In any case, it seems like a good idea to proceed with caution as there have been plenty of rumors circling Leonard this offseason with not a whole lot of results thus far.

Leonard's relationship with the Spurs has grown sour over the past year due in large part to communication issues between the team and its superstar over injury management. ESPN's Brian Windhorst then said in an appearance on SN 590 The Fan Wednesday that National Basketball Association executives believe the Raptors are one of the best positioned teams to make a play for Leonard. "The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard", Tim Bontemps writes.

The Spurs have reached the playoffs in 21 straight seasons, but they were the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference last season after going just 47-35. The Raptors don't have any developing players that would be considered untouchable.

Acquiring one of Toronto's guards would keep San Antonio competitive in 2018-2019.

Now the betting site has Toronto at even money while San Antonio has moved to +400 in regards to retaining Leonard.

So with the league seemingly at an impasse as this saga drags on, here's a proposition for a four-team, blockbuster deal involving the Philadelphia 76ers.

With tensions between Leonard and the Spurs reaching irreconcilable levels, the belief is that a trade back home to Los Angeles would be a welcome change for the former Finals MVP.

Leonard's group has stated he would only want to re-sign next summer with a team from the Los Angeles area, which continues to dissuade teams from putting together an attractive package with multiple assets for the Spurs. All in all, it's not a bad deal and not a robbery by any means.
