Raptors now the betting favourites to trade for Kawhi Leonard

San Antonio's string of dominance may be coming to an end, though, especially if Leonard ends up getting traded.

It certainly doesn't hurt the Sixers' chances that head coach Brett Brown has some history with Leonard from his time as an assistant with the Spurs.

The Los Angeles Lakers have found themselves in the middle of a number of rumors this offseason, but perhaps the more intriguing one involves San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard. Those three teams, along with the Los Angeles Clippers to a lesser extent, have been considered the most likely destinations for Leonard ever since it was reported he wanted to be dealt four weeks ago.

Remember when Kawhi Leonard leaked that he wanted to be traded from the Spurs?

Toronto has been linked to Leonard in recent days, with Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post stating the Raptors have "generated buzz" in a potential trade. But, in the latest development, there's been some interesting movement on the betting front, as the Toronto Raptors now have the best odds to start next season with the superstar forward on their roster.

Despite their worsening relationship with Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs are still hoping that they can get valuable assets that could keep them competitive in the Western Conference.

Considering the Sixers were swept out of the playoffs by the Celtics this past year, they could definitely use a player like Leonard to help compete with an even more loaded Boston team next season. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means. The Spurs, who are trying to rebuild their franchise after parting ways with the best two-way player in basketball not named LeBron James, or Sixers faithful, who want to give up as little as possible in order to march to the NBA Finals?
