Report: Gregg Popovich is Determined to Trade Kawhi Leonard This Summer, Blames a Specific Person For Their Beef

Longtime NBA reporter Peter Vecsey on his Patreon page is saying that Pop has made up his mind and will trade Kawhi.

What is more interesting to me at least is who Pop is blaming, Amico Hoops breaks that down.

The well-connected Vecsey cited a source who said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich didn’t even want Leonard attending practices.

“Keep him away from us,” Popovich would say, via Vecsey’s source. Apparently, Leonard’s uncle had been “poisoning (Leonard’s) mind against everyone.”

According to Vecsey, Leonard’s uncle “convinced Kawhi the Spurs’ medical staff were more concerned with the team’s best interests, not his.”

Meanwhile, an opposing Western Conference executive told Vecsey that “San Antonio’s hoary Holy Grail has lost its luster. I’m convinced Kawhi will be traded, but it’ll be to an Eastern team.”

The Celtics have been rumored to be very interested.
