The Toronto Raptors were the #1 seed in the East past year, but they were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second straight season.
The Toronto Raptors are now the betting favorites to make a trade with the San Antonio Spurs in the 2018 National Basketball Association offseason. When healthy, Leonard is a significant upgrade over either Lowry or DeRozan. The Raptors don't have any developing players that would be considered untouchable.
It may not be ideal for the Spurs, but it's one that would get the deal done.
According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, it is believed that the Sixers would have a hard time getting Buford to leave San Antonio for Philly.

While mean-spirited in name, the contest promotes advocacy and adoption for all dogs, regardless of how mangy the mutts may be. No pooch could beat out 9-year-old English bulldog " Zsa Zsa ", with an exceptionally droopy tongue.
However, the reported stories say that the Lakers have been unwilling to attach any of their best young players in a trade for Kawhi, and the Celtics' and Sixers' offers have been similar, which opens the door slightly for another team to enter.
Both players are owed a lot of money over the next few seasons.
San Antonio Spurs All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard wants to be traded and there is no shortage of teams lining up to get him.
There doesn't seem to be a flawless offer out there for the Spurs, at least not at the moment.
Many outlets began reporting in June that the 26-year-old has a strong desire to play for the Lakers as he's a native of Los Angeles, but trade talks have stalled between the two Western Conference rivals. Leonard's odds of starting the season with the Spurs are the same as his odds of playing for the Raptors in the season opener. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means.
