San Antonio Spurs former Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard had reportedly met with coach Gregg Popovich, raising hopes that the problems between them and the team is nearing solution.

ESPN reported that the Sixers traded the 39 pick Wednesday night to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for a 2019 second-rounder via the Chicago Bulls and cash.

The moment which settled the match came on three minutes, when an error from Davinson Sanchez allowed Yuga Osako in on goal . Pekerman also subbed out experienced midfielder Juan Cuadrado earlier than anticipated in response to Sanchez's red card.

Free agency begins on July 1, so keep checking back to see where the top players have signed. If Leonard wants to be a star, and get more exposure than he did in San Antonio, Philadelphia offers him that chance as well. Popovich even suggested that Leonard might be better than LeBron James a year ago. With plenty of young assets, the Lakers could have packaged something together to acquire said player and try for an immediate rebuild around said player.

With only three-four potential openings on their roster going into 2018, free agency notwithstanding, the 76ers simply can't keep five, let alone six players moving forward, and while they could obviously draft a foreign player and stash them overseas, like they did past year when they traded up to select Latvian center Anzejs Pasecniks 25th overall, those prospects seldom turn into starters, let alone solid role players.

There have already been multiple rumours emerging from within the organisation that they will not do any business regarding Leonard with Western Conference teams, and it's now becoming clear exactly how Popovich and R.C. Buford are looking to move forward with the less-than-ideal task of sorting out Leonard's future. Aldridge even signed a three-year contract extension with the team in October and went on to have his best season with San Antonio.

The situation with Leonard isn't exactly the same, considering the bad blood that seems to have developed between Leonard and some members of the organization.
