Leonard has a year remaining on his current deal in San Antonio, meaning his only exit route during the offseason would require the Spurs to accept a mammoth trade for his services.

During an appearance on Tom Haberstroh's Back to Back podcast, Wright detailed that Kawhi's people literally escorted Leonard to a different part of the building when the Spurs management visited NY to check on him. "As soon as those guys arrived to the building, Kawhi's people grabbed him and sequestered him to another part of the building so the Spurs people couldn't even see him".

Some thought it was just Popovich being his normal, flippant self, but it looks like there was indeed very little, if any communication between Leonard in the Spurs as the season progressed.

It certainly sounds like Ainge would do the deal for Leonard if he could spin something like Terry Rozier and the draft picks off to San Antonio. If they hid from San Antonio, one of the most respected organizations in sports, it could raise concerns for other teams about what could happen to them.

According to ESPN, the 27-year-old would prefer a move to the Lakers over any other franchise in the league but the 16-time National Basketball Association champions are reluctant to sacrifice the majority of their young core to satisfy the Spurs' trade demands.
