New, comments

Apparently the Spurs front office just noped L.A.’s request.

If you were watching the NBA Draft last night, you know there was early chatter that Kawhi Leonard might be a trade option for the Spurs to acquire younger talent. Anticipation that Leonard is leaning toward Los Angeles, and specifically the Lakers, limited the discussion which all but dissolved quickly as it became apparent the 2014 Finals MVP was not to be dealt.

Meanwhile, across town, the Lakers put a call in and pretty much got a dial tone.

According to her article and reporting by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the conversation did not even reach the point of discussing players. There has since been no further effort to make contact.
