I only see Kawhi for Irving in a very unlikely mega-domino type way, such as:

We land the #2/#3 pick this year in the lottery.

We deal Brown, #2 pick, 1st rounder, salary filler for Anthony Davis.

We deal Irving for Kawhi.

Then you'd be in some NBA Live fantasy where we run with:

starters: Rozier/ Hayward/ Kawhi/ Horford/ Davis
bench: Smart/ Tatum/ Morris/ Theis/ Baynes

We'd have two DPOY + MVP candidates, two more All-Stars, plus Rozier + Smart + Tatum.

That would be nice. But Davis I'd assume is untouchable for NOP now, and he probably wants to give it another go with a healthy Cousins and company next season.

It would be an interesting wrinkle if that LAL Pick did somehow convey THIS year.

Yeah I agree. Davis would have to freak out after losing to GSW and demand out, pretty much for this to have any chance. And still they ask for Brown *and* Tatum.

I do think the pick conveying early would get really interesting, though. We don't need another young body, it's a $7M salary that opens up trades... etc etc

Yeah, exactly. Suddenly, you might be able to acquire Kawhi Leonard with just that pick (between 6-7M), Rozier + Morris, OR Smart (S&T) + Lakers Pick (2/3) + Another Future Pick. (Basically, keep BOTH Jaylen + Tatum, and Kyrie)

But I've moved on a long a time ago and am looking forward to #KingsPickWatch  ;D

Like you said, definitely would be interesting if the pick conveyed this year. Ainge would be driving us nuts as we waited to see what he’s do. Also, he’s collect his executive of the millennium award.

The Spurs aren't going to accept any deal that doesn't both the Kings pick and one of Tatum/Brown.
So they want the better player and a pick.....hmmmm....gotta say no. Hit the road Jack

Guys, if you read the original post, I didn't explicitly advocate we do any of these deals NOR did I say, "Okay, Ainge HAS to go after Leonard for sure this summer".

Nope, I just presented IMO the ONLY two "logical" trade ideas Ainge should consider if he wants to discuss a Kawhi trade this off season. By logical, meaning trades that work in the trade machine and would *probably* be fair to both sides (aka, doesn't gut Boston's team while SAS gets back value for "somewhat damaged goods" depending on what other offers Spurs get for him).

If you don't want us to even consider a trade OR feel strongly about Kawhi being a "headcase" or whatever, that's a different debate.
