Sixers are only East team Kawhi Leonard is interested in

Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard GETTYThe Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers are keen to acquire Kawhi Leonard this summer

Paul George, LeBron James and DeMarcus Cousins are the biggest names in the league to already announce their immediate future with the latter two changing teams. His most desirable destination would be one of the Los Angeles teams, seeing as how Leonard is an L.A. resident - preferably the Clippers now that James has taken over the Lakers half of the city.

With the 28-year-old now having a year left on his deal, the Spurs have some leverage in that they can choose who they trade Leonard to or keep him for a year where he can then leave as an unrestricted free agent.

"Sixers are the only Eastern Conference team [Kawhi] will consider signing with ..." "However, the Spurs want two players - again, believed to be Saric and Covington - and three future first-round picks".

Both the Timberwolves and San Antonio would face the risk of losing both stars in free agency next year but the Spurs may feel more confident about being able to keep hold of Butler.

Signs of a potential Kawhi Leonard trade to the Sixers are still in play, as the 2014 Finals MVP is reportedly "OK" with signing a contract extension with Philly, which could make Gasol a bundle asset in a trade scenario, per Sheridan.

While some fans might have expected Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be chosen for this role, the newlyweds did not make the cut. According to reports , Queen Elizabeth II then asked her personal dresser Angela Kelly for a replica of the gown to be made.


As mentioned, any potential deal with San Antonio will likely have to include an all-star like DeRozan or Lowry, along with a package of young players and picks.

Naturally, when a player of Leonard's stature becomes disgruntled and consequently available for trade discussions, there are going to be a host of teams competing for his services.

According to Bontemps, the Philadelphia 76ers have consistently remained atop the list of teams expected to land Leonard.

Leonard appeared in just nine games last season due to a right quad injury that limited him to just over 23 minutes and 16 points per game.
