New team emerges as Las Vegas favorite to land Kawhi Leonard

It seemed for awhile that the Sixers would also be missing out on adding Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard as well, after not coming to terms of an agreement for the superstar. According to OddsShark, the Raptors are now tied with the Spurs as the favorites to have Leonard playing on their team next season.

Kawhi Leonard trade rumors to the Toronto Raptors have heated up thanks, in part, to Vegas.

Leonard's group has stated he would only want to re-sign next summer with a team from the Los Angeles area, which continues to dissuade teams from putting together an attractive package with multiple assets for the Spurs.

Another team that has been mentioned as a possible landing spot is the Philadelphia 76ers.

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

He was satisfied with the result after what he believed to be a "boring stage" with no wind or stress. No Australian has won the Tour de France since Cadel Evans in 2011.


The Philadelphia 76ers have been consumed with sub-par Summer League play and whether Markelle Fultz has reformed his jump shot before the start of the season, at least that's how it has felt in the last couple weeks. With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, perhaps Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri is willing to swing for the fences and move DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry in such a deal.

The San Antonio Spurs shooting guard still thinks his franchise has a chance at bringing back Kawhi Leonard.

As Bontemps mentioned, though, acquiring Leonard would likely cost DeRozan or Lowry, the two stars that helped Toronto to the top seed in the Eastern Conference past year. Unfortunately, it has been a while since we have last seen a healthy Kawhi Leonard. Although, the Sixers could still use another veteran presence and a guy like Gasol would be a flawless fit off the bench to come in a spot for Joel Embiid at center or in his usual power forward role.

Leonard can become a free agent after next season, and the general consensus seems to be that he will wind up with the Los Angeles Lakers.
