While there are restricted free agents still available, the biggest names in free agency have found homes.

Leonard reportedly had expressed his interest to get shipped to the Los Angeles Lakers, but any discussions linking him to La La Land have ebbed significantly, especially after the Lakers' acquisition of LeBron James.

Kevin Durant re-upped on a short-term deal with the Golden State Warriors, Chris Paul returned to the Houston Rockets on a four-year mega contract, and Paul George broke the bank re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

But the biggest trade piece in the National Basketball Association remains on the market. Kawhi Leonard is most certainly unhappy with his situation with the San Antonio Spurs.

The Leonard-Spurs saga has seemingly lingered for months now.

The 76ers are willing to walk away from the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes.

Leonard is a former NBA Finals MVP, winning the award at age 22 when the Spurs defeated LeBron's Miami Heat team in the 2015 Finals.

Another team that has been mentioned as a possible landing spot is the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Toronto Raptors also generated buzz as a potential destination for Leonard. This past Tuesday, Butler's Instagram account liked a comment that simply read, "jimmy to spurs".

"Sixers are the only Eastern Conference team [Kawhi] will consider signing with ..."

Considering the Sixers were swept out of the playoffs by the Celtics this past year, they could definitely use a player like Leonard to help compete with an even more loaded Boston team next season.

The Clippers may have the assets that San Antonio would want in the event that the Spurs finally relent to Leonard's trade request.
