Kawhi Contract: What options are on the table for Kawhi Leonard?

Kawhi Contract: What options are on the table for Kawhi Leonard?”

There appears to be a different answer depending on who you ask. He Gone. Leonard is signing with the Clippers, or someone else, it doesn't matter because he's not a Raptor.

"We have been intrigued by the energy and feel-good factor generated by the Raptors this season - culminating in their ascent to the ongoing NBA Finals", Peter Mayers, Director of BTMI in Canada said in a statement.

Sam Amick of The Athletic also reports that LeBron and Davis are planning on being part of the Lakers' recruiting pitch to Kawhi.

"Toronto, the Clippers - I think they've kept their eye on the Lakers and what that's going to look like", he said on the Woj & Lowe podcast. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne echoed the same sentiment on the "Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective" podcast.

Injured for all but nine games in his final season with San Antonio, Leonard played 60 games this season and another 24 in the playoffs.

Ever since last summer it has been well documented that Kawhi Leonard has had a strong desire to sign a long term contract in his home state of California. "I know what we've built here", Ujiri said, according to The Associated Press. This has been a #Raptors-#Clippers race.

Maybe Leonard has no interest in completing a Lakers' Big 3.

As he reflected on the way Leonard was embraced by the city and the team, Ujiri made sure on Tuesday to hark back to DeRozan - the player cast off in the trade.

It could be a question that the Lakers have to answer sooner rather than later.

So, naturally, Raptors fans are looking for any hints they can get their hands on - this one might give a little bit of reassurance.

Leonard declined the player option for the final year of his contract, so he'll become a free agent on Sunday.

Ujiri says he and Leonard have had multiple talks the past several days, discussions he called "positive".

There have been a few players already connected to the Lakers since the Davis trade was announced.
