Kawhi Leonard Telling Rival Teams He Plans to Sign With LA Team

May JohnsonJun 21, 2018

According to reports, he's upset with the team over their handling of the leg injury that forced him to miss nearly the entirety of the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season, as well as public comments made by guard Tony Parker and head coach Gregg Popovich.

Zhaire Smith was recruited by the Texas Tech Raiders as a three-star recruit, but after just a year in Lubbock, he's now getting pegged as among the top picks in this Thursday's NBA Draft in Brooklyn.

Lakers star Kyle Kuzma added to the discussion on Wednesday night with a tweet that put Lakers fans into a frenzy.

Leonard has his heart set on landing with the Lakers in 2019, when he becomes a free agent, but it's looking increasingly likely that he won't be able to arrive in LA any sooner. With five picks left to play with and a stockpile of present and future assets, expect plenty of movement from Brett Brown's squad on draft night. Even with a $219 million super-max extension available to him this summer, it's becoming increasingly certain that Leonard will be donning another team's jersey come October.

Mohamed Salah left out of Egypt's starting XI against Uruguay
On Salah's absence, he added: "If Mo Salah had been on the pitch, I'm sure Egypt would have benefited". The World Cup Egypt vs Uruguay match will be played at Ekaterinburg Arena, Russia.

The team will have to trade picks and/or stash some drafted players overseas from this draft.

The San Antonio Spurs-Kawhi Leonard saga continues to get messier.

Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Leonard remains “irate” about the public comments that Parker made about his quad injury. No one knows whether they can trust the word of the advisors around him.

The former first round pick has been talked about as a potential trade chip between the Spurs and Lakers for Kawhi Leonard. Popovich told the big man that they wouldn't deal him, and the two sides eventually made it work. They've made smart move after smart move over the previous year or so; we will see if they continue them and hold off the temptation to drain their roster and assets.
