Leonard wants a trade to Los Angeles, preferably the Lakers over the Clippers, league sources said. He has privately maintained that he no longer wants to play in San Antonio and will eventually alert rival teams considering trades for him that his intention is to sign in Los Angeles when he can become a free agent in 2019, league sources said.
His Uncle is reportedly the one steering the ship, so Pop hopefully had Dennis Robertson at the meeting. Kawhi ain’t making a move without getting approval from him, reportedly.
