since last summer.

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.
