Report: Celtics interested in trading for Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard appears to be on his way to forcing himself out of San Antonio, and there will be no shortage of teams interested in the star forward. The Boston Celtics will reportedly be among them.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics will be interested in discussing a possible trade with the Spurs should they make Leonard available.

Considering Wojnarowski previously reported that the Celtics made an offer for Leonard prior to the February trade deadline, that is not a surprise. San Antonio turned that offer down and did not make a counter-offer, so Celtics president Danny Ainge may have been trying to take advantage of the tension between Leonard and the Spurs.

Ainge has never been shy about pulling the trigger on any deal that gives him a chance to win a title, and adding Leonard to arguably the best young team in the league would be an intriguing move. For what it’s worth, Leonard reportedly has his sights set on joining one team in particular.
