New team emerges as Las Vegas favorite to land Kawhi Leonard

Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard

"To this point in trade discussions, the Lakers have not shown a sense of urgency to make a Kawhi Leonard trade".

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.

Multiple teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, have reportedly engaged the Spurs in trade talks, but neither of those teams are the favorite to add Leonard to their roster, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.

The Toronto Raptors haven't been considered one of the leaders in the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes, but at least one sportsbook seems to think a deal might be coming.

Emery addresses speculation about the future of key midfielder
But, Emery insisted his squad needs to be bursting at the seams with players willing to step up. Then we are looking for players whose personality is the best in the dressing room.

Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post noted on Monday that, "The Philadelphia 76ers have consistently remained atop the list of teams expected to land Leonard".

The Spurs keep trying to raise the ante for Leonard, saying that another team is offering more, according to sources.

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.

Reports of Toronto as a possible trade partner with San Antonio began to surface earlier in the week. Which team will he play for next season? It has only been a few months, but it seems like this saga has been brewing for a billion years. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means. But this could be good news for Philly fans, as landing a player of Leonard's abilities might give the Sixers a leg up on the now wide open Eastern Conference.
