Spurs fan burns Kawhi Leonard jersey

The Porzingis caveat that could block a Knicks Kawhi trade

Leonard doesn't have a no-trade clause, so the Spurs don't have to trade him anywhere they don't want to.

It's been reported that the Spurs won't trade Leonard to a Western Conference team despite his wishes, but at the end of the day, San Antonio likely will take the best deal for its franchise.

Mark Jackson says if the Lakers can get Kawhi Leonard ANYONE has to be on the trading block. and that means any of their young stars. including Lonzo Ball.

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs gets introduced into the starting lineup against the Sacramento Kings on November 16, 2016 at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. "That could make him attractive in a trade".

"Several league sources told me they anticipate Suns general manager Ryan McDonough to probe a Leonard deal using the No. 1 pick".

Of course, the Spurs are not at all required to grant Leonard a trade to a team of his choosing, and the Lakers aren't the only squad inquiring about a potential deal. James opts into the final year of his contract in Cleveland to play with Leonard for a year.

The Lakers have many Free Agents on their books this offseason, totaling $92.3 Million in cap holds this offseason.

The relationship between Leonard and the Spurs seemed to fracture slowly. Just ask Dan Gilbert and Cleveland's front office if Isaiah Thomas was really the best fit for the Cavs, or Vlade Divac if signing George Hill or Vince Carter really adhered to his team's timeline or best interests. At the same time, if any team has reason to go all-in on Kawhi's lessened value, it's the Lakers since it's believed he'll eventually find his way there anyway. However, that doesn't mean other teams aren't interested in acquiring the services of the versatile 26-year-old forward/guard, and one of those teams appears to be the Cleveland Cavaliers, who may or may not be entering the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season with their own franchise player and four-time MVP victor, LeBron James.

Trading Luis Scola to the Rockets and Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz, neither of these trades contained players anywhere near the talent of Kawhi Leonard.
