Leonard, 27, has one year remaining on his contract, meaning any team willing to trade for him would likely need to be assured ahead of time that he'd sign a contract extension. And they certainly have plenty of picks to package, from next year's Sacramento Kings pick (unless it's the No. 1 overall pick) to three other potential first rounders in 2019.
Leonard, who played in just nine games last season while battling a quad injury, has requested a trade and made it clear he does not want to stay in San Antonio, despite Spurs coach Gregg Popovich's efforts to smooth over differences.
