NBA Insider David Aldridge Has Major Update On Lakers-Kawhi Leonard Trade

While there are restricted free agents still available, the biggest names in free agency have found homes.

It's looking like Leonard is going to be on the Spurs for a while longer, at least. It all depends on who matches San Antonio's asking price or if they settle with a less-than-desired package from another team, especially to get a deal done before anyone takes the court.

Leonard's relationship has deteriorated with the Spurs' organization after ESPN reported that the former NBA Finals MVP believes the organization mishandled his quadriceps injury, as well as comments made by Popovich and teammate Tony Parker regarding his injury as Leonard sat out most of the season.

Instead, he still wants to go to his native Los Angeles but his preference is now the Clippers. With San Antonio in no rush to move its disgruntled superstar, the drama could drag on throughout the summer - and beyond.

The Spurs have reportedly asked the Sixers for three future first-round draft picks and two current players but if one of those players do not include one of either Markelle Futlz, Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid, it will likely be rejected.

France take on Belgium for a place in the final
Marouane Fellaini , who has oft-partnered Pogba in the United midfield, will now be looking to stop the powerful Frenchman. Barring a Kylian Mbappe-inspired 4-3 victory over Argentina, France have lacked cohesion in the final third.

Furthermore, Raptors HQ stressed that the Toronto Raptors "don't have the trade juice" to swing a deal for Kawhi Leonard, as adding someone like Lowry who is in the "back end" of his prime years might not make much sense.

It's been almost a month since it was reported that Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio, and yet the 2014 Finals MVP is still wearing a Spurs uniform.

The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard.

According to a Western Conference executive that spoke to The Undefeated, everyone is indeed waiting on a Leonard trade. Part of the reason why teams could be hesitant to offer the motherlode for Leonard is that he is entering the final year of his contract and may amount to a one-year rental player for teams.
