Spurs want All-Star, young players, picks for Leonard

Spurs want All-Star, young players, picks for Leonard

In fact, online sportsbook MyBookie now lists the Toronto Raptors as even money to land the All-Star forward, which is better odds than the Spurs at +400.

Leonard has largely stayed out of the public eye since reports surfaced last month that he wanted to be traded from the Spurs.

Leonard, an All-NBA forward, is now able to receive a "supermax" contract offer from San Antonio.

On today's Lowe Post, though, Lowe and Windhorst got a little more specific in talking about the Leonard market and the Raptors in particular.

Child survives dad's drunk crash, killed by another car
Mike Shaw says the girl had sent text messages seeking help for herself and her dad before she was struck. Thomas thought her father was dead, got out of the vehicle with her backpack and climbed over a fence.

On Tuesday, the latest comes from (are you sitting down?) ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, who teamed up for this story on Leonard considering taking part in USA Basketball's mini-camp in Las Vegas scheduled for next week (he was one of 35 players invited back in April).

Leonard would be eligible to sign a five-year $190 million contract as a free agent with the team acquiring him or four-years $141 million with a team that has cap space.

He reportedly had a tense relationship with the team throughout his rehab process and has demanded a trade out of San Antonio.

"The Toronto Raptors, I think they're in the driver's seat for Kawhi", Windhorst shared.

An ESPN Insider Has A Major Update On Manny Machado Trade
The Blue Jays are going nowhere this season in the AL East, but Happ knows he might be going somewhere else. He's now hitting.315 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI and what would be a career-best.962 OPS.

According to ESPN, the Celtics have not included Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, or Al Horford in their trade package, while the Sixers have not included Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, or Markelle Fultz. "San Antonio has been determined in demanding a sizable return on Leonard".

The 76ers, Lakers and Raptors, amongst others, are all reportedly interested in Leonard.

There has been little to no public news since the meeting, except for Spurs general manager R.C. Buford publicly stating on draft night that the franchise had every intention to keep Leonard in San Antonio.
