San Antonio has been prioritizing working through the issues with Leonard, but they have encouraged rival teams to present an offer if they so choose.
It also says that Leonard told confidants he originally did not want to sit down with Popovich and that he has been intentionally hard to reach.
ESPN initially reported that Popovich was flying to California to meet with Leonard before Thursday's (Friday, PHL time) Draft before amending its report to indicate the meeting had taken place on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time).
Leonard and Popovich are expected to have more dialogue going forward, so perhaps the highly respected coach can smooth things over with his star player and convince him to stick around.

Wojnarowski and Shelburne report that the Spurs are unlikely to be motivated to facilitate a deal to the Lakers.
Leonard, who turns 27 later this month, has been the subject of trade speculation for months after last season produced extensive tension between him and the team over the handling of his quadriceps tendinopathy, which limited Leonard to just nine games, during which he averaged 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds. Leonard is recovering from a right quad injury. He has a player option for the following season which he would decline to become a free agent.
In a report by Ramona Shelburne and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, it appears that Leonard's rift with the Spurs is unsalvageable especially after past comments from the team's pillars in Popovich and Tony Parker.
Leonard is eligible to sign a five-year, $219 million super max contract with the Spurs this summer.
