Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs have developed a strained relationship over the past few months and may even want a trade.
"Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio is what I'm hearing," said Jalen Rose on First Take. "The reason why is twofold. One is they've been unable to attract elite level, All-NBA caliber free agents to come play with him. Think about this: the reason why, in my opinion, we always talk about players joining large market teams. We never say who's going to San Antonio to play with Kawhi.
"Here is why I think players have not done that. The Spurs' way looks like opportunity dressed in overalls. It looks like work and people really don't want that.
"When you go to San Antonio, guess who is the CEO of that organization? Gregg Popovich. It's going to be his way.
"So for Kawhi and also the way his injury situation was handled. You see him in the lineup, you see him out of the lineup. Is it his quad? What's going on with his history? Was he misdiagnosed?
