Boston Celtics given best odds at landing Kawhi Leonard

Boston Celtics given best odds at landing Kawhi Leonard

Of course, just because a player wants to be dealt to a particular team doesn't mean it will happen.

James can still opt into the past year of his contract which is worth $35.6 million - he has until June 29 to do so but the expectation is that he'll choose against it and become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.

It will be interesting to see how much Leonard's injury filled season impacts trade discussions around him.

Kawhi Leonard's departure seems to be a foregone conclusion to everyone at this point ... except perhaps for the San Antonio Spurs.

After a flurry of reports said last Friday that Leonard wants out of San Antonio, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski added that Los Angeles is his preferred destination, particularly the Lakers.

Leonard would reportedly prefer to play in Los Angeles, and most betting markets have responded by making the Lakers the favorites to be the team he suits up for during the 2018-19 season. But he does not have a no-trade clause in his current contract, so the Spurs could trade him anywhere.

Griffin thinks the Spurs won't trade their star until they sit down with him in person and find out that's definitely what he wants.

If Leonard is traded by June 30, his contract carries the 2017-18 value of $18.9 million.

Seismologists in Chile also said they recorded artificial activity in Mexico City at the same time, according to USA Today . Marquez took to the field toward the end of Sunday's match against Germany , notching his fifth appearance in a World Cup .

When the news came out pertaining to Leonard, most people predicted that three teams make sense for the multiple All-Star to go to.

"And wouldn't you know, there are the Lakers, semi-functional for the first time in years, with the assets to piece together an interesting trade package".

They have the No. 8 pick in this week's draft and would most likely also send Kevin Love or Tristan Thompson for Leonard. Some combination of guard Patrick Beverley, forward Danilo Gallinari and forward Sam Dekker would have to be on the table too, or including both 2018 first-round picks could get San Antonio's attention. He's a week removed from his eighth consecutive Finals and fourth with the Cavs.
