76ers reportedly believe they could sign Kawhi Leonard long-term

Will The Sixers Realistically Attract Any Prime Free Agents?

Will The Sixers Realistically Attract Any Prime Free Agents?

Leonard is eligible to sign a five-year, $219 million super max contract with the Spurs this summer.

The 76ers will have to part with multiple assets if they want to acquire disgruntled Spurs star Kawhi Leonard. First, because the Lakers have a timeline they would like to meet, it really plays into San Antonio's hands, much better than you would expect given the fact that Leonard sort of killed their leverage. Leonard wants a trade to the Lakers now, and he has expressed his desire to sign with them in free agency in 2019.

If they add Kawhi Leonard and another free agent this team has the capability of knocking off the Golden State Warriors and ultimately be the favorite in the West. LeBron isn't slowing down yet and this isn't his last decision.

The Boston Celtics have reportedly held trade discussions with San Antonio.

"I would think the Sixers have the best package to offer, because they have numerous draft picks and young players", said Jon Johnson, KYW's Sixers' beat man and one of the foremost local authorities on the Sixers. Now, it's a mystery as to who will be joining James. If he returns and excels and helps the Warriors win a championship, he'll return to the free agent market in line for a big deal.

Houston may not be able to afford James, who has a leaning to Los Angeles, where he owns a couple of homes.

Simmons is fresh off victor rookie of the year, whilst Embiid made his first All Star appearance in 2017, and adding James into that mix along with some of the other shooters on the roster would certainly make the Sixers an immediate contender.

In May, The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor quoted multiple National Basketball Association executives as saying San Antonio would not settle for anything less than a "grand-slam" offer for Leonard.

We don't know where Kawhi Leonard will end up playing next season.

Leonard, who only played nine games this past season due to a right quadriceps injury, has reportedly said his relationship with the Spurs can not be repaired.
