Toronto Raptors Current Favorites To Land Kawhi Leonard

Toronto Raptors Current Favorites To Land Kawhi Leonard

Before the Sixers and other interested teams give a "Godfather" offer to the Spurs, it is highly likely that they will first want to get an assurance that Leonard is already 100 percent recovered from the quad injury.

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. Boston and Philadelphia are the favorites to make the Finals, though adding Leonard could make the Raptors more competitive.

According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, it is believed that the Sixers would have a hard time getting Buford to leave San Antonio for Philly.

Despite their worsening relationship with Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs are still hoping that they can get valuable assets that could keep them competitive in the Western Conference.

While the ultimate goal may be to pair James and Leonard on the same team, for now, it appears that James' arrival has allowed the Lakers to be patient in their pursuit of Leonard.

DeRozan will be 29 in August, but is coming off another All-Star season.

Both players are owed a lot of money over the next few seasons.

A new team has entered the mix as a possible trade partner for the San Antonio Spurs if and when they move Kawhi Leonard, and oddsmakers think there is a very good chance Leonard ends up with said team.

The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly targeting San Antonio Spurs general manager R.C. Buford as a potential candidate for their vacant GM spot. That certainly plays in favor of the Lakers, as Leonard has stated that's where he wants to play. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means.
