The latest NBA rumors involving San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard have focused on the reports of his absence from the lineup. Leonard was an NBA MVP candidate a season ago and has gone missing in action this latest season due to injury concerns. Those issues have caused him to remain out of games for a large part of the season, and now he’s expected to miss the postseason. After a recent loss to the Golden State Warriors, fans in San Antonio are worried about him returning to the team next season too.
As reported by Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania on Sunday, Leonard will continue working to rehab his right quadriceps injury as his team attempts to pull off an improbable first-round upset against the reigning NBA champs. That means Leonard won’t be available should his team even miraculously win this matchup. Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich also said that it was up to Kawhi’s “group” of medical staff as to when he returns to their lineup. Based on the rumors going around, plenty of other teams are trying to lure Kawhi Leonard away from San Antonio to join their cause.
One of the latest teams mentioned was the Los Angeles Clippers who were said to have started preparing a trade package for Kawhi Leonard. USA Today’s Sam Amick reported that a source that wanted to remain anonymous said the Clippers are interested. Amick also speculated that the Clippers would be willing to pay the price to get Leonard on their roster. That might include trading two first-round draft picks to San Antonio and other players as part of their package for Leonard.
