Kawhi Leonard will be ready and healthy for training camp after suffering a quad injury.

“Kawhi Leonard didn’t necessarily ‘go rogue’, despite all the reports,” said Shams Charania. “He was working out with San Antonio staffers during the season and now going into the summer, his rehab has continued. He’s been around. He went to Gregg Popovich’s wife’s service shortly after the season ended. People close to him, they made it clear he was there. He interacted with Spurs’ officials, with staffers.”

Charania was asked about the current state of his injury and whether he’ll be ready for the start of next season.

“He’ll be ready,” said Charania. “He’s already, I think, at close to 100 percent. He’ll be fine going into the year.”

Leonard will meet with Gregg Popovich in the coming weeks to discuss his future with the franchise.

Charania was asked whether the situation is as simple as Leonard being offered a supermax contract and he’ll take it.

“No, they’ve go to sit down and sort through all the issues before they can even get to any contractual number. There were a lot of miscommunications that went on during the course of the season they need to catch up on and rehash.

“They haven’t had a full sit-down. He’s been around at different points since the season ended but they haven’t sat down formally. Until they do, we would just be speculating. They need to get on the same page in a lot of areas.”

Charania also reported that the Spurs haven’t entertained trade offers for Leonard.

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.

Jabari Parker won’t be with the Bulls next season.

Heck, he might not be with them much longer. The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen’s rotation Thursday.

There’s considerable interest in Parker, 23, who remains a versatile scorer. Finding the right match financially is the obstacle that needs to be cleared, but there’s motivation to get a deal done.
