This Kawhi Leonard Trade Is Actually Possible — ESPN’s Brian Windhorst

Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard GETTYThe Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers are keen to acquire Kawhi Leonard this summer

Hmmmm. The Toronto Raptors are co-favorites to have Kawhi Leonard on their roster by next season.

"But if you don't think that you're going to be able to resign Kawhi Leonard then you don't want to compromise what could be a 10-year player in Markelle Fultz for you". First, Zach Lowe brought them up in his weekly column, then Brian Windhorst made an appearance on Sportsnet590 with JD Bunkis and also said that the Raptors were a team to watch, although it wasn't almost a done deal.

Kawhi Leonard's hive-mind of his uncle's friends decided that the two-way superstar would be playing in Los Angeles next season, and agreed that Kawhi wouldn't set foot on the court for another team.

"The Spurs keep trying to raise the ante for Leonard, saying that another team is offering more, according to sources".

Scientists previously believed that giant dinosaurs didn't come into existence until 25 million years later. Called the Ingenia prima , this dinosaur was thrice the dimensions of the bulkiest of Triassic dinosaurs.


The Sixers could offer a combination of young players and drafts picks to the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

All three of these stellar small forwards had the chance to come team up with the East's up-and-comers, help bear the fruit of the Process, and have their name live in Philadelphia 76ers sports history. However, teams like Toronto could look at what happened with Paul George last year, when the Oklahoma City Thunder took a chance by trading for him even though it seemed like he would be a one-year rental.

Leonard has made it abundantly clear that he can't wait to get the heck out of San Antonio, and the Spurs are just looking for the right trade package to deal him for.

Per Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post, the Raptors emerged at the NBA Summer League, which, coincidentally, takes place in Las Vegas. They want the same proven players with two additional first-round picks attached. With a successful season around the new core, it's possible the Raptors could convince Kawhi to stick around past the first season. There's enough out there to be reasonably sure that the Raptors have spoken to the Spurs about a trade, but the status of those talks is completely unclear, and it's impossible to know whether things will ever progress past this point.
