Pat Riley Will Do 'Anything and Everything' to Land Kawhi Leonard

Pat Riley Will Do 'Anything and Everything' to Land Kawhi Leonard

"The goal is to hopefully come to a decision" about a possible five-year, $219 million supermax extension with the Spurs that the two-time first-team All-NBA guard is eligible to sign this offseason.

They have reportedly made calls to the San Antonio Spurs about Kawhi Leonard. Last week, it was reported that Leonard "has grown uncomfortable with the Spurs organization" and that he is eyeing a trade to Los Angeles, preferably to the Lakers.

The reporting from Chris Mannix suggests it is "the circus that Ball brings with him" has led the Spurs to not have interest in Ball.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and unsafe metropolis of the future: Night City. The choices made during creation are reflected in the world, and affect how characters perceive the player.

Of course, the Spurs are not at all required to grant Leonard a trade to a team of his choosing, and the Lakers aren't the only squad inquiring about a potential deal. The Spurs' star fell into the latter, so he hadn't even been in the plans until his falling out with San Antonio. "So far, they say that he's not ready to go, so we can't do anything until that happens...and then we would have to decide what's going on from there". Especially when you take into account that the Clippers got Harris, Avery Bradley and that No. 12 pick for star forward Blake Griffin during the season. That's a very different team: Kyrie Irving, Paul George and LeBron James. If Leonard chooses to leave for L.A.at the end of that season, and James chooses to explore elsewhere, then Cleveland can shift straight into a rebuild. Online sportsbook BetDSI places Boston atop the list of likely candidates. They don't exactly have any other desirable assets that could make San Antonio eager to trade their top player.

Trading Luis Scola to the Rockets and Boris Diaw to the Utah Jazz, neither of these trades contained players anywhere near the talent of Kawhi Leonard.

It was Payton who gave the inside scoop on LeBron James' son having committed to play at Sierra Canyon High School alongside Scottie Pippen Jr. and K.J. Martin, son of former National Basketball Association star Kenyon Martin.
