Suns might try to trade No. 1 pick for Kawhi Leonard

Posted June 19, 2018

The Cavs get Leonard in a trade and convince James to stay for at least one more year.

The NBA world went insane when the news came out that Kawhi Leonard has requested a trade from the San Antonio Spurs.

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. "Reports are he wants to play for the Lakers". The source suggested that the Spurs' decision to make public that Leonard was cleared to play essentially "hung him out to dry". However, Cleveland grabbing Leonard from San Antonio is still a long shot. In today's National Basketball Association, if star players want to get together then they will move mountains to do it. Some are realistic (Lakers, Clippers, Celtics, 76ers) and some aren't (Kings).

NEW POWERHOUSE? Kawhi Leonard may end up with the LA Lakers, which can assemble a new superteam with incoming free agents LeBron James and Paul George also linked to join the glamour squad.

As Bell said, there are probably some back channels that Leonard and James can communicate through.

A few obstacles stand in the way of Cleveland pulling off a deal for Leonard.

They do have the number eight pick in this year's draft, but that won't be enough to get Leonard. It will be up to the Lakers to do some serious digging to see how much of it was serious and how much of it was convenience allowing for a trade right now. Online sportsbook BetDSI places Boston atop the list of likely candidates. If Leonard was perfectly healthy and had no concerns surrounding him, the asking price for him could be young talent plus several first-round picks.
