Kawhi Leonard Trade Offers ‘Underwhelming’ For Spurs So Far

Share

Nearly certainly, the Spurs will demand a much bigger return than the Cleveland Cavaliers received last summer, when they traded Kyrie Irving to Boston in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, Jae Crowder and the rights to the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round draft pick.

National Basketball Association free-agency started off with a bang Sunday morning with numerous biggest names in the league staying put and signing long-term deals.

With Kawhi Leonard forcing himself out of San Antonio, the Spurs are looking to get some value out of this trade package, which would include Lakers young core.

He made no mention of a Palestinian state arising alongside Israel , though he acknowledged that Arab partners support that goal. Israeli forces detained 20 Palestinians, including a woman, during raids to areas across the West Bank on Thursday morning.

Kuzma was a pleasant surprise for this Lakers front office, quickly taking over the starting power forward job after Larry Nance Jr. went down to injury early in the season. Maybe James doesn't come, and the Lakers have to settle for Plan B. And what if Leonard becomes smitten with wherever he's traded and decides to re-sign there next season?

So I'm not saying the Sixers should give up on going after LeBron James but they probably have a better chance at getting Kawhi Leonard.

He said he was "the guy who protects the president and the family" and "the guy who would take a bullet for the president". Stephanopoulos said that in several instances, Cohen broke with Trump in characterizing the federal investigations.

That would be a hefty price to pay, particularly as the Lakers would have to try and fill out their rosters around LeBron and Leonard. Johnson said he'll step down as president if the Lakers are unable to get big-name free agents in the next two years.

But the Spurs do not have complete leverage as Kawhi openly tells the public about only wanting to re-sign with the Lakers when his contract expires in 2019.

That puts the Lakers in a tough spot, as they may have to trade assets for a player who wants to join them next summer, just to land James.

Before this league-changing news, the San Antonio Spurs could have been asking for the moon in a Leonard trade, arguing that the Lakers were essentially trading for two franchise players. James can also sign a short-term deal with Cleveland, something he has done each year since returning in 2014.
