While the Lakers are reportedly open to including Brandon Ingram in a trade package for Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles has not offered the 2016 No. 2 overall pick yet, according to the Los Angeles Times. Leonard prefers playing with the Los Angeles Lakers but does not mind playing for the Los Angeles Clippers. However, it appears as though the Lakers and San Antonio Spurs might be out to spite us. After they did not make the trade, George was traded to the Thunder and one year later re-signed with them.
While reports have been circulating about Kawhi Leonard not wanting to step back into a Spurs locker room again, the organization still wished him a happy birthday. Nevertheless, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said Thursday that James "reached out to Kevin Durant via text, from what I'm told, about coming to Los Angeles". Given all of that information, it seems as though that a trade between the Lakers and the Spurs would fall in the range of those two reports.

Apple sought the removal of the Galaxy devices, and the two behemoths have been duking it out in court ever since 2011. Samsung had appealed for a new trial, claiming it was more than the $399m it had managed to barter down to.
Durant also has an opt-out clause he is expected to exercise, but he would shock the league if he did anything other than sign a lucrative contract to return to Golden State. Kawhi's 2019 free agency and his supposed desires of wanting to play for the Lakers has given at least the Celtics concern. The 2014 NBA Finals MVP has demanded to be traded.
His interest in the Lakers is strong, according to a report on cleveland.com, which was the first news organization to report he would opt out of his deal and test free agency.
Leonard's camp has made it known that he wants to be in Los Angeles, but he could be persuaded to stay in a larger market like Boston or Philadelphia.
The Leonard saga stretched throughout the 2017-18 season, in which the star swingman only played nine games due to a quadriceps injury.
