Sixers unwilling to spend too much for Kawhi Leonard

Sixers unwilling to spend too much for Kawhi Leonard

All three of these stellar small forwards had the chance to come team up with the East's up-and-comers, help bear the fruit of the Process, and have their name live in Philadelphia 76ers sports history. Certainly, if you sign them as a free agent, you get them for free.

Kawhi Leonard's hive-mind of his uncle's friends decided that the two-way superstar would be playing in Los Angeles next season, and agreed that Kawhi wouldn't set foot on the court for another team.

Antonio Conte begins Chelsea preseason with double session
Ross Barkley, Pedro, Cesc Fabregas, Tiemoue Bakayoko Marcos Alonso and David Luiz were among the big names to have returned. And they have also found issues with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, who is reluctant to let Sarri go.

However, San Antonio may have just been thrown a curveball from Minnesota Timberwolves star Butler. Meanwhile, other teams who can put together a competitive trade package, like the Boston Celtics, are rumoured to be happier holding onto their assets for now.

Both the Timberwolves and San Antonio would face the risk of losing both stars in free agency next year but the Spurs may feel more confident about being able to keep hold of Butler. With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, perhaps Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri is willing to swing for the fences and move DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry in such a deal. He was clearly a favorite for the team and years later, he could be in the mix yet again.

An appeal court will now hear the case on July 29, according to Mazboh's lawyer, Emad Kamal. Mazboh later posted another video apologizing to "respectable Egyptians" for her remarks.

Could Kawhi Leonard become a part of "the process?"

Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post noted on Monday that, "The Philadelphia 76ers have consistently remained atop the list of teams expected to land Leonard". It all depends on who matches San Antonio's asking price or if they settle with a less-than-desired package from another team, especially to get a deal done before anyone takes the court.
