Oddsmakers believe Raptors are favorites to land Kawhi Leonard

Oddsmakers believe Raptors are favorites to land Kawhi Leonard

The Spurs keep trying to raise the ante for Leonard, saying that another team is offering more, according to sources.

Toronto has been linked to Leonard in recent days, with Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post stating the Raptors have "generated buzz" in a potential trade.

One of the suitors appears to be the Toronto Raptors, who are clearly interested in changing the mix after seeing their season end the past two years with series sweeps at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston and Philadelphia are the favorites to make the Finals, though adding Leonard could make the Raptors more competitive.

It may not be ideal for the Spurs, but it's one that would get the deal done.

DeRozan will be 29 in August, but is coming off another All-Star season.

Leonard's group has stated he would only want to re-sign next summer with a team from the Los Angeles area, which continues to dissuade teams from putting together an attractive package with multiple assets for the Spurs. If DeRozan exercises his player option in 2020, he'll make more than $83 million over the next three seasons.

There doesn't seem to be a flawless offer out there for the Spurs, at least not at the moment.

Now the betting site has Toronto at even money while San Antonio has moved to +400 in regards to retaining Leonard. The Lakers don't seem willing to trade Brandon Ingram, and the Celtics reportedly don't want to trade any of their budding stars.

So with the league seemingly at an impasse as this saga drags on, here's a proposition for a four-team, blockbuster deal involving the Philadelphia 76ers. But this could be good news for Philly fans, as landing a player of Leonard's abilities might give the Sixers a leg up on the now wide open Eastern Conference.
