The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard. With LeBron James out of the Eastern Conference, perhaps Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri is willing to swing for the fences and move DeMar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry in such a deal.

According to the latest odds from Online Sportsbook Bet My Bookie the Raptors are now the favorites to pick up Kawhi Leonard via trade.

Lakers +500

76ers +800
Celtics +800
Bucks +1000
Knicks +1500
Cavaliers +2000
Rockets +2000
Nets +2500
Field +500

Leonard has made it very clear that he wants to go out west next season and play for an L.A. team but maybe the Raptors can convince him to stay in the east where there’s less competition now that LeBron is no longer with the Cavs. Toronto is a pretty large market and having Drake on their side could maybe help them keep Leonard for the long run.
