While the San Antonio Spurs are listening to trade offers for Kawhi Leonard, the organization maintains hope of keeping him.
"As long as he hasn't been traded yet, there's some hope that things can be repaired," said Jabari Young. "Obviously he's probably being kept in the loop as far as what the Spurs are trying to do trying to trade him, which he's requested. They're also sending signals like 'Listen, we still want to try to work this out, so if we get down to the wire and all of a sudden Kawhi you have a change of heart, let's sit down. Let's talk. Let's try to work it out.'
"I think Kawhi has to also, in his head, be prepared to possibly come back here for another season because if the Spurs don't find a deal that's good enough for them, they don't pull that trigger. It has to be a win-win for both parties."
Young believes Leonard wouldn't actually sit out if he's not traded. Young was told approximately a month ago that Leonard is about 95 percent healthy.
The Spurs can still offer Leonard a supermax contract, which he couldn't sign with any other team.
