  • Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard Expects to Sign Contract Extension

LeBron James, Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, Chris Paul, and Paul George are among an eye-popping list of free agents available this summer.

Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs stands on the court during Game One of the NBA Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors at ORACLE Arena on May 14, 2017.

This summer, Leonard would be eligible to sign a monster five-year $219m super-max contract extension to stay with the Spurs - but the feeling on all sides is that there is work to be done in order to rescue the relationship.

San Antonio is reported to want to mend fences with Leonard, who missed the majority of a year ago with a quad injury, differences in opinion on the rehabilitation of which caused some tension within the organization.

Enter: the Boston Celtics.

The key word in the Trump-Kim show
Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, then described for the committee what would happen in South Korea. He instead suggested Trump's comment about suspending military exercises was "part of the negotiating".

He continued: "The Boston Celtics made a trade offer to San Antonio before the February deadline, but the Spurs turned it down -- and never made a counterproposal, league sources said".

San Antonio wasn't willing to even discuss trades for Leonard in February and they remain resistant to trades so far this spring.

Should things not progress according to the Spurs' expectations, they could soon involve themselves in trade talks with those interested, hoping to salvage something in exchange for their estranged star.

The Celtics are one of the most asset-rich teams in the National Basketball Association, boasting a roster stacked with veteran stars, promising young talent, and a boatload of draft picks, including a potential eight first-rounders over the next three drafts.
