76ers remain 'atop the list of teams' that could land Kawhi Leonard

It's probably a longshot, but it is interesting to see that Toronto is being talked about alongside National Basketball Association heavyweights like the Los Angeles Lakers - Leonard's preferred choice - the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers could offer a combination of young players and drafts picks to the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

According to a Western Conference executive that spoke to The Undefeated, everyone is indeed waiting on a Leonard trade. "You gotta expect that he's gone sooner than later". And for someone like Kawhi, you absolutely have to get something in return.

All three of these stellar small forwards had the chance to come team up with the East's up-and-comers, help bear the fruit of the Process, and have their name live in Philadelphia 76ers sports history.

And it is no secret that the All-Star forward wants to go to his California hometown, be it via a trade this summer or when he has the option to enter free agency in 12 months' time.

Schumer: Trump picked Kavanaugh for protection from Mueller
Judge Kavanaugh recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing an undocumented teenage immigrant to have an abortion. Many of Trump's most outspoken critics in the entertainment industry were quick to rail against the Supreme Court nominee.

The Spurs reportedly are asking the world for Leonard from the Lakers - packages including L.A.'s top young players and a pile of draft picks - and don't appear willing to budge or negotiate much. "Not all of them fit, but a lot of them do".

A trade to the Lakers is still possible although it is more likely that - with no other team potentially willing to make a trade - they will wait for him to become a free agent next year and sign him that way. "If you have to give up a lot of stuff, you factor that in and take that into account".

"I never said that before because I was holding it until now".

"If the right situation comes where we can acquire someone that can really add value to our program and the cost of it isn't prohibitive, then we'll move forward and do that. If we get the right deal, we will do it", he added.
