The NBA "coincidences" are quite funny. This is the first domino to fall this summer. All these guys talk to each other. The back channels have been working long before today.

Doesn't Pop have some cardinal rule where he doesn't trade guys to any West teams, including LAL? Even if his trade value is diminished I still highly doubt Deng, Ball and Kuzma gets it done. They'll ask for BOTH Ingram and Kuzma in a package.

But yeah Lebron-George-Leonard Big 3 makes it worth it still  :(

Why do GMs honor these 'wish lists' again?

Pop should trade Kawhi to Sacramento just to be petty

The league is drooling over this new Lakers super team about to be formed. LA vs GS WCF would probably have the highest ratings of all time.

This is sad.  Kawhi used to be my favorite player.

Not so much anymore.

I'm not cool with this "I'm gonna sit out the season and demand a trade" thing.

If you're on a dysfunctional team, OK. 

You have the best coach and the best franchise in the league.  They made you a star.

Because the worst case scenario is losing him for nothing.

If he says he won't resign to team X if he gets traded there, team X would be hesitant in giving proper value for him.

Lost all respect for Kawhi Leonard. Hope he rots and never wins another championship cuz clearly Tim Duncan carried him to his first.

That being said, the Lakers are going to be very dangerous for years to come WHEN they land LeBron James, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard. They'll destroy Golden State and Houston.

Because a team that feels they will be able to resign a player entering free agency will pay more.
