New team emerges as Las Vegas favorite to land Kawhi Leonard

Of course, the Spurs are in no immediate rush to trade Leonard and could go into the 2018-19 season with him on their roster if they aren't blown away by any offers.

However, if a trade can't be worked out to send Leonard to Los Angeles, the Eastern Conference is a possibility as well. 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.

According to Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post, the Raptors have "generated buzz" in the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes.

Leonard's discontent with the San Antonio Spurs has been well-publicized in recent weeks, and a handful of teams were linked to the former NBA Finals MVP. Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster have both said that the Raptors' goal is nothing short of a championship and Kawhi is the type of talent who can put that into play.

If San Antonio wants to get a deal done, the Sixers remain one of the best options in the league.

San Antonio would receive a pretty promising first-round pick while still adding two players to a team that won almost 50 games last season.

Despite their worsening relationship with Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs are still hoping that they can get valuable assets that could keep them competitive in the Western Conference. It hasn't yet been reported that Toronto has contacted San Antonio. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means. It has only been a few months, but it seems like this saga has been brewing for a billion years. The Spurs reportedly were asking for a king's ransom from the Lakers, with potential packages including L.A.'s top young players Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram and a plethora of draft picks, and the Spurs don't appear willing to budge or negotiate much.
