Kawhi Leonard is now the biggest storyline of the NBA offseason, with LeBron James heading to the Lakers and DeMarcus Cousins going to the Warriors. The future of Leonard in San Antonio is now the thing to watch.

What's going to happen? Is Leonard going to be traded soon? Here's the latest.

NBA insider Jordan Schultz is reporting that a couple of the Spurs' best trade partners - Celtics, Lakers, Sixers - have been unwilling to give up what San Antonio wants in return for Leonard.

Kawhi is an MVP-caliber player and, if healthy, should fetch quite the package. But that package doesn't seem to be available right now.

"Celtics aren't giving up Tatum and are lukewarm on prospect of trading Jaylen Brown, nor do I foresee C's dealing Kyrie. Lakers aren't keen on dealing Brandon Ingram and 76ers prefer to keep Fultz. I still believe Kawhi gets dealt -- but to where, I'm really unsure," he reports.

It does still feel like Kawhi will be traded. He reportedly remains intent on wanting out of San Antonio.

The Spurs, though, clearly have not yet received the kind of offer they'd seriously consider. Maybe a surprise NBA team will emerge with a package San Antonio is intrigued by.
