With the rumours of Leonard wanting to leave The Spurs due to problems with the treatment of his injury

I think we should just for fun discuss if we can come up with an interesting trade for him.

Can we use our trade exception in some kind of creative deal?

Trade exceptions cannot be used in 3 way trades. They can only be used to bring in a player that has one year left on their deal.

Also there's been discussions for this already, but I'll start by saying any Kawhi trade should be considered the same as any AD trade...

Untouchable for now, but Spurs certainly not going to start any negotiations without first starting off with the Lakers pick, (if it conveys) Brown, Rozier, and one of Memphis or Clippers pick.

This has been discussed a ton on here. I doubt it's true, and even if there is some "tension", the Spurs are doing well without him and would understandably be legitimate contenders once he returned (along with Gay).

BUT... I'll play along.

Trade would have to be Morris, Brown, Rozier + Yabusele, then Lakers/Kings Pick + 2019 First Rounder, all for Kawhi Leonard.

Matching salaries is a bit difficult,
and so you'd have to deal those 4 players (or Brown + Tatum + scraps, but Tatum should be untouchable IMHO unless it's for Greek Freak or Durant lol).

I would do that trade 10 times out of 10...

See what Detroit would be interested in doing a S&T with picks or 3 way trade, and Ainge can re-sign any of our Bird Rights to match salaries to bring back Bradley.

Kyrie/Larkin/FA
AB/Smart
Leonard/Tatum
Tatum/Theis/FA
Horford/FA

My oh my, that would be an absolute dream of a lineup.

I think Spurs need som big man presence so I would offer:

Morris
Smart
Baynes
Yabusele
Semi

And The Lakers-pick and The Clippers-pick

The Spurs would only do this if Kawdi is forcing his way out, but if he does that then we could be and interesting trade-partner.

After that I believe we should sign Nerlens Noel when he is bought out or we could take on Asik if that is necessary in a trade for AD.

You also left out Hayward, so I do not see any need of bringing Bradley back.

If he does get traded, as long as it's not to the Lakers, Warriors or Cavaliers, I'll be happy.

I don't think he gets traded BUT it's certainly getting interesting. I think there is something going on between Kawhi and the Spurs behind the scenes. Doesn't mean it can't get resolved but it's also hard to overlook that Kawhi doesn't want to come back even though the Spurs are a Top-4 team in the West without him (just imagine how they'd be WITH him + Gay), and he's been medically cleared for a while according to reports.  ???

Not a promising sign from Leonard that he has a problem with one of the greatest organizations in pro sports but he's a top 10 player
