No, not yet, some trees just take longer. Repotting now won't affect whether it will leaf out or not.

Usually, people don't put ordinary trees in pots.

So give it some more time. More than likely, it will leaf out. When it does, you can post another photo here, and someone will be able to identify it. Once you know what it is, it will be easier to know what to do with it.

yup-sounds like a good plan.

The tree looks remarkably like a magnolia which often turn black and stop budding/blooming if there is a sudden cold snap (as jacqueg suggested). By all means, keep it... it will soon grow leaves and there may be a second chance at it blooming later this season.

I think it's a magnolia also. Specifically, this type:
Saucer Magnolia Trees - Information and Pictures

They are quite hardy. The first year we planted them deer broke them off almost to the root ball, they came back. We've had late frosts after they bloomed, which kills off the flowers, but not the tree.
