Toronto Raptors Current Favorites To Land Kawhi Leonard

Lakers trade target Kawhi Leonard favored to play for Raptors next season			Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The Spurs are in no hurry to move their disgruntled big man.

"Kawhi can be traded anywhere, so is it a possibly?"

The Philadelphia 76ers have been identified as a possible landing spot for Leonard should the San Antonio Spurs trade the star swingman. 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. But according to ESPN's Chris Haynes, there is only one team in the East that Leonard would interested in playing for: the Philadelphia 76ers.

Take a deep breath, Toronto Raptors fans. Acquiring Leonard would help them keep pace with the Celtics and Sixers, two squads that appear to be only at the start of their championship windows.

Elon Musk calls Thai cave rescuer a pedophile on Twitter
Vernon Unsworth, a caver based in Thailand, provided knowledge of the Tham Luang cave system, which helped in the rescue. Responding to Musk's Twitter rant, Unsworth told Australia's Nine Network , "I believe he's called me a pedophile".

With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, it makes sense Toronto would seriously consider making a move for Leonard.

Carter had another noteworthy report about the Leonard situation earlier this week when he said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is trying to make Kawhi happy. The James-led Cleveland Cavaliers have eliminated the Raptors in each of the past three post-seasons, so even a one-year rental of Leonard could lead Masai Ujiri and pull the trigger. The Sporting News noted that San Antonio is not budging in its high asking price, and is feeling no pressure to keep Leonard happy by moving him quickly.

Injuries limited Leonard to just nine games last season, but he averaged a career-high 25.5 points per game in the previous season, in addition to 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
