Philadelphia 76ers: 3 questions surrounding reported offer for Kawhi Leonard

Los Angeles Lakers under pressure to pull off Kawhi Leonard trade: report Philadelphia 76ers: 3 questions surrounding reported offer for Kawhi Leonard

Ben Maller thinks that if the Spurs were smart, they wouldn't trade them to the Lakers at all.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be an attractive destination for players if they can sign LeBron James.

In the report, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst detail that the Spurs are looking for a better package than the Cavaliers and Pacers got for Kyrie Irving and Paul George prior to free agency a year ago. San Antonio has had hopes of repairing its tattered relationship with Leonard and ultimately getting to a comfort level with offering the $219 million super maximum contract extension. The Celtics do have the assets required to make a move for Leonard as they have multiple draft picks and players like Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Kyrie Irving.

It is possible that James and George will head to Los Angeles as unrestricted free agents. The Spurs, however, had apparently not been open to trade talks with the Lakers and in general seemed content to let teams call in with offers as they decided what to do.

The Spurs have received trade offers from the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers, according to ESPN, but reports in the past have identified the Lakers as the team Leonard prefers to be dealt to. The San Antonio Spurs' forward isn't a free agent, but he has demanded a trade and made it clear that he won't ever set foot in their locker room again. Whether or not they play out is one thing, but to say players don't at least engage each other on the subject is another.

George and Leonard are Southern California natives who have expressed interest in the Lakers.

As the chatter about James' grew to a fever pitch this week, the four-time NBA MVP and three-time league champion retreated to the Caribbean island of Anguilla for a family vacation. On top of that, Leonard is coming off a quad injury that forced him to miss 73 games last season. This should all but erase any thoughts the Lakers have about waiting a year for Leonard.
