How The Sacramento Kings Can Land Kawhi Leonard?

Leonard is eligible to receive a five-year, $219 million contract extension from the Spurs this summer. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski followed up Charania's report by noting the Los Angeles native has L.A. -preferably the Lakers-atop his wish list.

If the Spurs comply with Leonard's will to leave the franchise, then depending on where the superstar gets traded to will largely impact the balance of power in the National Basketball Association. That could complicate any potential trade involving either one, since the team receiving a veteran All-Star would want some confidence that player would re-sign there.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported in June that Leonard and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich would meet to try to fix the relationship.

So, yes, the Spurs will likely grant Leonard's wish. Unless the Spurs could somehow change the two-time Defensive Player of the Year's mind - and quickly - the pairing is destined for a divorce. The NBA draft will be held on June 21.

Can the Los Angeles Lakers sign the "Big Three" of LeBron James, Paul George, and Chris Paul in free agency? ESPN did not report the package the Celtics offered.

Jose Gimenez has scored in consecutive appearances for Uruguay, also scoring in a friendly against Uzbekistan. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.

Sending back Ball or Ingram alone probably wouldn't get a deal done with the Spurs. Similarly, the Knicks have a slightly lower pick in the upcoming draft and a young player suddenly prone to stress fractures to offer.

The relationship between Leonard and the Spurs seemed to fracture slowly.

The Spurs may be forced into trading Leonard, as Leonard can become a free agent in 2019.

With rumors that LeBron James could be headed to the Lakers, will Leonard try to force his way to L.A.to force another super-team?

The NBA offseason already is heating up.
