NBA Draft 2018 rumors: Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes another Lakers vs. Celtics rivalry

But if the Suns do make the trade, a one-two punch of Leonard and Devin Booker would certainly be interesting and the Suns could become an emerging contender in the Western Conference if Leonard re-signs.

Pau Gasol #16 of the San Antonio Spurs, Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs, and Davis Bertans #42 of the San Antonio Spurs look on against the Denver Nuggets on January 13, 2018 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. He apparently has his eye on Los Angeles, more specifically the Lakers, even if it means foregoing his right to a five-year, $217 million "supermax" contract by leaving the Spurs.

It is his "camp", which includes his uncle, ostensibly acting as Kawhi's agent, that has made the "I don't want to play with San Antonio anymore" proclamation.

Magnitude 6.1 natural disaster in Osaka, Japan, kills three and injures 200
Defence troops joined rescue and relief operations in parts of Osaka, along with special vehicles to deliver clean drinking water. The natural disaster reminded numerous magnitude 7.3 Hanshin-Kobe quake in 1995 that killed more than 6000 people in the region.

But this goes well beyond the court itself, hence Leonard not batting much of an eyelid at the idea of sacrificing a max deal with the Spurs.

Any offer Cleveland might make would have to start with the No.8 overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft. San Antonio first, of course, has to try and move Leonard, who still has one year left on his contract.

National Basketball Association trades can be weird, and this summer is wrapping up to be a special one.

WH Adviser Apologizes For 'Special Place In Hell' For Trudeau Remark
Trump just a week before the summit imposed 25% tariffs on steel and 10% tariffs on aluminum from the European Union and Canada. Canada is the U.S.'s largest trading partner, and the US economy would struggle to make up for Canada's absence, Heyman noted.

While LeBron James and Paul George have been the most talked about superstars, a new name has seriously entered the fray in Kawhi Leonard. At the same time, if the Cavaliers have that same mindset about the 2X Defensive Player of the Year, then they'll also shy away and let Leonard hit the open market next summer. If Leonard chooses to leave for L.A.at the end of that season, and James chooses to explore elsewhere, then Cleveland can shift straight into a rebuild.

The 26-year-old played just nine games in the 2017-18 season, with a mysterious quad injury keeping him out for longer than initially expected. If George leaves, what do they have to show for the trade?

Trading Luis Scola to the Rockets and Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz, neither of these trades contained players anywhere near the talent of Kawhi Leonard.
