Spurs fan burns Kawhi Leonard jersey

"Neither the Lakers nor Clippers have had trade discussions with the Spurs, as both teams have concerns about the severity of Leonard's injury", Ganguli wrote.

But ESPN pundit Smith has blasted Leonard - who could also leave via free agency in 12 months' time if he opts out of the previous year of his current deal - for his actions, accusing him of wrongly dressing up a long-held desire to go to LA.

For a source closer to the situation, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News lists four potential trade partners: the Los Angeles Lakers, Clippers, Boston and Philadelphia.

You want to be in LA, be in LA. "He would be the first or second scoring option and he could be viewed as the guy that gets them over the top", Broussard said. This would also allow them to confirm that this is what Leonard truly wants (and not just the people in his inner circle). "We got no respect for you man".

"I have no idea how Kawhi feels about playing with LeBron but I know that his uncle has heard whatever horror stories Kyrie had that led him to want out of Cleveland, Denis Robertson has heard". However, Leonard doesn't want to go to NY.

The acquisition of Kawhi Leonard will strengthen the Lakers' chance of signing their target superstars in the free agency market like LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Kawhi Leonard-San Antonio Spurs saga has been well documented.

He spent several months away from the team while rehabbing, which led to public barbs from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich about Leonard's absence - an unusual move for the Spurs.

Doing so, however, would require the Lakers to free up cap space and trade an up-and-coming prospect such as Brandon Ingram in order to entice the Spurs into an immediate deal.

Leonard has some leverage in that he can tell any non-L.A. team that he has no interest in signing an extension after his current deal expires in a year, and that may end up diminishing the value of offers Eastern Conference teams are willing to make.
