The Kings could be interested in making a run for Kawhi Leonard, according to Yahoo Sports.
Another team to watch in the Kawhi sweepstakes: Sacramento. Kings have talked to teams about the No. 2 pick, per sources, and desperately want an established star.

The Kings, who hold the No. 2 pick in next week’s draft would have to part ways with their selection as well as throw in some additional youth to grab the former two-time Defensive Player of the Year.
According to Mannix, the Kings want an established star. General manager Vlade Divac has two years left on his deal and he could attempt to make a splash while getting the Kings a former All Star.
It would be a lot to risk for a player who missed almost all of last season with a leg injury, but the Kings are in a position where they may feel like they require a star veteran to boost their young roster.
