Sixers are only East team Kawhi Leonard is interested in

Latest Carmelo Anthony Kawhi Celtics Lakers NBA rumors

While LeBron James' free agency period was relatively quick and painless, the National Basketball Association has had its fair share of extended drama with the Kawhi Leonard situation in San Antonio. Fans hoping for larger scale change with the organization have been left wondering what magic can be worked in the trade market, and the league as a whole has been quiet on that front, with most moves seemingly waiting for an ending to the Kawhi Leonard saga, one that the Raptors seemed to not be involved in.

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

Tim Bontemps also reports that the Philadelphia 76ers have "consistently remained atop the list of teams expected to land Leonard".

While there's been no concrete reporting that Toronto is actively trying to break up their starting backcourt, there's been plenty of speculation that the team would look to trade one of their All-Stars. The Raptors have five straight years of 48-plus wins and no NBA Finals appearances, culminating this past season with a second-round sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers as the East's No.1 seed.

It may not be ideal for the Spurs, but it's one that would get the deal done.

Tropical Storm Beryl weakens as it moves into Caribbean
A tropical storm warning is in effect for Dominica and a tropical storm watch is in effect for Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Currently, the tropical storm is expected to dissipate over the weekend east of the Lesser Antilles islands.

Acquiring one of Toronto's guards would keep San Antonio competitive in 2018-2019.

The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly targeting San Antonio Spurs general manager R.C. Buford as a potential candidate for their vacant GM spot.

They've already changed their coach, despite him leading the team to the most successful season in franchise history. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means.

The Spurs come well below at +400, with the Lakers (+500) and Clippers (+600) separated only by 100 in the odds race.
