Kawhi Leonard no longer wants to be a Spur

Kawhi Leonard reportedly no longer wants to play for the Spurs, and the league's strangest fallout has reached the next level

If they decide to trade Leonard then the Spurs will want the return an MVP candidate should get, but that quad injury is going to bring down his value.

The first team that comes to mind is the Los Angeles Lakers.

Leonard, however, wants out of San Antonio and "isn't concerned about missing out on the supermax" as he felt betrayed by the organization, per Chris Haynes of ESPN.

Though, it's highly likely that Boston would also have to include a top-level rotational player in any hypothetical deal with San Antonio.

If the Cavaliers proved anything at last season's trade deadline, it's that they're not afraid to make serious moves.

Leonard signed a five-year contract, worth more than $90 million, with the Spurs in 2015.

Not only that, Leonard now reportedly wants out of San Antonio, with the Lakers being his preferred landing spot.

We lost a battle, but not the war". "We will give our life on the pitch". The Besiktas defender praised Ronaldo for his contribution against Spain.

Leonard is under contract with San Antonio for two more seasons, but he's effectively entering the a year ago of his deal thanks to an opt-out clause for 2019-20. There hasn't been any news concerning the Knicks putting together a trade offer but there has been a buzz about the Lakers getting into the action.

Leonard can opt out of his current contract after next season and become a free agent.

Unless the Cleveland front office gets creative in an offer for Leonard, which must include the No. 8 overall pick, it's a hard task to pull off.

A person familiar with the situation says Leonard has told the Spurs that he would like to be traded this summer, the clearest sign yet that the relationship between the team and the All-Star is in disrepair.

According to reports, the Spurs learned of Leonard's trade request via social media. A report surfaced over the weekend that said Phoenix would explore the possibility of trading the pick if they were blown away by an offer.

The Cavaliers were not the most talented team this past year, but if the Spurs believe LeBron's teammates were overshadowed by him, they may look to trade Kawhi out of the Western Conference.
