Let's rewind to this time a year ago. According to ESPN, Leonard will let teams interested in trading for him that he intends to play in Los Angeles, preferably for the Lakers, when he becomes a free agent. Last week, Leonard's camp told reporters that Leonard wants to be traded from the Spurs.

That player is Paul George, and no, the Lakers didn't make a move to tempt his former team, the Indiana Pacers, into dealing the five-time All-Star. With plenty of young assets, the Lakers could have packaged something together to acquire said player and try for an immediate rebuild around said player. Should he not be traded this season, many believe he fully intends to hit Free Agency and sign in LA in 2019. The Clippers will bring in some very exciting talent that will help them win games next season and for future seasons.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich traveled Tuesday to Southern California and met with Kawhi Leonard prior to Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, league sources told ESPN. However, the Spurs are telling teams they are trying all they can to fix things with their star forward though they are doing their due diligence on the trade front. The Lakers have a strong nucleus and trading for PG-13 previous year wouldn't have put them over the top. USA Today's Sam Amick added that the meeting had been scheduled for a few weeks and wasn't a direct response to Leonard's reported trade wish.
