Kawhi Leonard remains a high priority for Spurs

Although rumors continue to swirl around Kawhi Leonard's future in San Antonio, the Spurs appear to be making the veteran a priority. 

According to a report from ESPN, which cited unidentified sources, the Spurs are planning to have a high-priority, "all hands on deck" meeting with Leonard and coach Gregg Popovich is expected to lead the conversation.

The meeting is expected to take place over the summer. The Spurs were eliminated from the playoffs Tuesday with a 99-91 loss to the Warriors in Game 5. 

Despite all the speculation and uncertainty, Leonard's teammate Danny Green said he's still fully part of the team.

"Kawhi, everybody asks questions, but he's still here," Green said. "He's still locked in. He's a part of the team until things change."

Leonard played in only nine games this season as he battled a quad injury throughout. He missed the first 27 before making a sporadic return, but didn't play after Jan. 13. The star forward returned to New York earlier this month to continue rehab on his quad for the second time this season and it has been reported there is no clear timetable on when he will be back with the team.
