San Antonio Spurs: Kawhi Leonard still ‘irate’ with Tony Parker’s comments

The second coming of Wilt Can Le Bron find acceptance in Los Angeles

The second coming of Wilt Can Le Bron find acceptance in Los Angeles

This much we know: Kawhi Leonard's relationship with San Antonio soured this year, and he has made it clear he wants out of the Spurs organization.

The report comes amid news that Leonard met with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich in southern California, which was planned for weeks and meant to discuss a number of issues that have led to Leonard's desire to leave San Antonio.

Leonard reportedly does not want to play in San Antonio any longer and will eventually alert teams considering trades for him that his intentions are to sign in Los Angeles - his birthplace - when he becomes a free agent in 2019.

Parker's comments were a comparison between quadriceps injuries, calling the one he suffered in the 2017 playoffs "100 times worse" than Leonard's.

However, Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of Chelsea's Willian and would apparently be open to taking the Brazilian plus cash for Martial.

ESPN reported that Leonard remains upset with the Spurs' handling of his quad injury, which led to him getting a second opinion and taking the matter into his own hands, outside of the Spurs' counsel. As of now, Leonard would prefer a trade to the Lakers over the Clippers. Should he not be traded this season, many believe he fully intends to hit Free Agency and sign in LA in 2019.

So as we inch closer to what's sure to be a insane offseason with plenty of trades and big names trading places, I would hope the Los Angeles Lakers take a page from last year's playbook and do not forgo assets for an expiring contract when they can simply add him to the mix and build upon a franchise trending in the right direction.

They can also trade both picks for Superstar Kawhi Leonard and hope he isn't just a one-year rental. ESPN reports Popovich has tried to set up a meeting for weeks.

With the draft on Thursday night, Leonard talk will only heat up.
