Kawhi Leonard trade rumors: Raptors, Spurs finalizing deal involving DeMar DeRozan

  • Kawhi Leonard to Be Traded to Raptors for DeMar DeRozan

Kawhi Leonard next team odds: Where could the National Basketball Association star go next?

Leonard averaged 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game in just nine appearances after dealing with a nagging quad injury all of 2017-18.

Some type of combination of DeMar DeRozan, Pascal Siakim, OG Anunoby, Serge Ibaka and a first-round pick has been bandied about in recent weeks. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne reported Tuesday that the Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets also had checked in on Leonard. We won 59 games past year without Kawhi Leonard, he's better than DeMar DeRozan'.

The Raptors aren't the only team that has called about Leonard of late.

Adding to the drama, Leonard is now eligible to receive a 5-year, $221 million supermax extension with San Antonio, but there has been no indication if he would want to sign the deal or if the Spurs have made an official offer.

Ujiri will make the deal with a determination that he can sell Leonard on re-signing with the Raptors next summer in free agency, sources said. That means no Kyrie Irving, no Gordon Hayward, no Al Horford, and certainly no Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum.




The Spurs reportedly won't allow opposing teams to contact Leonard directly and won't divulge any medical reports until after an agreement is already in place, leaving all of the question marks surrounding their superstar firmly in place.

Well, we still don't, but now at least we know what they weren't willing to part with for the disgruntled Spurs star.

There has been little to no public news since the meeting, except for Spurs general manager R.C. Buford publicly stating on draft night that the franchise had every intention to keep Leonard in San Antonio.

"If the Spurs are losing deal leverage", Wojnarowski and Shelburne write, "they aren't operating in a manner that suggests they're peddling a depreciating asset".

Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio. In a vacuum, that would be well worth it, but as the scenario continues to unfold the obvious risks of giving up that much can be hazardous.
