The Spurs have received trade offers from the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Clippers, according to ESPN, but reports in the past have identified the Lakers as the team Leonard prefers to be dealt to.

The San Antonio Spurs are now "ready" to trade Kawhi Leonard, according to a new piece of intel from the New York Times' Marc Stein.

The Nuggets, who will be deep into the luxury tax after re-signing restricted free agent center Nikola Jokic next month, have about $34 million in expiring contracts for Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur and Wilson Chandler to send out in possible deals. It seems, however, that the Lakers are willing to part with more than the Celtics.at least for now.

Sam Amick of USA Today reported hearing "rumblings" Thursday of a "Godfather Lakers offer" to the Spurs. ESPN reports that San Antonio is "most intrigued" with Boston's assets.

It also provides for the allocation of $25 billion on securing the border with Mexico , including the construction of the wall. But community groups say it is not enough, demanding Trump's administration stop caging and prosecuting immigrants.

Both 21-year-old Jaylen Brown and 20-year-old Jayson Tatum are "not available" in a potential trade with the Spurs for Leonard, the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett reported Friday morning.

Durant also has an opt-out clause he is expected to exercise, but he would shock the league if he did anything other than sign a lucrative contract to return to Golden State.

The timetable has been set for the Los Angeles Lakers to land a big-time superstar, and it was done by the man running the show, Magic Johnson.

Regardless of whether that happened, it is hard to imagine Durant would leave a team on which he has won consecutive championships and consecutive NBA Finals MVP awards.

Soon it was 2-0 when Moreno brought down Berg on 62 minutes and Granqvist smashed the penalty into Ochoa's top left hand corner. Even after two wins in the group stage, Mexico is still not guaranteed a spot in the round of 16 just yet.

With that being said, here are the top five potential free agent targets for the Los Angeles Lakers this summer.

Following the conclusion of the NBA Draft last week, Cleveland general manager Koby Altman said the Cavs have had "good dialogue" with James' management team.

On the flip side, the Celtics are rumored to be dipping their toe into the water on trade talks for Leonard. You know what? As far as I'm concerned, LeBron James is a big time player, but the way I look at it, I should be perceived as the best in the world.

James has been on vacation this week in the Caribbean.
