When word came out that Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard wanted out of San Antonio, social media erupted with possible destinations. Leonard, when healthy, is one of the best players in basketball, and his move could change the complexion of talent in the NBA.
Bookmaker.eu offers these odds who who’s most likely to draw Leonard’s service:
Los Angeles Lakers: 1/2
San Antonio Spurs: 5/1
Cleveland Cavaliers: 10/1
Boston Celtics: 12/1
Philadelphia 76ers: 15/1
Los Angeles Clippers: 15/1
Phoenix Suns: 15/1
Milwaukee Bucks: 20/1
Atlanta Hawks/Field: 50/1
But, since the Spurs have leverage in Leonard's ultimate destination, there is speculation they will only look to trade him to the Eastern Conference.
If so ...
But at least one ESPN personality thinks Los Angeles is Kawhi’s ... strong preference.
And while the Hawks seem to be an unlikely trade partner, that hasn't stopped some from dreaming.
