(Kawhi can opt out of his contract following next season and become an unrestricted free agent). Despite his credentials, Leonard missed all but nine games of the 2017-18 season due to a nagging quad injury.

Kawhi Leonard could leave the San Antonio Spurs - but where is he most likely to go?

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs looks for a pass while under pressure from LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the second half at Quicken Loans Arena on January 30, 2016 in Cleveland.

A host of teams will be interested in making their move for him with Pluto claiming National Basketball Association finalists Cleveland Cavaliers one of them. But if the Lakers and Clippers are the only team with assurances Leonard will re-sign next summer, they could offer more, even assembling a package from a shallower pool of assets. And the Philadelphia 76ers can put together a great one as well.

While LeBron James and Paul George have been the most talked about superstars, a new name has seriously entered the fray in Kawhi Leonard.

The Spurs probably wouldn't trade Leonard to the Knicks if they can't get Porzingis and the Knicks, who are trying to rebuild, aren't going to give up their best player just so that they can get Leonard.

"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.

The Lakers would be left to fill the rest of their roster with veteran's minimum contracts, a salary-cap exception of about $4.3 million, and a trade exception of about $1.5 million for trading Larry Nance Jr.to the Cavs. 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. Hill and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich have remained close, dating back to Hill's three years in San Antonio from 2008-2011.
