Raptors are co-favorites to acquire Kawhi Leonard  7 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

You want NBA offseason tea leaves to read? You got 'em.

Notice anything here? (Yeah, I know - the headline gave it away.)

Hmmmm. The Toronto Raptors are co-favorites to have Kawhi Leonard on their roster by next season.

This could mean a few things:

1. Nothing.

2. The talk of Leonard to the Raptors as a possibility sent bettors to their betting establishments and drove up his odds.

3. Oddsmakers know something we don't.

Who knows? What I do know is if the San Antonio Spurs are trying to get the best return for the reportedly disgruntled Leonard, the Raps would be a good choice - they might get back DeMar DeRozan and a young player or two like OG Anunoby or Delon Wright, and maybe picks, too.

Of course, this is the Paul George scenario all over again - do the Raptors pull off a move like that in the hopes they can convince Leonard to stay long-term?

This is all speculation. For now, all you can say is the Raps make an intriguing trading partner with the Spurs … and the odds seem to say the same.
