Raptors Have Made ‘Compelling Offer’ For Kawhi Leonard

He took to Instagram late in the night, writing in a three-part post "Told one thing & the outcome another".

Despite vehemently pushing for his exit out of San Antonio, Leonard's discontent with being shipped to Canada is somewhat understandable given his demand to play for a big market - the Los Angeles Lakers in particular.

"The teams that would be used as facilitators for these deals - the Bulls, the Nets, and the Hawks - have all used their cap space", Windhorst said, adding that since most teams are unwilling to part with their prime young players, the Raptors have "defaulted" to the top of list.

This has now been backed up by reliable Yahoo Sports NBA insider Shams Charania who has revealed that the two teams are now in "serious trade talks".

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.

"Talks between the Spurs and Raptors have intensified in recent days, league sources said", he wrote.

ESPN says an agreement in principle could be reached as soon as Wednesday. Leonard was drafted 15th overall in 2011 and when healthy is regarded as the league's best two-way player. And it sure seems that neither star player would be happy with the trade! The Raptors were the top seed in the Eastern Conference last season but were swept out of the National Basketball Association playoffs by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, leading to the dismissal of Coach of the Year victor Dwane Casey. Leonard's camp has been making it clear that he would like to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers next summer. Toronto would be able to offer Leonard a five-year, $190 million contract next summer.

However, this could be a very risky deal for the Eastern Conference outfit to make as it's unlikely that Leonard will commit long-term as he'll become a free agent in 2019.
