Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Boston Celtics sent the San Antonio Spurs a trade proposal before the trade deadline last February centering around injured forward Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs showed their interest level, or lack thereof, by turning down the offer and not making a counter proposal.

Leonard, coming off of a mysterious right quad injury, played just 9 games games for the Spurs this season after going down in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals last year against the Golden State Warriors. Leonard averaged 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals in his brief return in December before playing his last game on January 13th against the Denver Nuggets.

  Yes, the Celtics would be interested if Kawhi Leonard hits the market The Celtics and Spurs have not engaged in any trade talks this spring involving disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard, but if Leonard does indeed become available, Boston is expected to express interest, according to a league source.  This is not out of the ordinary, of course.

The Spurs’ lack of a response, both in February and since then, indicates that they’re more focused on repairing the relationship between Kawhi Leonard and the organization than moving on quickly. Per Wojnarowski, indications are that Leonard is seeking the super-max contract that only the Spurs can offer next summer if Leonard either makes one of the All-NBA teams or wins either the MVP award or Defensive Player of the Year.

It’s unclear at this time how much the Celtics would be willing to actually offer in serious trade negotiations for Leonard.
