The Philadelphia 76ers have been mentioned as a potential destination for Kawhi Leonard if the Spurs end up trading him. The All-Star forward would reportedly consider re-signing in Philadelphia next summer.
The Sixers reportedly have their eyes on more than just Leonard, though. Another big figure in San Antonio's organization is a possible target.
Philadelphia needs a new general manager after the Bryan Colangelo fiasco. The Spurs have one of the best in the league in R.C. Buford.
He's reportedly been named a possible option.
Multiple sources have said that Kiki VanDeWeghe has expressed interest in the job. VanDeWeghe is the NBA’s executive vice president for basketball operations. He has had GM stints with the Nets and the Nuggets.
Former Cavaliers general manager David Griffin was once mentioned as the leading candidate for the job. Spurs general manager R.C. Buford has been mentioned as a possible target, according to sources. However, the Sixers would have a tough time prying him away from San Antonio.
It's tough to imagine Buford leaving San Antonio for Philadelphia unless the Sixers present him with a monetary offer he just can't refuse.
It would be a massive coup for Philadelphia if it happens, though.
