76ers remain 'atop the list of teams' that could land Kawhi Leonard

So, if the "buzz" is real - and I'm not doubting Bontemps - what would the Raptors have to part with in order to land a superstar like Leonard? He was traded to Minnesota the following offseason for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen.

The team is in talks with San Antonio to acquire the two-time all-star via a trade.

It's probably a longshot, but it is interesting to see that Toronto is being talked about alongside National Basketball Association heavyweights like the Los Angeles Lakers - Leonard's preferred choice - the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.

With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, it makes sense Toronto would seriously consider making a move for Leonard.

According to Chris Sheridan of 'GetMoreSports, ' a potential deal sending the 38-year-old big man to the Sixers has been "very much in play" in recent days. In 2017-18, he posted career-low numbers of 10.1 points in 23.5 minutes per game, eight rebounds, and 3.1 assists, as the starting center on a Spurs team that finished 47-35 and was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the eventual champion Golden State Warriors.

Leonard's group has stated he would only want to re-sign next summer with a team from the Los Angeles area, which continues to dissuade teams from putting together an attractive package with multiple assets for the Spurs. Taylor offered a quick play-by-play account of their exchange: "We offered him the extension, and they've met and come back to us and said they're really appreciative of it, they appreciate that we got to them right away and all that, but they declined it".
