Kawhi considering taking part in USA Basketball camp

Kawhi Leonard could be spending some time around Gregg Popovich next week in Las Vegas.

While the relationship between Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs remains anything but certain, the two-time first-team All-NBA player is reportedly seriously considering taking part in the USA Basketball national team’s minicamp in Las Vegas next week.

Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN report it would be an opportunity for Leonard to showcase his recovery from the right quadriceps injury that limited him to only nine games last season to prospective trade partners.

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, the coach of the national team, will lead the camp.

Leonard became eligible to receive a five-year, $221 million supermax contract from the Spurs on Monday, but that has not gained any traction with Leonard having made it clear he has no desire to return to the Spurs.

The two-time All-Star is in the final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent after next summer.
