With the recent news that Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio, the Milwaukee Bucks should do whatever they can to acquire his services.
The chance to acquire an NBA superstar is few and far between. Even more so for a small market team like the Milwaukee Bucks. Still, that shouldn’t stop them from calling the San Antonio Spurs and inquiring about Kawhi Leonard.
Leonard struggled with injuries last season and reports continued to surface about his unhappiness in San Antonio. While many people brushed it off and believed he would come around to love the organization again, things have recently appeared to hit an all-time low.
Yahoo Sports reporter Shams Charania dropped a sham-wow on Friday afternoon when he reported Leonard wants out of the Spurs organization:
Even though things have been building up to this point between Leonard and the Spurs, very few people can honestly say there were expecting this climax. Now, whether or not the trade actually happens is a completely different question.
Leonard is the type of superstar that doesn’t come around very often. He’s in the middle of his prime at 26-years-old and is a two-way stud. He can lock down anybody in the NBA and can also drop 20 plus points on their head at the other end of the court.
The Bucks should do whatever it takes short of trading Giannis Antetokounmpo to get this guy. He would immediately make them better and a legit contender in the Eastern Conference. Here are three different offers they can make for Leonard.
