Latest Carmelo Anthony Kawhi Celtics Lakers NBA rumors

But it's taking a lot longer to figure out which team Kawhi Leonard will end up playing for next season.

The Philadelphia 76ers are among the teams that are interested in acquiring Kawhi Leonard via trade, but the star forward likely isn't going anywhere until the San Antonio Spurs place a more realistic price tag on him.

Instead, he still wants to go to his native Los Angeles but his preference is now the Clippers.

"I'll show him!" - France's Giroud aims to prove Thierry Henry wrong
Martinez knows Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe is a big threat, but he wants to pay attention to the whole picture. Goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris echoed Deschamps' sentiments on Henry and called the occasion "special".

For weeks, it had been known Leonard wanted out of San Antonio as a move to the Los Angeles Lakers was seemingly his number one priority.

"I think even just based what we did this offseason, we are going to get better and move closer to our goal", Harris said, "which is that National Basketball Association championship that we keep talking [about]".

Leonard's relationship has deteriorated with the Spurs' organization after ESPN reported that the former NBA Finals MVP believes the organization mishandled his quadriceps injury, as well as comments made by Popovich and teammate Tony Parker regarding his injury as Leonard sat out most of the season.

Trump administration freezes risk adjustment payments
Eventually, experts say, some insurers could simply get fed up and exit ObamaCare markets, leading to fewer choices for consumers. The agency says the court ruling also prevents it from collecting additional risk-adjustment funds until the issue is resolved.

Along with the Boston Celtics, the Sixers are one of the few teams other than the Lakers that have the assets to trade for Leonard.

The Spurs reportedly are asking the world for Leonard from the Lakers - packages including L.A.'s top young players and a pile of draft picks - and don't appear willing to budge or negotiate much. It's expanded a surprisingly small list of potential trade destinations to include possible front-runner Philadelphia, as well as a new team that could be entering the mix.

So, if the "buzz" is real - and I'm not doubting Bontemps - what would the Raptors have to part with in order to land a superstar like Leonard?
