San Antonio Spurs: Kawhi Leonard still ‘irate’ with Tony Parker’s comments

Gregg Popovich meets with Kawhi Leonard in California

Let's rewind to this time a year ago. While trading for Leonard would likely be the main goal, they could also be thinking about moving up in the first round.

With a lot of young players already on the team, making three selections in the draft this year does seem a little unlikely. With five picks left to play with and a stockpile of present and future assets, expect plenty of movement from Brett Brown's squad on draft night.

He finished his lone season with Texas Tech with averages of 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists and shot a great 45.0 percent from deep nightly, albeit on very limited attempts, and 55.6 percent from the field overall.

The Lakers aren't going to sit and wait around for players to sign with them this season, they are actively going out to get some.

Kawhi Leonard hopes he doesn't return to the San Antonio Spurs next season-that much we know for sure.

The Boston Celtics are one of the National Basketball Association teams who have expressed interest in acquiring Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs.

According to ESPN's Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, arguably the most respectable source for breaking news in the league, the 76ers have traded the 39th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft to the Los Angeles Lakers for a 2019 second-round pick (via the Chicago Bulls) and cash. However, since they have been linked to San Antonio Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard, those picks might be ammo to try and work out a trade with the Spurs. Even trading for Kawhi and signing LeBron and George this offseason may not be enough to make them favored over the Golden State Warriors, and I wouldn't pick them to take down the two-time defending champs. They've made smart move after smart move over the a year ago or so; we will see if they continue them and hold off the temptation to drain their roster and assets.
