That has supposedly put some teams off making a move as they face the potential risk of trading away several assets for essentially a one-year loan with Leonard able to leave on as a free agent in 2019.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the game against the Los Angeles Lakers on December 14, 2017 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
