Raptors 'generate buzz' for Leonard

If Leonard refuses to agree to a long-term extension with any team besides the Los Angeles Lakers, why would said team give up much for a one-year rental player?

Over the past few weeks, many an National Basketball Association player had found a new home via free agency or trade, with LeBron James headed to the Los Angeles Lakers, DeMarcus Cousins set to join the Golden State Warriors and their lineup of All-Stars, and Dwight Howard moving once again and becoming a Washington Wizard.

Disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard's preference is a move to Los Angeles; however, he would only move to the Eastern Conference if it was for the Philadelphia 76ers.

However, if a trade can't be worked out to send Leonard to Los Angeles, the Eastern Conference is a possibility as well.

But according to the Washington Post's Tim Bontemps, another team has emerged in the sweepstakes. He passed on the chance to head home to Los Angeles and chase titles with LeBron, instead deciding to remain with his friend and former NBA MVP Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City.

Internet absolutely rinses Boris Johnson after he resigns as foreign secretary
The ramifications that the resignations will have on this week's working visit are unclear. Mr Davis insisted the pair had not co-ordinated their resignations .


However, Philadelphia would be the only Eastern Conference team that Leonard would re-sign with. He will consider Philly.

Unlike the 76ers and Celtics, the Raptors don't possess a bevy of assets to swing a Leonard trade.

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.

Considering the Sixers were swept out of the playoffs by the Celtics this past year, they could definitely use a player like Leonard to help compete with an even more loaded Boston team next season.
