The Spurs have wanted to find a way to fix the franchise's relationship with Leonard, but an overwhelming Lakers offer could convince San Antonio to part with its franchise star, league sources said.
The 26-year-old, a former Finals MVP and Defensive Player of the Year, has a year left on his current deal, meaning Spurs executives are likely to demand a hefty package of assets to trade their star man.
Note that this does NOT mean that we can not re-sign any of these players, unlike what some would lead you to believe.

For Irving, the Cleveland Cavaliers received Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round draft pick. James had been clear that he wouldn't engage with the Cavaliers throughout the pre-draft and pre-free-agent process, and he has stayed consistent with that posture. The executive pointed out a similar dynamic played out "in Cleveland four years ago", when James very publicly declared he would leave the Heat for the Cavs, after which the latter team made a blockbuster trade for Kevin Love. Magic Johnson and the Lakers have put themselves in a position to sign two and possibly acquire a third max contract.
Those comments came after Irving publicly didn't rule out playing alongside James once again at some point in his career.
James, of course, is a contender for the award every year by nature of him being the best basketball player alive, but has not won it since 2013. This would presumably make the Lakers' pitch to LeBron that much more enticing.
