Reports came out tonight that Gregg Popovich and Kawhi Leonard had a meeting in San Diego earlier today, presumably to discuss his future with the team. Kawhi has reportedly asked for a trade, with his eyes on the Lakers as his ideal destination. Jason Smith and Mike Harmon, however, are not convinced that the Spurs would trade Kawhi to a team, an instant contender, within their conference like the Lakers. Jason explains why the only way Kawhi will be able to land with the Lakers is if he takes matters into his own hands by remaining with the Spurs until the start of the season, then sitting out until the Spurs make the move he desires.
