ESPN reported Thursday that the Lakers believed trading for Leonard would give them a strong chance of landing James in free agency. He could just go to San Antonio and help the Spurs make Kawhi happy with a super max deal PLUS getting to play with LeBron James under Gregg Popovich and be thrust into championship contention immediately. But if Leonard is set on going to Los Angeles next year, Ainge probably won't want to part with much, and would likely be unwilling to give up Jaylen Brown, who was one of Boston's most reliable players in just his second National Basketball Association season.
ESPN reports Friday that the Spurs have engaged with "several" teams about Leonard - including the Boston Celtics.
The Spurs have received trade offers from the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers, according to ESPN, but reports in the past have identified the Lakers as the team Leonard prefers to be dealt to.
George also could figure into the mix since the Lakers have enough cap room to sign two superstars in free agency.
Meanwhile, in the world of verified information, Vardon has reported that James will not exercise his $35.6 million option on his contract for 2018-19 and will become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday. Most notably, the Silver and Black are enamored with the bevy of assets the Boston Celtics have at their disposal.
The Celtics have reportedly made another offer for Kawhi Leonard.

However, the Spurs have presented the Lakers with a high asking price that includes much of their young core that includes Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart, and a couple of future first-round picks. Last year's No. 2 overall pick, Lonzo Ball, is not on San Antonio's radar.
"Next summer, if nobody comes and I'm still sitting here like this, then it's a failure", Johnson said.
The Lakers of course aren't the only team that would love to land James.
The biggest factor? Leonard has reportedly expressed his interest in playing for the Lakers.
