Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard Expects to Sign Contract Extension

San Antonio is reported to want to mend fences with Leonard, who missed the majority of past year with a quad injury, differences in opinion on the rehabilitation of which caused some tension within the organization. Meanwhile, talented players like Kemba Walker, Kevin Love, Hassan Whiteside, and a host of others - including core members of the Toronto Raptors - could be available on the trade market as teams look to reload for next season, or change the course of their franchises in the coming months.

"The Boston Celtics made a trade offer to San Antonio before the February deadline, but the Spurs turned it down - and never made a counter-proposal, league sources said". Leonard has one more season remaining on his current contract and is eligible for a five-year, $219 million super-max extension this offseason.

Enter: the Boston Celtics. San Antonio wasn't willing to discuss deals for Leonard in February.

According to a recent report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Boston Celtics made a trade offer to the San Antonio Spurs in an effort to acquire Kawhi Leonard, at the most recent National Basketball Association trade deadline. He adds that San Antonio could come back to Boston if its renegotiation talks with Leonard do not go well. There's no guarantee Leonard will requalify for the supermax (he would have to make an All-NBA team or win MVP/Defensive Player of the Year) or still accept it next summer when he can opt out of the final year of his deal to become an unrestricted free agent.

"The Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers have interest in Leonard, each with a differing array of young assets to trade for him now and the potential of salary-cap space to sign Leonard outright in 2019", Wojnarowski wrote.
