Things that must happen for a Kawhi Leonard trade

Even then, the rumors of the Cavs trading for Leonard were intriguing enough for Cavaliers Nation to speculate that this might be an attempt on Cleveland's part to convince LeBron James to stay with the team instead of testing the free agency waters this offseason.

Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter (11) drives to the basket between San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard (2) and guard Danny Green (14) during the third quarter in game six of the second round of the NBA Playoffs at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Leonard has reportedly requested a trade from the Spurs and his preferred destination is to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Aside from the fact that Kawhi Leonard's contract expires after the 2018-19 season, teams are reportedly concerned about trading for someone with the injury history that he has.

There were disagreements between the Spurs, Leonard, and his camp throughout his rehab process over the best course of action to take to deal with his injury.

Talk in National Basketball Association circles is that Leonard wants OUT of San Antonio. and IN to the Purple and Gold.

The Lakers, Celtics, Sixers, and Clippers were rumored to be the former Finals MVP's likeliest suitors, after he made it known he no longer wanted to be a Spur, per The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor. Just ask Dan Gilbert and Cleveland's front office if Isaiah Thomas was really the best fit for the Cavs, or Vlade Divac if signing George Hill or Vince Carter really adhered to his team's timeline or best interests. Leonard's become a terrific three-point shooter in recent seasons, and he'd have plenty of open looks by sharing the court with James. If Leonard was perfectly healthy and had no concerns surrounding him, the asking price for him could be young talent plus several first-round picks. "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".
