LeBron James' decision Friday morning to decline the $35.6-million option on the final season of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers gives the Lakers an advantage over other National Basketball Association teams in their attempts to sign him as an unrestricted free agent. "But my gut feeling is that Kawhi Leonard won't get traded until the trade deadline during the season, and nothing happens at all this summer".
Wednesday morning it was reported by Adrian Wojnarowski, Ramona Shelburne, and Brian Windhorst that there was pressure building on the Lakers to make a deal to acquire Kawhi, as the trade could affect the decisions of a guy named LeBron James. Once draft picks are signed, they can not be traded for 30 days. Spurs teammates questioned the severity of the injury as Leonard's absence continued after the team had cleared him medically.

The team is already a title contender so it doesn't make sense to trade for Leonard who had just recently told teams not named the Lakers and Clippers that he would not re-sign with them.
The former Finals MVP disagreed with both the diagnosis and treatment of the injury, eventually seeking an alternative opinion from a doctor of his own choosing - Dr Jonathan Glashow, who also moonlights at the Sixers' chief medical officer.
