Kawhi Leonard and Gregg Popovich‘s long-awaited tête-à-tête is expected to take place prior to this month’s NBA Draft.

San Antonio is said to be uninterested in any sort of trade chatter for Leonard at the moment.

The Spurs are reportedly eyeing an athletic wing in the upcoming Draft.

Per The Express-News:

The Spurs possess their first top 19 pick since selecting Tim Duncan first overall in 1997. At No. 18, San Antonio is projected by most places to take a wing.

But if San Antonio does not offer Kawhi Leonard the supermax contract extension this summer, its strategy should change. For instance, the Spurs might decide to trade the small forward for more assets — like higher draft picks.

Leonard is eligible to receive a five-year, $219 million extension from the Spurs this summer. The small forward played just nine games this season, battling quadricep tendinopathy.
