Celtics Made Trade Offer To Spurs For Kawhi Leonard At Deadline

The NBA's off-season is shaping up to be a landscape-altering summer that could see plenty of All-NBA talent switching teams via trades or free agency. The Spurs never made a counterproposal to the Celtics.

The duo will reportedly have a meeting about their complicated relationship, and whether or not it's repairable, before the Spurs offer Leonard, who was injured for much of a year ago, a super-max contract extension. His relationship with the Spurs this season had its ups and downs, stemming from a quad injury that kept him out all but nine games last season.

Enter: the Boston Celtics.

Perhaps this doesn't end up being the case and Popovich sticks around in San Antonio until the end of time - as mentioned earlier, it wouldn't be the first time there would be retirement chatter surrounding Popovich that didn't come to fruition.

Wojnarowski noted that the Spurs "remain resistant to trades" when it comes to Leonard, but he added that the Lakers and 76ers have become interested as well.

In a revelatory breakdown of the situation, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski disclosed that the Boston Celtics made a run at Leonard at this year's trade deadline-but, of course, San Antonio turned down the offer.

Should the reconciliation talks go well, the Spurs will likely keep Leonard and continue to reject trade offers.

Since that time, young players like Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have become more proven National Basketball Association players while still on rookie contracts.

When healthy, Leonard is a no-doubt top-five player, and it's no wonder opportunistic teams like the Celtics are looking to swoop in and nab the former Finals MVP.

Wojnarowski also notes that Popovich's future is "an interesting subplot" in the on-going Kawhi Leonard saga.
