Jul 17, 2018 4:25 PM

Kawhi Leonard is seriously considering attending USA Basketball national team's minicamp in Las Vegas next week. Leonard holds some enthusiasm for showcasing his revitalized health in the wake of the quad injury that has been at the center of discord between the Spurs and him, sources said.  

Gregg Popovich will lead the camp in his role as national team coach.

Leonard continues to seek a trade from the San Antonio Spurs.

bidding war among the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers never materialized. The Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards are among teams who've talked with the Spurs, league sources said.

The Celtics and 76ers appear to have lost traction in their appetite to trade for Leonard as they're well-positioned for the future regardless. The Lakers appear to be playing the longer game in trade talks.

The Spurs have yet to allow prospective trade partners to talk directly with Leonard or his reps.
