LeBron holds all the cards, but this may be turning into the summer of Kawhi.
After playing only 9 games last season, it was obvious that Kawhi Leonard wanted out of San Antonio, but that was made pretty much official yesterday...
Assuming he does get traded, this could have a major effect on LeBron's decision.
Our first post was all about LeBron joining or creating a team. LeBron has never just joined a team, he's always brought in some help along with him.
Wherever Kawhi ends up, could very will be LeBron's landing spot as well.
Immediately after this report came out, Woj also reported that the Lakers were his preferred landing spot...
Now, not only are we checking the LeBron odds, but were also paying attention to the Kawhi odds as well..
The Lakers are the favorite to land both LeBron and Kawhi.
Here's a tweet that scares the hell out of me...
For those who don't know, Jeanie Buss is the owner of the Lakers.
It seems that LA is gearing up to do what they have always done, add superstars.
The Lakers may be able to land LeBron and Paul George, but do we really think Pop is going to trade Kawhi Leonard to the Lakers?
I personally can't see it.
Paul George desired to be traded to the Lakers last summer as well, and we saw how that turned out.
Could this be a similar situation?
The other nighmare senario is the Celtics landing Kawhi.
As we proposed in our day 3 article, the Celtics could offer Kyrie Irving and possibly a pick to the Spurs for Kawhi.
If that were the case, it would certainly be the best offer on the table.
According to reports, the Celtics also tried to trade for Kawhi at last season's trade deadline..
Sixers in play
Jabari Young, Spurs beat writer for mySA, believes that Philly is indeed a likely landing spot.
The Obvious question then becomes, what’s the price?
The one thing that the Sixers have going for them, that the others don't, is Pop's relationship with Brett Brown.
I can't see Pop negotiating with Magic or Danny Ainge, but I could see him at least having a productive conversation with his former protege.
Bobby Marks posted this possible trade scenario earlier this week...
Would you do it?
The issue with Kawhi is that he will be a free agent in 2019. The Sixers can't afford to pull an OKC and trade for a player that will leave a year later.
But, this looks amazing...
Leonard could be moved as early as this week, which could set the table for LeBron.
It's starting to look like if you want LeBron, you better make a deal for Kawhi.
So while this is #LeBronWatch, it may very well be the summer of Kawhi.
