Kawhi, Pop had reportedly met Tuesday

McDonough Suns Kawhi Gregg Popovich meets with Kawhi Leonard in California

This sounds great in theory, and could very well happen, but I hope the management team opts to take last year's approach to the Kawhi Leonard situation, especially when weighing that the San Antonio Spurs likely won't deal him to a Western Conference team if at all, and that he, like George a year ago, is informing teams he plans to sign with the Lakers in 2019.

According to ESPN, Los Angeles has acquired the No. 39 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft from the 76ers for a 2019 second-round pick.

Popovich and Leonard reportedly met in person Tuesday night to discuss the superstar's future.

Leonard has one year left on his contract before he can become a free agent. Making it clear that he'll leave San Antonio next summer could force the Spurs to trade Leonard out of fear that they will soon lose him for nothing. He finished second in MVP voting in 2016, and third in 2017. With plenty of young assets, the Lakers could have packaged something together to acquire said player and try for an immediate rebuild around said player.

Well, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne added to the meeting reports, noting how Leonard remains "irate" with Popovich and Tony Parker over unsupportive in-season comments, as well as the belief that the quadriceps injury was mishandled. Aldridge even signed a three-year contract extension with the team in October and went on to have his best season with San Antonio. Brown is one of the most respected coaches in the National Basketball Association among the players, and veterans that came to Philadelphia raved about both his coaching and the atmosphere he has built in the locker room.

Leonard attended the private memorial service for Popovichs late wife, Erin, in San Antonio after the season ended, and he interacted with team officials.

Perhaps the Spurs will get an offer that they simply can't refuse, but they don't seem eager to give him away simply because he wants to play elsewhere.
