Cavaliers among teams to call Spurs about Kawhi Leonard

New York Knicks: Kawhi Leonard wants to leave San Antonio, wont join Knicks Spurs fan burns Kawhi Leonard jersey

Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reported the Lakers "have always been Leonard's preferred destination", although they are concerned about the extent of his injury.

Both the Lakers and the Clippers have expressed their desire to add Kawhi Leonard to their team this offseason.

The Spurs don't have to trade Leonard, and they may not want to send him to a Western Conference team. Cleveland, meanwhile, eventually traded away two of the principle pieces it received from the Celtics at the National Basketball Association trade deadline, essentially conceding the mistakes it made in the Irving deal.

The NBA world was rocked over the weekend by the news that San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard reportedly wants out of town.

None of this means that the Celtics are definitely going to get Leonard, but it certainly improves their chances if the Spurs' list of potential trade partners has been cut in half.

And if a trade were to go down, it would have be done after the Cavs make their pick at the No. 8 spot.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been one of several team to call the San Antonio Spurs about the availability of Kawhi Leonard.

Maybe a three-team trade scenario exists in which dealing the No.8 pick, Kevin Love and other assets could give Cleveland Leonard. The Cavs would have Leonard on their roster for the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season, but what about beyond that? But what exactly could Cleveland trade? The Boston Celtics would be interested in Leonard if he becomes available in trade talks, league sources told Wojnarowski.

The 26-year-old played just nine games in the 2017-18 season, with a mysterious quad injury keeping him out for longer than initially expected.

James knows all-too-well how good Leonard is, having seen him win the 2014 NBA Finals MVP award when the Spurs eliminated the Miami Heat in five games.

The Spurs shouldn't worry where Leonard lands.
