Spurs not entertaining trade offers for Kawhi Leonard, report says

LeBron James and Gregg Popovich

LeBron James and Gregg Popovich

The 2017-18 season was a odd one for Leonard, who only managed to appear in a total of nine games due to an issue with his quad, but it seems unlikely that he'll be changing uniforms this summer.

Ramona Shelburne and Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reported "tension" and a "looming showdown" between Leonard and the Spurs, with the team believing the player and his group have "an ulterior motive to fray the relationship and get Leonard traded to a larger market".

With FCC Set to End Net Neutrality, Senate Democrats Urge House Vote
Both the House and President Donald Trump need to sign off on the CRA for it to take effect. Senate Democrats expressed similar sentiments in their letter , which was sent on Thursday.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Kawhi Leonard are expected to meet before the NBA Draft in an effort to fix the star forward's relationship with the franchise, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

But if San Antonio does not offer Kawhi Leonard the supermax contract extension this summer, its strategy should change. "No one else can pay him that much and if San Antonio's not willing to do that without watching him play another season, seeing him play more than nine games, well then, Leonard may have a decision about whether he wants to play another year there". The Spurs are the NBA's only team capable of giving Leonard the aforementioned "super-max" contract, though it remains unclear if that will be enough to convince him to stay. Even if the relationship has been strained, it's clear the Spurs aren't ready to give up on him. The Spurs maintain that there is no divide between Leonard and the front office, and Danny Green has echoed that sentiment during recent interviews.
