We are only down to a few days for the new NBA season. Meanwhile, the NBA trade rumors continue to get unpredictable and surprising. According to new sources, San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors might swap Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard.
GSW's Klay Thompson and San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard are among the superstars on their respective teams. So, what brings the two NBA players in this situation?
Since Kevin Durant joined Golden State Warriors, many believe that it will affect Klay Thompson the most. Although Klay is good at shooting, the former OKC Thunder player is better at it and is even popular on his last minute shots.
In fact, there are rumors that aside from Klay Thompson, KD's presence in GSW will also be a threat to Thompson's Splash Brother Stephen Curry. At the time, Golden State Warriors has an ideal lineup but NBA fans and critics are worry if there's a mess among the players, especially the Splash Brothers against Kevin Durant.
Meanwhile, earlier reports suggest that San Antonio Spurs is making their big three. Reports have it that this includes Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. Spurs are reportedly eyeing Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry or LA Clippers' Blake Griffin to complete their next big three.
Well, it seems that things have changed. According to Inquisitr, San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors are in trade talks involving the swapping of their key players Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard. So what will happen to Spurs' next big three now?
The reports added that trading the two NBA All-Stars is possible because it works under the NBA's Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). Although this is the case, NBA fans should still take this report with a grain of salt because it only comes from Milwaukee Bucks' Jason Terry.

Per Yahoo! News, Jason Terry started this due to his controversial comments identifying both Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard as part of the B-side players. These are the NBA players whom according to Terry are taking the supporting cast role but not a bench player.
Jason Terry goes on and suggests that A-side players or the superstars include Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James, the Warrior Stephen Curry, OKC Thunder's Russell Westbrook and LA Clippers' Chris Paul.
