The San Antonio Spurs are engaged with several teams in trade talks regarding All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard, including the Los Angeles Lakers and http://www.authenticcolumbusbluejackets.com/authentic-seth-jones-jersey Boston Celtics, league sources told ESPN.
The Lakers re-engaged the Spurs in pursuit of Kawhi Leonard. The Lakers envision a Seth Jones Jersey trade in which San Antonio would get something similar to what the Cavs received for Kyrie Irving or the Pacers acquired for Paul George. The Spurs value Leonard higher.
The Spurs are clearly open to making a deal in the short term, but they remain in pursuit of a major return of assets for Leonard, a two-time first-team All-NBA player. San Antonio has had hopes of repairing its tattered relationship with Leonard and ultimately getting to a comfort level with offering the $219 million super maximum contract extension. Leonard can opt out of his current deal and become a free agent next summer.
The Lakers are willing to include DeAndre Jordan Womens Jersey former No. 2 pick Brandon Ingram and a future first-round pick in a package for Leonard, but the Spurs are seeking a far more complete haul of young Lakers players and future picks, league sources said.
With the emergence of Ben Simmons as a modern-day Magic Johnson and a healthy Joel Embiid offering a great imitation of Hakeem Olajuwon, the Sixers look like a team that will be competing for championships in the near future. If last year’s No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz can reconfigure his shot and earn significant minutes, the 76ers suddenly become a team that has three of the best young players in the league.
As currently constructed, the Celtics might be http://www.authenticclippersstore.com/Deandre_Jordan_Jersey the most logical challenger to the Warriors. The injury-plagued squad gave James and the Cavs all they could handle in the Eastern Conference finals. If not for a legendary Game 7 performance from James (35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists) and the Celtics shooting 7-of-39 from beyond the arc, Boston would have represented the East in the NBA Finals.
