LeBron James can return to free agency by opting out of the final year of his contract in the next two weeks. Leonard only played nine games last season due to an injury that the Spurs seemingly cleared him for.

The Kawhi Leonard-San Antonio Spurs drama is now at an all-time high, and if you were to say a year or so ago that the quiet and reserved Kawhi Leonard would be at odds with one of the best run organizations in basketball, everyone would have called you insane. He hasn't asked the Spurs to trade him but would prefer to be traded to the Los Angles Lakers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"I'm hearing that the Clippers have a better chance at this deal than the Lakers", said former NBA player Brendan Haywood on Sirius XM NBA Radio.

Leonard is under contract for about $20.1 million next season and has a player's option for $21.3 million the following season. To be more specific, how would the four-time MVP like it if the Cavs pulled off a move that would land them embattled San Antonio Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard?

"How do you put together a group of talent but also a group of minds to be able to compete with Golden State, to be able to compete for a championship?"

Cleveland's location might be the best thing they have going for them in any potential trade talks.

"Neither the Lakers nor Clippers have had trade discussions with the Spurs, as both teams have concerns about the severity of Leonard's injury", Ganguli wrote. Brandon Ingram could be the ideal replacement for Leonard in the wing, while Kyle Kuzma will be teaming up with LaMarcus Aldridge in the Spurs' frontcourt. There are no other headline-worthy young pieces to add to the deal, aside from Cedi Osman and Ante Zizic, neither of whom will be leading parts of a package.

Kawhi Leonard had just dropped 32 points in Philadelphia, splashing jumper after jumper over Robert Covington in a game the Spurs won, 111-103.
