Wherever Kawhi Leonard plays next season, it's looking less likely to be for the Los Angeles Lakers, at least for the moment.

The Lakers got a hard "no" from the San Antonio Spurs when inquiring about that player's availability this week, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

After the much-publicized trade request by Kawhi, the Lakers evidently did their due diligence, and were met with a very firm assurance the Spurs front office had no intention whatever in dealing with the Los Angeles-based club.

According to Shelburne, the call did not even get to the point of discussing potential players to include in a deal despite Leonard's desire to end up in that southern Californian city.

No word as of now if there's a draft night move on the table planned for Kawhi, but until such a trade is finalized, or he signs the Designated Veteran Player Exception (yet to be turned down by a player), the possibility of Leonard in another uniform is sure to spark intense debate and entice envious minds.
