Kawhi Leonard is reportedly close to feeling 100 percent healthy as his lengthy rehab from a quad injury continues.

Leonard and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich are expected to meet in the coming days as both sides look to move past a season-long rift.

San Antonio can offer the 26-year-old two-time NBA All-Star a five-year, $219 million supermax contract extension this summer.

Per The Express-News:

With the NBA Draft approaching, the Spurs are attempting to settle in-house business first, starting with Leonard. League sources tell the Express-News head coach Gregg Popovich and Leonard are trying to schedule a meeting, possibly this week, to discuss any issues or concerns Leonard may have, and hopefully come to a decision on offering Leonard the five-year, $219 million supermax extension he is eligible to receive.

Leonard, who is still rehabbing from his quad injury, is close to feeling 100 percent – “He’s at 96, 97 percent,” a source told the Express-News – and anticipates being ready for the start training camp in September.
