NBA Trade Rumors: San Antonio Spurs could be active at deadline, trade Kawhi Leonard

The NBA trade deadline is approaching fast which  means that teams all over the NBA are going to be looking at potential deals that they can make to boost their roster. Not everyone is in a trade frenzy though as plenty of teams sit it out and simply watch the circus like the rest of us.

One of those teams typically is the San Antonio Spurs but the team may end up being active at the deadline. They’re usually a quiet team but there are rumblings that they might make a move if they can get substantial return for Kawhi Leonard.

Per Sam Amico from FOX Sports:

The defending Western Conference champions have struggled mightily against the league’s elite — and with age continuing to inhibit the likes of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and especially, Tim Duncan, the Spurs could be looking to make a move. None of the aforementioned, of course, are on the block. But forward Kawhi Leonard could be, provided the returns are fabulous.

It’s not a lock that the Spurs will be active, but if they feel they can’t return to the NBA Finals without making a move, they may make one. Still, it’s a long shot and the return needs to be substantial for Leonard and that just might not happen.
