Could they all remain with the teams with which they played last season? The Celtics has a lot to offer, but will Danny Ainge be willing to part with Tatum for a high-profile rental like Leonard.

The Lakers are the favorite to win the LeBron James free agency sweepstakes, and the team is reportedly trying to complete a trade with the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard in an effort to ensure James will sign in July.

For all the news that has come out about Kawhi demanding to leave the Spurs, super max money plus LeBron James is something that no other team would be able to offer.

It's also worth noting that Leonard is one of the few players in the National Basketball Association who can contain James, another reason why James would potentially want to play with Leonard instead of against him.

The decision sets up a wild National Basketball Association free agency period that begins Sunday, with teams trying to assemble talent and money to make a run at top stars like James and Paul George, who opted out Thursday from Oklahoma City. Philadelphia and Houston are interested in pursuing George now that he's told Oklahoma City that he won't opt in for the final year of his contract, according to ESPN. While Leonard wants to be traded to the Lakers, early talks between the franchise and the Spurs have not got off to a promising start.

Sam Amick of USA Today reported hearing "rumblings" Thursday of a "Godfather Lakers offer" to the Spurs. "With San Antonio believed to be uninterested in Ball, the Lakers have three other intriguing young players-Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart-plus their future first-round picks to include in a deal". San Antonio's team doctors cleared him to return, but Leonard's personal doctors did not.

The Lakers and San Antonio Spurs have been in talks on a potential trade, and now with George no longer an option, some believe L.A. could really turn up the heat on acquiring Leonard. They have established stars in Kyrie Irving, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward. He wants to be traded, but only to the Los Angeles Lakers or Los Angeles Clippers.

We don't think Kawhi Leonard is going to end up on the Los Angeles Lakers.

"This will be about more than just this summer's transaction".
