The price for Leonard would have to include some combination of Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and more.
The Spurs have wanted to find a way to fix the franchise's relationship with Leonard, but an overwhelming Lakers offer could convince San Antonio to part with its franchise star, league sources said. A recent report by the Orange County Register's Mark Heisler included this quote from a source identified as a general manager for an Eastern Conference team: "LeBron is doing what he does: calling players on other teams he wants to play with". The Sixers could hypothetically offer a package of Markelle Fultz, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, and the 2021 first-round pick via the Miami Heat that they acquired in last week's draft.

Mohamed Salah is not considering retiring from worldwide football, according to Egyptian FA board member Essam Abdel Fattah. Reports that Salah could refuse to play in Egypt's final group game was rubbished by the player's agent and Salah himself.
ESPN reports that the Lakers are weighing how much to give up for Leonard, who, it has been reported, wants to be traded to the Lakers and eventually plans to sign with them when he becomes a free agent in 2019. However, there appear to be some hints that he may have already made a decision, based on his reported method of delivering that news. That means that we can finally turn all of our attention to free agency, which is slated to begin July 1. It's believed his preference is on joining the Lakers, even after a meeting with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne, "pressure is mounting" on Magic Johnson and his front-office staff with the Lakers to execute a deal with the Spurs before Friday's deadline for James to exercise the contract clause that would enable him to hit the open market. That could allow them to sign James and George while also going out and acquiring a player like Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs.
But they do have the assets to make a better trade offer than the Lakers.
