Kawhi Leonard is looking to become the first San Antonio Spurs star in a long time to not take less for the betterment of the organization.
Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that contract talks between Leonard and the Spurs have broken down because the NBA Finals MVP wants nothing less than a maximum deal.
As Kawhi Leonard holds firm on his desire for a maximum contract, extension talks with the San Antonio Spurs have failed to gather traction despite a looming Friday deadline, league sources told Yahoo Sports. […]
[M]ultiple league executives told Yahoo Sports he’ll command a max offer sheet on the market next summer. The Spurs would assuredly match a sheet and retain Leonard, but there remains the risk of Leonard signing a similar offer sheet to Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons.
Leonard averaged 12.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, two assists and 1.7 steals a game in 29 minutes in the 2013-14 season.
Leonard was the second-youngest NBA Finals MVP in history, behind Magic Johnson.
