With plenty of young assets, the Lakers could have packaged something together to acquire said player and try for an immediate rebuild around said player.

With Kawhi Leonard wanting to play in LA, the Clippers remain a strong landing spot for the disgruntled small forward.

Now, PG-13 is an unrestricted free agent with a massive personal decision on the horizon.

Even if the Boston Celtics or another National Basketball Association team ends up trading for Kawhi Leonard, the San Antonio Spurs superstar doesn't intend to stay with his new team longer than one season.

She came into this match after a relatively comfortable opening few games in the tournament, in which she did not lose a single set.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, Leonard is still very upset over Parker's comments over how he chose to handle his injury and feels that Popovich and the rest of his Spurs teammates weren't supportive enough of him. So there are a lot of moving pieces in the Lakers' dream summer.

Gay is turning down a salary of $8.8 million in order to hit free agency.

A lot of people and fans are gearing up for a complete overhaul of their roster with George, Leonard and potentially LeBron James all joining the Lakers.

The report comes amid news that Leonard met with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich in southern California, which was planned for weeks and meant to discuss a number of issues that have led to Leonard's desire to leave San Antonio.

It's the ideal storm for the Lakers, but the forecast remains hazy.

But there is also the hope that all three could end up in Los Angeles. Then that trio topples the Golden State Warriors dynasty and wins a multitude of titles.

The Spurs do not have to facilitate a trade to the Lakers simply because that's Leonard's preference. They've made smart move after smart move over the past year or so; we will see if they continue them and hold off the temptation to drain their roster and assets.
