  • Blazers have engaged Spurs in Kawhi Leonard trade talks: Report

While the Raptors risk losing Leonard after one season when he becomes a free agent, DeRozan signed a five-year deal with the Raptors worth $139 million in 2016.

Can Leonard get them over the hump?

Leonard doesn't want to play in Toronto, ESPN reported, but stands to make $20 million next season and seems to have no health concerns, indicating he might attend the U.S. national team camp next week in Las Vegas.

Even though losing a player of Leonard's caliber (top three in the league when healthy) is hard, the Spurs got a four-time All-Star in DeRozan in return. They don't know. And considering that Kawhi Leonard shares his feelings with nearly no one for public consumption, maybe he doesn't know what the future holds, now and going forward.

With the Raptors acquiring Leonard, this likely means that the Lakers won't be trading for Leonard this season unless something goes very wrong in Toronto during the season. "For San Antonio, they get a good player in DeRozan and Poeltl can play, too".

Cheers for Meghan and Kate as they arrive at Wimbledon
The pair had an overnight stay aboard the Royal Train before attending Royal Ascot, which was her Royal Ascot debut. Ahead of Saturday's Wimbledon final, Williams had opened up about her "wonderful friendship" with Markle.

Earlier this month, superstar LeBron James chose to sign in free agency with the Lakers. "We wish him well, but at this point, it's time to move on", Pop said. Without a physical, it's tough to gauge whether Leonard is healthy enough to play now, or if he's over the issue that cost him 73 games last season. If he can return to form after recovering from injury, the Raptors will have one of the best players in the National Basketball Association in his prime.

They kept scheduling his return and talking about his return and planning his return until they stopped talking about it - and the dressing room moved in all directions - and nobody can really give you a straight answer on how bad Leonard's quadricep injury is, was or will be. If the Raptors are intent on keeping Serge Ibaka in the lineup, they could experiment with Leonard playing the two. The team also boasts recent No. 2 picks Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, although both could conceivably be traded to add more veteran players around James. He played two seasons for San Diego State before being taken No. 15 overall by the Indiana Pacers in the 2011 draft.

For the Spurs, this ends the standoff between them and Leonard and their attempt to keep him in the Alamo City.

What if Kawhi just never reports to Toronto?

Gregg Popovich will make him better because great coaches do that. If you love sports, know digital sales, and can throw your weight behind an aggressive commission based opportunity than we would love to talk to you.
