If the San Antonio Spurs are hell-bent on trading Kawhi Leonard, it is a safe bet that Lonzo Ball will not be apart of any deal.

Per Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports, the Spurs have no interest in trading for Ball and “his circus” as part of any package with the Los Angeles Lakers for Kawhi.
And wouldn’t you know, there are the Lakers, semi-functional for the first time in years, with the assets to piece together an interesting trade package. San Antonio has zero interest in Lonzo Ball — or, more accurately, the circus that Ball brings with him — but a Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, draft-pick(s) deal (with Luol Deng tossed in to make the money work) is compelling, particularly if other teams, wary of Leonard walking in 2019, don’t go all-in with offers.
According to Mannix, the Spurs would probably prefer to send Leonard to the Eastern Conference, such as when the Indiana Pacers sent Paul George to the West last summer when trading him.
