However, Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post indicated on Thursday afternoon that Lakers guard and former No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball might not be an enticing part of a trade package on the Spurs side.
The Spurs are actively discussing potential trades with multiple teams, though Leonard has indicated a desire to play in Los Angeles.
San Antonio has had hopes of repairing its tattered relationship with Leonard and ultimately getting to a comfort level with offering the $219 million super maximum contract extension. Leonard's suboptimal contract extension discussions with Jordan Brand in March signaled the importance of playing in a larger market, and the Spurs star would be open to playing in Boston and NY, the source said.

If they Lakers trade for Leonard, it could set the franchise back and disrupt their winning timeline. With many teams proposing their offers to San Antonio for the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, the Brooklyn Nets should not be one of those teams.
The pressure, according to ESPN, revolves around Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James. If he does, any team in the league, including the Cavs, will be able to sign him when free agency opens on Sunday. The Nets should not take the chance of possibly trading away their bright future for Leonard. Brooklyn will be serious contenders next summer due to their two max contract spots. But there have been a few National Basketball Association rumors and predictions hinting at possible new destinations for the New Orleans Pelicans big man, and even with his recent ACL injury in mind, a number of teams appear to be interested in acquiring his services. Leonard is technically still a member of the roster, so it somewhat makes sense, but the situation remains awkward.
