Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics might be the best remaining trade option for the Spurs should San Antonio move All-Star Kawhi Leonard.Speaking on the Los Angeles Lakers' channel on Spectrum SportsNet earlier this week, NBA insider and salary cap expert Larry Coon reported extreme trade demands from the Spurs put the Celtics ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers, who aren't willing to implode the existing roster around LeBron James to add Leonard, who is one season away from free agency.The Celtics have popped up in a variety of trade rumors this offseason, particularly in connection with Leonard, after the two-time Defensive Player of the Year reportedly requested a trade.ESPN reported Friday the Spurs were actively involved in discussions with the Celtics and Lakers about Leonard, but the Celtics also appear apprehensive to go all-in on Leonard due to concerns about his health and the possibility that he could leave in free agency next summer.
