Per Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, the Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs have had discussions about Kawhi Leonard, but the two sides have made no headway.

According to Bulpett’s latest update on the situation, a league source said that the Spurs and Celtics had a “brief discussion” today, but no “real” negotiations took place. This was the first contact between the two teams since before the draft.

This was followed by a report from Yahoo’s Chris Mannix, which said that San Antonio is in no rush to deal their star forward.

The 2018 NBA Free Agency period officially begins on Sunday, July 1.
