Injuries limited Leonard to just nine games last season, but he averaged a career-high 25.5 points per game in the previous season, in addition to 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
Some type of combination of DeMar DeRozan, Pascal Siakim, OG Anunoby, Serge Ibaka and a first-round pick has been bandied about in recent weeks.
The Spurs are hoping to land an All-Star caliber player and picks in exchange for Kawhi, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers have also been rumoured in the running for Leonard, but over the past week, most in National Basketball Association front offices believed that Toronto were in the best position to offer the Spurs a hefty package.
Wojnarowski reported Leonard still insists on being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and could use the camp to showcase he is fully healthy from a quadriceps injury that forced him to miss 73 regular season games and the playoffs. We won 59 games previous year without Kawhi Leonard, he's better than DeMar DeRozan'.
Kawhi Leonard could leave the San Antonio Spurs - but where is he most likely to go? Additionally, Leonard would be ineligible for a supermax contract if he signs with a new team as a free agent next summer.
Well, we still don't, but now at least we know what they weren't willing to part with for the disgruntled Spurs star.
According to ESPN, the Celtics have not included Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, or Al Horford in their trade package, while the Sixers have not included Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, or Markelle Fultz.
Leonard has grown increasingly frustrated with his role in San Antonio and his relationship with the team and demanded a trade before free agency began. The team continues to be asking for an all-star-level player, an elite-level prospect, as well as multiple draft picks in return for Leonard.
