From NBA Twitter and media reports
Update 11:14 p.m ET: Leonard will reportedly not attend camp
It appears that Kawhi Leonard will report for this week’s USA Basketball camp, which will be conducted for the first time by his former San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, according to TSN’s Josh Lewenberg.
As of now, Kawhi Leonard is expected to be in Vegas for this week's USA Basketball camp (as are DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry). To what degree he plans on participating in practices (if at all) is up in the air, I'm told.

It would be the first time that Leonard and Popovich appear publicly together since the Spurs traded Leonard to Toronto in a deal that included DeMar DeRozan being sent back to Texas.
The camp will also be the first time DeRozan and long-time teammate Kyle Lowry, who are also expected to be at camp, will be seen together for the first time since the deal.
In April, USA Basketball announced 35 NBA players were expected to be a roster of players who were expected to attend the camp held on Las Vegas from Wednesday through Friday.
Curry’s teammate Kevin Durant is expected to participate in Las Vegas.
