Rick Zamperin: Kawhi Leonard joining the Raptors is a longshot


While there are restricted free agents still available, the biggest names in free agency have found homes.

The Spurs keep trying to raise the ante for Leonard, saying that another team is offering more, according to sources.

On the trade front, we saw European teen rookie sensation Luka Doncic get dealt on draft night, while role players like Austin Rivers and Marcin Gortat swapped teams, Dwight Howard landed in Washington, and Wilson Chandler was moved to the Philadelphia 76ers. It's part of the never-ending saga that began in January, when the idea of poor communication between Leonard and the organization surfaced. With San Antonio in no rush to move its disgruntled superstar, the drama could drag on throughout the summer - and beyond. The Spurs reportedly were asking for a king's ransom from the Lakers, with potential packages including L.A.'s top young players Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram and a plethora of draft picks, and the Spurs don't appear willing to budge or negotiate much.

The Sixers and the Clippers are the other two teams being mentioned the most when it comes to a Kawhi Leonard trade.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard remains the biggest enigma in the National Basketball Association to this day, as big-time free agents and players have moved cities and teams, as he remains put, but with no clear direction of his next destination or any resolution to his issues with the franchise. He was clearly a favorite for the team and years later, he could be in the mix yet again.

The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard.

It's been almost a month since it was reported that Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio, and yet the 2014 Finals MVP is still wearing a Spurs uniform.

The 76ers are willing to walk away from the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes.

Leonard has one year remaining on his five-year, $94.3 million contract signed prior to the 2015-16 season.
