Raptors 'Generate Buzz' As Possible Trade Spot For Kawhi Leonard

  • If the Raptors go bargain hunting to fill out their roster here are 10 likely candidates

The other team that seems to be majorly interested and have the assets is the Philadelphia 76ers. With San Antonio in no rush to move its disgruntled superstar, the drama could drag on throughout the summer - and beyond.

Speaking on First Things First on Fox Sports, Carter - who has the same agent as Leonard - said: "Kawhi, in meeting with Pop, Pop gave him every indication that he was going to trade him and he was going to try to make Kawhi happy". The Spurs reportedly asked them for three future first-round draft picks and two current players, but if one of those players do not include one of either Markelle Futlz, Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid, it will likely be rejected.

Many outlets began reporting in June that the 26-year-old has a strong desire to play for the Lakers as he's a native of Los Angeles, but trade talks have stalled between the two Western Conference rivals. He was clearly a favorite for the team and years later, he could be in the mix yet again. According to Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post, the Raptors have "generated buzz as a potential destination for (Kawhi) Leonard". With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, perhaps Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri is willing to swing for the fences and move DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry in such a deal. Part of the reason why teams could be hesitant to offer the motherlode for Leonard is that he is entering the final year of his contract and may amount to a one-year rental player for teams.

And it is no secret that the All-Star forward wants to go to his California hometown, be it via a trade this summer or when he has the option to enter free agency in 12 months' time.

Leonard is keen to leave San Antonio after a fall-out with the organisation over the quad injury that kept him to just nine games last season.
