A new suitor has emerged in the Kawhi Leonard trade sweepstakes.

Leonard is the type of franchise-changing talent who can propel the Raptors forward, with him looking like one of the best in the league prior to his injury.

Multiple teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, have reportedly engaged the Spurs in trade talks, but neither of those teams are the favorite to add Leonard to their roster, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks. ESPN's Brian Windhorst then said in an appearance on SN 590 The Fan Wednesday that National Basketball Association executives believe the Raptors are one of the best positioned teams to make a play for Leonard.

Earlier in the week, Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post reported that the Toronto Raptors are gaining momentum as a potential Leonard suitor. The Raptors have five straight years of 48-plus wins and no NBA Finals appearances, culminating this past season with a second-round sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers as the East's No.1 seed.

Despite their worsening relationship with Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs are still hoping that they can get valuable assets that could keep them competitive in the Western Conference. The team reportedly isn't looking to rebuild after making the playoffs without their best player for nearly an entire season.

Now the betting site has Toronto at even money while San Antonio has moved to +400 in regards to retaining Leonard. The 76ers might not be able to get a deal done until they include former No.1 overall pick Markelle Fultz in a trade package.
