Philadelphia 76ers: 3 questions surrounding reported offer for Kawhi Leonard

Philadelphia 76ers: 3 questions surrounding reported offer for Kawhi Leonard

The Los Angeles Lakers have not given up on signing Kawhi Leonard and have re-opened negotiations with the San Antonio Spurs.

The Lakers and San Antonio Spurs have been in talks on a potential trade, and now with George no longer an option, some believe L.A. could really turn up the heat on acquiring Leonard.

The most recent report surrounding Leonard and his camp was that he reached out to National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James in an effort to play alongside him.

In his rookie season, Ball averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds per game, but the Spurs are reportedly all-in on their own young point guard, Dejounte Murray.

It's been well-documented that LeBron loves Pop and it's been previously reported that Pop would be leading the Spurs' charge to sign him if he opts out of his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers by the end of the day on Friday.

"The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family", James told reporters after the Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in the NBA Finals earlier this month.

Julius Randle is the Los Angeles Lakers' insurance policy this offseason.

According to another report, James is hesitant to be the first star player to join the Lakers.




That could mean luring James and George, who has had his eye on the Lakers for some time now.

Some of them have decided that they are joining the Lakers if the 14-time All-Star will be playing there next season. Kawhi Leonard. I'm not saying it's right that the Lakers - or LeBron, if you want - ghosted Paul George in the days/weeks leading up to free agency, but to say there's 0% chance that it happened this way is disingenuous.

The bottom line is that the Celts would be willing to make a great deal for Kawhi Leonard.

The Lakers will have to part with their young talent in order to get their hands of Leonard.

Still, the Lakers continue to pester San Antonio about the former NBA Finals MVP.

"A Western Conference source with an interest in the proceedings told the Herald the Spurs did have a brief discussion with the Celts today, but there was no real negotiation".

When the trade for Leonard is announced, expect the Spurs to be genuinely smiling at their good fortune.
