If Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs are able to mend their partnership, there could be some changes to the culture of the franchise.

Leonard has mainly rehabbed away from the Spurs and has been based in New York.

Leonard may want some changes to the way Gregg Popovich conducts practices and other areas.

“Don’t you have to sign him,” asks one rival executive. “From what I understand, he wants (Gregg) Popovich to lighten up a little with practice and tweak some things. The Spurs may not want to change their ways, but this is Kawhi Leonard we’re talking about.”
