Where should the San Antonio Spurs trade Kawhi Leonard?

Where should the San Antonio Spurs trade Kawhi Leonard?

Among Leonard's preferred landing spots is Los Angeles - specifically the Lakers - according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Leonard wasn't going to help the Celtics last season seeing as he didn't play a game after January 13, but he would still be under contract for them.

Leonard's fallout with the Spurs has been a year-long saga, stemming from a disagreement over how to handle an injury to his quad. This of course now opens the door for Leonard to make his way to another team, perhaps even ending up on the same team as LeBron James, like the Lakers. While many would not like the Lakers giving up their talented young players for Kawhi Leonard, there are certainly some benefits that would come from it.

Up to this point, San Antonio has resisted any offers for Leonard.

However, because he is still under contract for a year and does not have a no-trade clause, the Spurs do not have to adhere to Leonard's request.

The Suns also hold the draft's 16th pick.

Leonard has communicated with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich in recent days, sources say, but the two have yet to speak in person.

Leonard reportedly wants to play in either L.A.

Markkanen would probably have to be packaged with the No. 7 overall pick in the upcoming draft.

"The Chicago Bulls definitely have a trade package to put together for Kawhi Leonard".

The Clippers are poised to begin their own rebuilding effort after missing the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons. If the Knicks got Leonard in a trade, then they would lose their best player Kristaps Porzingis, who the Spurs are very fond of, sources told Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

The question with that is how much these other teams are willing to give up for Leonard, who can opt-out of his contract next summer. Acquiring Leonard would play a big part in that regard.
