Cleveland Cavs Made Calls To Spurs About Kawhi Leonard

Cleveland Cavs Made Calls To Spurs About Kawhi Leonard

While ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Leonard's preferred destination is the Los Angeles Lakers, this is clearly not going to deter multiple teams from around the league in inquiring with the Spurs as it pertains to a suitable trade package. But, even if they made the deal for Kawhi, and traded Kevin Love, the Cavaliers would take a hit in their frontcourt depth which was already thin to begin with.

Uneasy feelings surrounding the Spurs' handling of Leonard's quad injury have compelled San Antonio's franchise player to request a trade to Los Angeles, preferably the Lakers. Instead, they will certainly try to meet with Leonard first - either in an attempt to resolve this conflict or, at the very least, confirm this is how he feels. This source said Gregg Popovich has historically been extra cautious with injuries, sometimes making players beg him to play to show they're truly ready to get back on the court. "Leonard will be a free agent after the 2018-19 season".

It also sets up new guidelines for satellite design and operation, to avoid collisions and spacecraft break-ups. It's part of his policy "to embrace the budding commercial space industry", Trump said.

On Friday, ESPN's Chris Haynes reported that there is distrust between Leonard and the Spurs and that the relationship may be "irreparable". Carmelo Anthony demanded a trade from the Denver Nuggets in the summer of 2010, then had to play 50 games for the organization during the 2010-11 campaign before finally getting dealt to the New York Knicks in February. IN sent Paul George to Oklahoma City, and the forward could be headed elsewhere in free agency after spending just one season with the Thunder.

Last season, Leonard played just nine games, averaging 16.2 points per game. Sports, Sacramento is yet another team to watch when it come to an eventual Leonard sweepstakes. Maybe a rental of Leonard would be good enough? James would have to commit to returning to Cleveland for any chance of a Leonard-Cleveland trade to be possible.
