However, if a trade can't be worked out to send Leonard to Los Angeles, the Eastern Conference is a possibility as well.

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.

The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the National Basketball Association teams who expressed strong interest in trading for Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs.

Guards DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have been mentioned as players in a potential deal. They have better odds than the Spurs, better odds than the Lakers, betters odds than the 76ers, better odds than the Celtics, better odds than every other team.

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.

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. The Raptors don't have any developing players that would be considered untouchable.

A new team has entered the mix as a possible trade partner for the San Antonio Spurs if and when they move Kawhi Leonard, and oddsmakers think there is a very good chance Leonard ends up with said team.

With Leonard reportedly seeking a trade from the franchise that helped build him into a two-time All-Star and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, speculation continues to swirl as to where the now 27-year-old Leonard will be playing when the 2018-19 season commences. Despite saying that he will only sign with the Los Angeles Lakers when he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer, Chris Haynes of ESPN revealed that Leonard is now also giving the Sixers a consideration.
