Four days into free agency and Kawhi Leonard is still without a team.
The Raptors, Clippers and Lakers all battling for his services. We here at Basketball Rehab had the Clippers as the frontrunner's for the last week or so. However Toronto had a great meeting and has moved back into the lead to retain Kawhi. The Lakers according to our sources have moved up from a distant third to a close third. However Kawhi has serious concern's about Laker's FO, Medical staff and doesn't really want to play with Lebron James.
Leonard reportedly met with the Raptors to hear their pitch. Analysts believe that Leonard’s best option is to ink a two-year deal with the second year as a player option, but apparently that hasn’t been discussed. Either he stays with the Raptors or signs with another team.
Update Kawhi is back to leaning towards the Clippers but really wants another star to come with him according to our intel.
