Meanwhile, talented players like Kemba Walker, Kevin Love, Hassan Whiteside, and a host of others - including core members of the Toronto Raptors - could be available on the trade market as teams look to reload for next season, or change the course of their franchises in the coming months.

While there has been plenty of speculation about Kawhi Leonard's future with the San Antonio Spurs, the relationship between the player and head coach Gregg Popovich might not be past the point of no return.

San Antonio is reported to want to mend fences with Leonard, who missed the majority of previous year with a quad injury, differences in opinion on the rehabilitation of which caused some tension within the organization.

The duo will reportedly have a meeting about their complicated relationship, and whether or not it's repairable, before the Spurs offer Leonard, who was injured for much of past year, a super-max contract extension.

Enter: the Boston Celtics.

Brands to darken letters to encourage donating blood
In her message to commemorate World Blood Donor Day which falls on 14 June 2018, under the theme: Be there for someone else. Safe blood donations play a vital role in providing effective and prompt care for patients in need.

According to Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News, the two could be approaching a "healing stage" and are trying to schedule a meeting "to discuss any issues or concerns Leonard may have".

Most believe that the Spurs will offer Leonard that type of money, but Wojnarowski thinks that given the way San Antonio does things, they might want to see him on the court first. So far this spring, the Spurs remain resistant to trades.

Wojnarowski did not note what the Celtics included in the deal, but well before their run to the Eastern Conference Finals, what if they were willing to move one of Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown, draft picks and other pieces to go with them?

The tension surrounding the situation intensified when, after opting to not be with the team for rehab reasons, Leonard was spotted three weeks later attending a Dodgers game in Los Angeles.
