Kawhi Leonard More Open To Clippers Trade

Published

on

With LeBron James taking his talents to the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard is now more open to landing with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania (via The Herd with Colin Cowherd).

Per Charania’s appearance:

One thing that’s been made abundantly clear. I’m going to stress this. There’s no guarantee if Kawhi Leonard hits the market next summer that he’s going to sign with the Lakers, period. I think his options have broadened a little bit, just inside L.A. There’s another team, obviously, in L.A. I think he’d be very much open to the Clippers.

And there’s a belief around the league that if the Sixers came hard, that there could be a potential there for him potentially being there long-term.

I don’t think there’s much interest in the Boston Celtics scenario for him.

Around Kawhi, what’s been made abundantly clear is there’s not an interest to go join a super team. I don’t think he’s jumping for joy that LeBron James is in L.A. with the Lakers. If anything, that’s going to make him look maybe more toward the Clippers. Because this is a guy that won Finals MVP against LeBron James. You think he’s amped up and wants to join LeBron now? I think that’s been overstated, and the Spurs are beginning to realize that and beginning to realize that we might have a broadened market for him.

The Philadelphia 76ers pulled off a big trade this morning, a day before the NBA Trade deadline, when they acquired Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Clippers will send Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and Mike Scott to the Sixers for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, a 2020 first-rounder, a 2021 unprotected 1st rounder via the Miami Heat, and two second rounders.

Harris is pouring in a career year, posting 20.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists a game this season, All-Star caliber numbers.

Wojnarowski goes on to report that this won’t be a rental for the 76ers, as they fully intend to keep both Harris and Jimmy Butler a part of their core moving forward.

The Sixers are budgeting to re-sign and keep a new Big 4, including free agents Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler this summer, league sources tell ESPN. Philadelphia has long-term plans for Harris, Butler, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons together.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 6, 2019

Clippers’ Danilo Gallinari Hoping Milos Teodosic Stays with Team

Los Angeles Clippers forward Danilo Gallinari is hoping that the team will be able to keep his teammate, guard Milos Tedosic, long-term and is hoping Tedosic decides to stay.

“Milos has been playing more minutes lately and he has played very well for us every time he has played,” Gallinari said, according to EuroHoops.

“We can use him more and more, so I’m hopeful that he will stay with us. He’s a great guy and we have a very good relationship. So, hopefully, he can stay with us for the whole season.”

Tedosic has expressed an interest in returning to Europe, which has placed a cloud of uncertainty over his future with the Clippers, and in the NBA.

“I think I definitely won’t stay here because… I came, I saw how it looks and somehow… I enjoy more and it’s nicer for me to play in Europe. So, I will return to Europe for sure, will it be during this season or at the end, we’ll see.” Teodosic said, during an interview with Glas Amerike.

Despite Gallinari’s plea, it may not be in the cards for either party to continue their relationship as Teodosic has fallen out of the rotation.
