It's being reported that the Clippers will be "aggressive trade bidders" in Kawhi Leonard talks.
As expected, with Los Angeles at the heart of Leonard's trade request. His camp decided to go through the media rather than tell the Spurs first so San Antonio hasn't done much prep at the moment, but you can expect that interested teams are lining up already. The Lakers remain Leonard's preferred destination but the Clippers aren't far behind as he apparently wants to play in his hometown. The Clippers probably can't offer up the same caliber of assets as the Lakers, but perhaps San Antonio wants to defend against enabling a superteam in Purple and Gold.
