Lakers pressured to add Leonard before LeBron decision

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN's Ian Begley, there are several people in the Sixers organization that are confident Kawhi Leonard would strongly consider re-signing there next summer if they traded for him. No team is going to trade promising young players and draft picks for a one-year rental.

Leonard requested a trade out of San Antonio last month and it's been reported that the Spurs are ready to move on from the two-time All-Star.

In order to complete a Kawhi Leonard trade, the Los Angeles Clippers have put together a trade package centered around Tobias Harris and at least one of their promising young players.

Shock Germany win 'shook South Korea upside down'
The results on the afternoon in question saw Mexico lose to Sweden 0-3 and South Korea surprising Germany 2-0 . South Korea's win and Sweden turning over Mexico ended their dreams of retaining their title.

The challenge to woo the Spurs into shipping Leonard to L.A., however, is daunting.

In attempting to force through a trade exit, Leonard is prepared to turn down the chance to sign a $219m supermax contract extension with the Spurs, showing the level of his discontent with the Western Conference giants. In fact, James might not even speak with top team officials before making a decision on his destination for next season.

But if a team like the Lakers is desperate to land Leonard, then it could help the Spurs. Because the Spurs risk losing Leonard for nothing, they do not have to take the best trade proposal, just a good one for Leonard.

As a result, no African team advanced from the first round of the World Cup for the first time since 1982. "It worked against us". In the first half, Yoshinori Muto's drive forced Lukasz Fabianski to send off, before the goalkeeper denied Gotoku Sakai effort.

Saric and Covington are both valuable players for the Sixers, but it makes plenty of sense to include them in trade packages. Sound familiar? This is, to a tee, the same situation Kawhi Leonard is in now.

The Cavaliers can re-sign James, but they don't have the salary-cap flexibility to sign other free agents in order to upgrade their roster. The Lakers have always been considered as the lead candidate to secure LeBron should he opt to leave OH for a second time and signing Leonard would make their pitch even more convincing.

Kawhi Leonard is not opposed to playing for the Clippers, he just wants to play in his hometown. The Sixers likely wouldn't have much of a problem replacing Covington. Oklahoma City's Paul George, another major free agent-get, has already declared himself to be on the open market. Don't forget, the Lakers can pursue other options if they don't land Leonard.

Cavani then had to be helped off by Ronaldo before watching the rest of the game from the dugout with ice on a calf injury. Diego Godin (Uruguay) - The indomitable leader of the only defense at the World Cup to keep three clean sheets.

What also can not be dismissed is the Los Angeles Clippers and their desire to trade for Kawhi Leonard.
