And with the Nets, Bulls and Hawks spending their cap space, it makes it harder to assemble a multi-team trade.
"Now as it becomes tougher and tougher for a trade to the Lakers or the Clippers to be consummated without another team helping out, I think you have to open up to the fact Toronto could be legitimately, actually, in this game right now for Kawhi". "I think the Raptors are in the driver's seat, and I'd want to know, what would your offer be if you were (Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri)?"

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs looks on during the first half of a game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on November 18, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.
Last week we covered the two fundamental risks involved in dealing for Leonard. The team previously had been an afterthought in trade rumors involving Leonard.
The report also indicates the Lakers are not prioritizing a trade for Leonard, opting instead to trust he will want to join them in free agency next summer.
Leonard and Popovich reportedly met in San Diego days later to determine if the two sides could fix the relationship. His slow recovery from it led to a rift between he and the team, but the Spurs could be retaining hope they can convince Leonard to return to play in San Antonio next season.
Three years after his last contract, the disgruntled star is now eligible for a super-max extension - five years and $221 million - but only with the Spurs.
