It doesn’t seem like the Celtics will be landing Spurs star Kawhi Leonard and that’s because they just aren’t willing to give up much for what could be just be a year.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics’ top-five players are off limits in any deal for Leonard and also any deal the Celtics offer would be “pick heavy.” This says Danny Ainge is not willing to part ways with Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown or Al Horford.
Leonard apparently wants to go to the Lakers, but he’s also a free agent after this coming season so no deal is guaranteed.
