Kawhi Leonard to Raptors? Roster & Starting 5 if Traded

Kawhi Leonard to Raptors? Roster & Starting 5 if Traded”

Another team that has been mentioned as a possible landing spot is the Philadelphia 76ers.

Excluding the "field" option, the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers rank third and fourth on the list while the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics are tied for fifth.

The fact Leonard can become a free agent in 2019 presents some issues for other teams looking to build a trade package for Leonard as he has reportedly expressed a desire to join the Lakers. They trail only the Raptors and Leonard's current team the Spurs in odds.

The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard.

A couple of weeks ago, Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated reported that the Sixers "held serious internal discussions" about a Leonard trade. And another turn was added on Thursday when OddsShark declared the Toronto Raptors as even-money favorites to land the services of the Spurs superstar for the upcoming season. With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, perhaps Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri is willing to swing for the fences and move DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry in such a deal.

As the Kawhi Leonard saga continues to unfold in San Antonio, the question on everyone's mind is where will he land. However, teams like Toronto could look at what happened with Paul George last year, when the Oklahoma City Thunder took a chance by trading for him even though it seemed like he would be a one-year rental. Unfortunately, it has been a while since we have last seen a healthy Kawhi Leonard.

Green says Leonard told him earlier this year that he wanted to come back and be a Spur.

As Bontemps mentioned, though, acquiring Leonard would likely cost DeRozan or Lowry, the two stars that helped Toronto to the top seed in the Eastern Conference past year. It seems to have come from two recent stories.
