The Raptors are now co-favorites to acquire Kawhi Leonard

The Raptors are now co-favorites to acquire Kawhi Leonard

"To this point in trade discussions, the Lakers have not shown a sense of urgency to make a Kawhi Leonard trade".

Of course, the Spurs are in no immediate rush to trade Leonard and could go into the 2018-19 season with him on their roster if they aren't blown away by any offers.

Excluding the "field" option, the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers rank third and fourth on the list while the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics are tied for fifth.

ESPN's Zach Lowe reported July 5 on a possible Spurs-Leonard deal surrounding DeRozan as well with possibly rookie OG Anunoby and a first-round pick attached.

Leonard's discontent with the San Antonio Spurs has been well-publicized in recent weeks, and a handful of teams were linked to the former NBA Finals MVP. The Sixers' most realistic package to submit to San Antonio could involve Dario Saric, Robert Covington and the Miami Heat's 2021 unprotected first-round pick.

"I do believe that the top two picks of all players available in the National Basketball Association to beat the Warriors would be LeBron as my first pick and Kawhi as my second pick". He's one of the best players in the entire league, so naturally the asking price for his services is sky high. "So the Sixers will have to decide if they want to part with two more first-round picks or see if the Spurs will back off those demands".

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

Leonard, 27, has one year remaining on his contract, meaning any team willing to trade for him would likely need to be assured ahead of time that he'd sign a contract extension.

It may not be ideal for the Spurs, but it's one that would get the deal done.
