Seven best Kawhi Leonard trades we'd like to see
/ Spurs


Plenty of questions surround the San Antonio Spurs and All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard.

The Spurs can offer him a supermax contract this summer, but if San Antonio doesn't feel comfortable committing $219 million to a player who appeared in only nine games this season, or Leonard indicates he won't sign it, trade discussions will likely heat up.

The Boston Celtics made an offer for Leonard at the trade deadline, and the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers are both interested now, according to a report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Our NBA Insiders give seven deals that work.

Lakers get: Kawhi Leonard

Spurs get: Lonzo Ball, Luol Deng, Kyle Kuzma

Magic get: Joffrey Lauvergne, 2020 Lakers second-round pick, $1.7 million cash (from Lakers)

Kevin Pelton: While the Lakers can't offer San Antonio the kind of future picks that other teams can in a Leonard trade, they could offer promising young talent. This deal would work with either Ball or Brandon Ingram, the most recent two No. 2 overall picks, depending on how the Spurs value the two prospects.

Get ready for Deandre Ayton, Luka Doncic, Trae Young and more top prospects.<img alt="Insider" border="0" height="11" src=""...
