Another team that has been suggested as a possible landing spot for Leonard is the Boston Celtics. However, Los Angeles would appear to be the more logical choice, just considering how much Boston already has invested in top players.

It’s been a long, strange trip for Leonard and the Spurs this season. He’s missed all but nine games dealing with an injury to his quad that has been a source of contention between himself and head coach Gregg Popovich. Now it’s been reported he won’t be available at all during the playoffs, regardless of how deep San Antonio might go.
