76ers remain 'atop the list of teams' that could land Kawhi Leonard

76ers remain 'atop the list of teams' that could land Kawhi Leonard

San Antonio's string of dominance may be coming to an end, though, especially if Leonard ends up getting traded.

The truth of the matter is, the Spurs are being extremely stubborn when it comes to dealing their superstar.

Well, Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri will have to start with one of either DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry, and then add two or three other pieces.

The Spurs are listed as the second team Leonard will likely play for next season followed by the Lakers and Clippers.

The shift in the odds could in part be linked to a recent report by The Washington Post's Tim Bontemps, which noted that the Raptors have "generated buzz" as a potential landing spot for Leonard.

The Spurs have reached the playoffs in 21 straight seasons, but they were the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference last season after going just 47-35.

According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, it is believed that the Sixers would have a hard time getting Buford to leave San Antonio for Philly.

The recruitment of Kawhi Leonard, who is still on the Spurs, has been a long, odd road.

It may not be ideal for the Spurs, but it's one that would get the deal done. It hasn't yet been reported that Toronto has contacted San Antonio. The team reportedly isn't looking to rebuild after making the playoffs without their best player for nearly an entire season. The 76ers might not be able to get a deal done until they include former No.1 overall pick Markelle Fultz in a trade package. The Spurs, who are trying to rebuild their franchise after parting ways with the best two-way player in basketball not named LeBron James, or Sixers faithful, who want to give up as little as possible in order to march to the NBA Finals?
