It's being reported that Gregg Popovich is heading to California to meet with Kawhi Leonard ahead of Thursday's draft.
Leonard and his camp recently announced their trade request through the media rather than alert the Spurs first, and it's thought that the relationship between player and organization is irreparable at this point. It looks like a last-ditch attempt for the Spurs to change Leonard's mind, as if he remains steadfast in his desire to leave then it could have major ramifications on how San Antonio operates on Thursday night. Some of the teams in the lottery are reportedly willing to trade their top picks as part of a package for Kawhi, so an already-crazy night could get even crazier if Pop can't work some magic.
