Kawhi Leonard is still a member of the San Antonio Spurs, despite numerous reports that the team is "ready" to move on from the former NBA Finals MVP.

Leonard's relationship with the Spurs has grown sour over the past year due in large part to communication issues between the team and its superstar over injury management.

The Los Angeles Lakers have found themselves in the middle of a number of rumors this offseason, but perhaps the more intriguing one involves San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard. It would most likely begin with DeMar DeRozan, the Raptors wing who fits best to fill out the salary of the trade, and at 28, the All-NBA wing could be seen as a player who can help the Spurs remain relevant.

The 76ers are willing to walk away from the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes. "The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard", Tim Bontemps writes.

The Raptors would risk losing Leonard in a year since he's eligible to become a free agent next summer and reportedly wants to play in Los Angeles. It has only been a few months, but it seems like this saga has been brewing for a billion years.

According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, it is believed that the Sixers would have a hard time getting Buford to leave San Antonio for Philly.

While the ultimate goal may be to pair James and Leonard on the same team, for now, it appears that James' arrival has allowed the Lakers to be patient in their pursuit of Leonard. That is, assuming the Spurs would be interested in such a deal. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means.
