Our Wildest Kawhi Leonard Trade Proposals

Amid reports of distance between Leonard’s camp and the Spurs, we imagined what it would take to move the All-Star forward.

Spurs receive: Corey Brewer, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, two first-round picks
Lakers receive: Kawhi Leonard

Jonathan Tjarks: It’s impossible to come up with a good trade for Leonard. San Antonio would be tearing down a foundation it has spent 20 years building. This trade would at least allow the Spurs to start over with two extremely talented under-23 forwards as well as a solid rookie guard in Josh Hart and two future first-round picks. Kuzma looks like a 10-year NBA starter, but whether this deal would make any sense depends on how you view Ingram’s potential after two up-and-down seasons in the NBA. Put some meat on his bones and get him in the gym with the Spurs shooting coach, and he could become a cornerstone player.
