Gregg Popovich Rumors
Sam Amick: Interesting follow-up note on today’s meeting between Kawhi Leonard and Gregg Popovich in San Diego: This had been scheduled for weeks, I’m told, and was not a response to Kawhi’s desire to be traded going public recently.
San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard met with coach Gregg Popovich on Tuesday in San Diego, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The meeting between the two faces of the Spurs’ franchise was done professionally and confidentially, league sources said.
The Spurs’ front office and Leonard’s representatives had been in communication since the season ended, and Leonard has been in contact with coach Gregg Popovich, league sources said. Leonard spent most of the second half of the season rehabbing his injury in New York, where his medical team was based and where he trained with Spurs staffers. He has returned close to full health from the lingering quad injury.
Jabari Young: Told Kawhi and Popovich did meet today, described as a “good” conversation. Expecting more dialogue in the future #Spurs #NBA
