Kawhi reportedly prefers the Los Angeles Lakers as a trade destination.
Leonard, according to sources, has grown frustrated with how the organization handled his quad injury and feels the franchise turned on him once he sought a second opinion.
A source with the Spurs told ESPN that Leonard hasn’t asked them for a trade.
Leonard has communicated with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich in recent days, sources say, but the two have yet to speak in person.
