Rumors also suggest that the Lakers are pursuing a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

For all the news that has come out about Kawhi demanding to leave the Spurs, super max money plus LeBron James is something that no other team would be able to offer.

As July 1 approaches with haste, much of the National Basketball Association world is quiet but the headliner of the pre-free agency process continues to be the future of Kawhi Leonard.

Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe took things a step further, calling a Leonard trade between the Celtics and Spurs "quite unlikely".

"One team source says preliminary discussions with San Antonio revealed the Spurs have strong interest in a package involving burgeoning forwards Dario Saric and Robert Covington as well as a future first-round pick".

Sunday's opening of free agency only marks when teams and players can reach handshake agreements.

The battle may not be entirely over, Kennedy noted, as the law could face legal challenges on other grounds. "Now everybody is going to be collecting sales tax whether you order from Amazon or anywhere online".

"LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does", Altman said.

Is the aforementioned package enough to attract the Spurs?

Parker also praised San Antonio's medical staff, noting he "could have gone anywhere" to receive treatment, but "they know my body better than anybody.I feel like we have the best medical team in the world".

However, they are unwilling to pay the high price of Leonard. Leonard is technically still a member of the roster, so it somewhat makes sense, but the situation remains awkward. Unless Boston parts with Kyrie Irving or Gordon Hayward, though, it would absolutely need to include Jaylen Brown as part of a trade. The Celtics even have a a horde of future draft picks they could move.
