LeBron James would 'let the roster come together' for Lakers — Rival GM

Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed A Lakers Fan Has Put Up 40 (Yes, 40) Billboards to Recruit Paul George

Despite rumors of Leonard wanting to play for his hometown team, as well as reports that James wants to head to L.A., the "First Take" co-host believes the tandem would be best suited with the San Antonio Spurs. When a superstar one year away from free agency says he wants out, it usually puts that team up against the wall in making a deal. However, according to this report, the Spurs are willing to trade Leonard to any team - but are also taking their time.

The San Antonio Spurs have received trade interest in Kawhi Leonard from the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers.

The Lakers have two max-contract slots, and they appear intent on offering those slots to LeBron and George. The thinking in Los Angeles is if the Lakers can acquire Leonard, it increases their chances at luring James and/or George as well.

Free agency officially opens on July 1, when restricted free agents will be allowed to sign their offer sheets, although unrestricted players can not officially sign until lunchtime on July 6.

But in the Lakers' case, the Spurs are said to have immediately rebuffed their initial effort to engage in trade talks for Leonard. According to Sam Amick of USA Today Sports, San Antonio does not want to trade Leonard within the Western Conference.

The Lakers - with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart - have the assets to spur action (pun intended). They could include restricted free agent Marcus Smart in a sign-and-trade with Smart's consent, as well.

But Popovich and the Spurs made amends with Aldridge over the course of last summer and he signed a three-year extension with the club in October.

The Celtics could likely trump any trade offer for Leonard, with their vast collection of future first-round draft picks and a current roster littered with young and promising talent.
