Spurs and Lakers believe Kawhi Leonard trade clinches LeBron to LA

Lakers’ plan unfolding Want Kawhi as Le Bron sweetener

According to a new report by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst, Boston has sent another trade offer to the San Antonio Spurs for their disgruntled superstar.

In order to attempt to sweeten any potential deal they make for Leonard, the Lakers are reportedly attempting to add another future 1st round pick and are willing to take on salary dumps to do so. Getting Leonard could be worthwhile on its own, but the LeBron factor could cause Los Angeles and Philadelphia to assemble stronger trade packages than Boston would.

While the Celtics reportedly reached out to the Spurs about Leonard prior to the trade deadline last season, conversations between the two sides as of late have been stagnant. The Spurs have acknowledged their fractured relationship with Leonard, but general manager R.C. Buford recently said the team's first option would be to retain the 26-year-old All-Star.

"He'll be a free agent next year and he may hold the key to making it easier for LeBron to commit in free agency to the Lakers".

The Lakers have until 11:59 p.m. on Friday for James to opt in or out of his contract, which has implications about Los Angeles signing him outright or having to trade for him.

The team might also might figure, quite reasonably, that Leonard would entice LeBron James.

The Lakers could potentially construct a superteam of LeBron, Kawhi and Paul George - but according to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, LeBron is already planning for a future partnership with Golden State's Kevin Durant.

What the Spurs do from here on out is anyone's guess, but they are handling the end of the Leonard situation with aplomb. Many options for him are complicated, however, and it seems as if there's no ideal fit for him.

But the Lakers have Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball (who'd probably have to be conveyed to a third team) to forma package.

The Lakers of course aren't the only team that would love to land James.

The Spurs would then have to decide if it's a better deal than what the Lakers and Celtics have to offer.
