Gregg Popovich reportedly met with Kawhi Leonard

Per a report from Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News, it was a "good" meeting. It doesn't seem to be working, because the disgruntled superstar has privately maintained that he no longer wants to play for the San Antonio Spurs and wants to be traded.

Leonard had told confidants that he did not want to sit down with Popovich and has been purposely hard for the Spurs to reach recently.

Leonard was reportedly supposed to meet with Popovich last week to resolve the tension, but it never happened. He believes the team mishandled his quadriceps injury and is still upset with public comments Tony Parker and Popovich made that he felt weren't supportive of him, league sources said. Part of the reason why better offers have seemingly not been made is likely because many around the National Basketball Association believe that Leonard has already chose to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers next summer when his contract ends. Although the ESPN report noted San Antonio's lack of interest in engaging the Magic Johnson-led front office in negotiations, it's hard to believe there would not be at least one phone call made. The team, however, hasn't given guidance on what they would want in any potential trade.

According to a recent report from Adrian Wojnarowski, however, the Spurs are unlikely to move Leonard to the Lakers.

Leonard, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year, has played all seven of his National Basketball Association seasons with the Spurs. However, one thing to consider with Leonard is the fact that he's eligible for a five-year, $219-million super-max contract extension with San Antonio, so there's a lot of money he could be leaving on the table if he does indeed force his way out.
