Lakers Have Not 'Shown A Sense Of Urgency' For Kawhi Leonard Trade

Lakers Have Not 'Shown A Sense Of Urgency' For Kawhi Leonard Trade

"If the right situation comes where we can acquire someone that can really add value to our program and the cost of it isn't prohibitive, then we'll move forward and do that", Sixers co-managing partner Josh Harris said.

Naturally, when a player of Leonard's stature becomes disgruntled and consequently available for trade discussions, there are going to be a host of teams competing for his services.

Leonard's name has swirled in rumors with the Lakers, Clippers, 76ers, Celtics, and now the Raptors.

Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post noted on Monday that, "The Philadelphia 76ers have consistently remained atop the list of teams expected to land Leonard".

It's now closing in on mid-July, and Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs' fractured relationship appears no closer to a resolution. ESPN's Brian Windhorst then said in an appearance on SN 590 The Fan Wednesday that National Basketball Association executives believe the Raptors are one of the best positioned teams to make a play for Leonard.

While there's been no concrete reporting that Toronto is actively trying to break up their starting backcourt, there's been plenty of speculation that the team would look to trade one of their All-Stars. That is, assuming the Spurs would be interested in such a deal. It hasn't yet been reported that Toronto has contacted San Antonio. Other teams simply have too many trade assets to send out in bringing back the former Finals MVP, and with his apparent desire to join the Lakers and free agency just a year away, it seemed a foregone conclusion that he would eventually end up there. Leonard's odds of starting the season with the Spurs are the same as his odds of playing for the Raptors in the season opener.
