According to multiple reports, the Portland Trailblazers have expressed interest in San Antonio Spurs’ superstar Kawhi Leonard after a phone call between the two parties took place. A report written by Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN states that the Trailblazers enter their name on the list of teams that have contacted the Spurs via phone calls, joining teams like the Clippers, Nuggets, Suns, Raptors, and Wizards on that list.

Kawhi has made his intentions clear with the Spurs: He would like to be traded to LA

While the phone call reportedly generated little to no promise, it does say something about the Trailblazers as an organization for reaching out to the Spurs. The Trailblazers haven’t had much success in the playoffs as of late, despite having solid regular seasons. In a universe where the Trailblazers are able to offer and receive Kawhi Leonard, the teams value and potential would skyrocket, not to mention the fact that a player like Kawhi would help them succeed in the playoffs. This outcome seems highly unlikely though, as the Blazers don’t seem to be willing to break up their young core and the offer didn’t seem to be to serious towards the Spurs.
