Spurs 'uninterested' in Lonzo Ball in Kawhi Leonard trade with Lakers

Sports, Kawhi is seeking a trade out of San Antonio to preferably suit up for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Just after noon on Thursday, the betting odds swung drastically in favor of the Lakers, with Los Angeles emerging as a -300 favorite to land James. The reasoning, according to the trio, is that both teams believe that sending Leonard to LA would also clinch a commitment from James who is still mulling his options for free agency now.

The Lakers want a deal done ASAP because adding Kawhi could be what ultimately makes LeBron James decide to leave Cleveland (I don't think it's 100% guaranteed at this point).

It is understood the victim of that matter was her boyfriend, former high school sweetheart Chris Heisser, who suffered an injury. Locklear pleaded not guilty to the charges in April but she was barred from owning or possessing a firearm.

But the Lakers have Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball (who'd probably have to be conveyed to a third team) to forma package.

It's also worth noting that Leonard is one of the few players in the National Basketball Association who can contain James, another reason why James would potentially want to play with Leonard instead of against him.

However, following reports that LeBron James is hesitant to be the first star to go to the Lakers and that Paul George might stay in Oklahoma City, the Lakers may have to trade for Leonard to get the ball rolling.

Conte was known to be disappointed with the business that the club did last summer, leading to a rise in tensions between himself and the club's hierarchy.

Later Wednesday, ESPN reported that the Lakers had reached out again to pursue Leonard for the first time since their initial inquiry, reinforcing the reported urgency. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski writes that the Celtics "have assets" that the Spurs have had their eye on for some time.

LeBron James will officially become a free agent on July 1.

The Nuggets plan to give center Nikola Jokic a max contract this summer, which puts them in a tough spot in regards to the luxury tax, so it would make sense that they would be looking to shed salary. Trading for LeBron sort of takes the Lakers out of the Leonard sweepstakes financially. That's fine, but the Spurs made a decision to acknowledge that it's his big day on Twitter.

Costa Rica so far has none. "The most important thing is just to qualify", said the Barcelona playmaker. The five time champions lost their calm as they failed to extend their lead.

There have been reports that James has been calling other free agents trying to form another super team.
