For now, the San Antonio Spurs are saying they aren't trading Kawhi Leonard. That could always change though.

If they do, there will be no shortage of suitors for the 26-year-old star. When healthy, Leonard is arguably a top-five player in the NBA.

The Boston Celtics have been the odds-on "favorites" to land Leonard, according to BetDSI, but now a surprising new team is moving up the list: the Orlando Magic.

In the latest odds put out by BetDSI, the Magic have the third-best shot at landing Leonard. Only the Celtics and 76ers are better.

Here are the full odds:

We don't see the Magic as a legit option for Leonard, but there are few teams in the league that could use his ability more. The Magic have been starved for success for the last few seasons.

The teams hasn't made the playoffs since 2012. They likely wouldn't get there even if they did get Leonard.

It would be a nice start though.
