‘Pressure mounting’ on Lakers to trade for Kawhi Leonard

Lakers Rumors: LA's Pitch to Sign Paul George Has Been Revealed

A Lakers Fan Has Put Up 40 (Yes, 40) Billboards to Recruit Paul George

The only problem is that the initial conversations between the two teams did not go well, the network previously reported.

ESPN later reported that the Lakers "re-engaged the Spurs Wednesday in aggressively pursuing" Leonard.

The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to acquire Kawhi Leonard, and they don't want to wait much longer.

A Western Conference source with an interest in the proceedings told the Herald the Spurs did have a brief discussion with the Celts today, but there was no real negotiation. That certainly plays in favor of the Lakers, as Leonard has stated that's where he wants to play.

Thiago Silva admits he was "saddened" by Neymar's outburst at him during Brazil's 2-0 World Cup win over Costa Rica on Friday. They will qualify for the last 16 with a draw against Costa Rica , who have already been eliminated, in their final game.

Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram have been featured most prominently in any suggested trade proposals with the Spurs.

San Antonio would prefer to bring back the two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year and 2014 Finals MVP, with a contract extension worth over $200 million somewhere on the table, but Leonard distanced himself from the team last season while missing most of it with a mysteriously stubborn thigh injury.

The possibility of the Spurs looking at an Aldridge trade to follow a Kawhi deal was first raised on Bill Simmons' podcast this week, with guest Kevin O'Connor.

According to a report from ESPN, James is "hesitant" to be the first superstar player the Lakers acquire this offseason, whether that's via trade or free agency.

The report does not, however, mention Lonzo Ball. Acquired by the team in a trade with the Indiana Pacers, George averaged 21.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 79 games this season for the Thunder. For Kahwi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs, things are clearly past the stage or repairability.

If, somehow, the Celtics can get Leonard in a package centered around that Sacramento pick and a collection of other decent assets, then the Celtics just might make a next level super team.

My favorite part in this soap opera is that Gregg Popovich is doing everything he can to stiff-arm the Lakers.
