Kawhi Leonard Trade Offers ‘Underwhelming’ For Spurs So Far

PM Roundup Olivia Culpo Germany Lost In Russia...Again Lakers Feeling Heat To Acquire Kawhi Leonard PM Roundup Olivia Culpo Germany Lost In Russia...Again Lakers Feeling Heat To Acquire Kawhi Leonard

The key to getting LeBron James may now be Kawhi Leonard, and the Los Angeles Lakers are going for it.

2nd trade package: Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle sign and trade, Josh Hart, future 1st round and 2nd round pick.

The Pelicans and Lakers each called center DeMarcus Cousins after free agency began early Sunday morning, and Cousins is expected to schedule meetings with both teams, according to The Undefeated.

James' media ventures that include everything from product endorsements to running his own production company take place in Los Angeles. He holds averages of 26.5 points and 11.7 rebounds over the past three seasons, and was named an All-Star for the fourth time last season before his injury.

Alternatively, the Lakers could also opt to keep their powder dry for another 12 months, as Leonard will become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Key GOP senator says no Roe v. Wade opponent for high court
President Trump has announced that he will name a candidate to replace retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9. Collins and fellow senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are the only two nominally pro-choice Republicans in the Senate.

That puts the Lakers in an even tougher spot - do they give up the assets for Leonard now, or wait until he can sign with them next year?

However, Lonzo's father LaVar Ball is another story.

The Pelicans, instead, agreed to a one-year, $2.7 million deal with New Orleans native Elfrid Payton and a two-year, $18 million deal with Julius Randle to replace their two vocal leaders from the 2017-18 season. "I'm the reigning two-time champion... why would I think about doing something like that?'" If they really are scrambling to find another first round pick they can ship over to Texas, that really supports the idea of the Spurs holding out and making everyone else sweat.

It sounds like the San Antonio Spurs haven't received a trade offer good enough for superstar forward Kawhi Leonard.

The Spurs aren't likely to get equal value for Leonard, who, when healthy, is a top three or four player in the National Basketball Association. The Raptors ran the risk of losing Van Vleet, a player that really came to his own as the core distributor on the league's best 2nd unit.
