Odds on Which NBA Team Kawhi Leonard Will Be on for the 2018-19 Season

Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs bows his head during the playing of the National Anthem before the start of his game against the Denver Nuggets at AT&T Center on January 13, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.

The San Antonio Spurs have been the NBA’s most stable franchise for the better part of two decades, but the ever-steady club’s icy relationship with its best player, Kawhi Leonard, was the focal point of a disappointing 2017-18 campaign.

Outside of the Spurs, the 76ers, Clippers and Lakers are the favorites to acquire Leonard.

San Antonio’s season came to an end on April 24 when the reigning champion Golden State Warriors eliminated them from the playoffs, handily winning the first-round series 4-1. Leonard, who was sidelined for every postseason contest and all but nine regular-season games due to a lingering quadriceps issue, reportedly became “disconnected” with the Spurs, and his future with the team is in doubt for the first time in his young career.

Bovada has released odds on which team the San Diego State product will be on for the first game of the 2018-19 season, with the Spurs listed as the -170 front-runners. The Philadelphia 76ers (+400), Los Angeles Clippers (+700), Los Angeles Lakers (+900), Boston Celtics (+1100), Cleveland Cavaliers (+1200), New York Knicks (+1400), Charlotte Hornets (+1500) and Milwaukee Bucks (+1500) are also available to wager on.

Can the Spurs repair their fractured relationship with Leonard?

Since Leonard will be in a contract year next season, the Spurs are at a crossroads. Even if San Antonio is able to mend its prickly relationship with Leonard, there’s no guarantee the team will offer him the five-year, $219-million “supermax” contract he’s eligible for. Considering Leonard, a two-time all-star and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, already has an NBA Finals MVP under his belt, the return in a potential trade would be extremely high for the 26-year-old.

ESPN’s Michael C. Wright reported that an offseason meeting with Leonard remains the Spurs’ top priority, with the goal directly pertaining to both sides being able to work out their differences and move on. It’s going to be a busy summer for Spurs general manager R.C. Buford, as several big-name players like Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Danny Green are facing retirement or free agency.

For the first time in seemingly forever, the outlook for the Spurs appears to be murky right now. Do you think Leonard will be back in San Antonio next season, or will the Spurs opt to deal him elsewhere? Have your say in the comment section.
