Leonard's relationship has deteriorated with the Spurs' organization after ESPN reported that the former NBA Finals MVP believes the organization mishandled his quadriceps injury, as well as comments made by Popovich and teammate Tony Parker regarding his injury as Leonard sat out most of the season.
The Sixers lost out on the LeBron James sweepstakes before they were even given a chance, and Paul George shocked the world when the clock struck midnight on July 1 by re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Kawhi Leonard's future destination remains the biggest enigma in the National Basketball Association world, but according to former NFL-wideout-turned-analyst Cris Carter, not much has changed coming from his side. OddsShark named the Toronto Raptors on Thursday as even-money favorites to land Leonard.
The recruitment of Kawhi Leonard, who is still on the Spurs, has been a long, odd road. If so, where's he headed-the Lakers, Clippers, or Sixers? In fact, Toronto is a massive favorite to be future home for the 27-year-old.
Another team that has been mentioned as a possible landing spot is the Philadelphia 76ers.
It would seem a steep price to move one of the two stars who helped the Raptors earn the top seed in the Eastern Conference, but so far, no other team seems willing to part with anything close to the hypothetical deal the Raptors are offering. When healthy, he is arguably the best two-way player in the game. Although, the Sixers could still use another veteran presence and a guy like Gasol would be a ideal fit off the bench to come in a spot for Joel Embiid at center or in his usual power forward role.
