Everyone is expecting Kawhi Leonard to make his free agency this week. The rumors of him choosing the Lakers are heating up but in the end, nobody really knows who Leonard is 100% committed to. He supposedly held his final meeting in Toronto with the Raptors today where he could possibly return to repeat as champions.
According to Stephen A. Smith during radio show today, he told Yahoo’s Chris Haynes that reliable sources have been telling him that Leonard is going to the Lakers but doesn’t know how true they are to be.
“I’m getting word right now from a couple reliable sources: Kawhi going to the Lakers. I don’t know how true it is to be quite honest with you, but they’re telling me: Lakers, Lakers, Lakers.”
The other hometown Clippers are in the mix to get Leonard as well. It seems that the consensus is that the Lakers and Raptors are the top two teams though. Flip the page to hear Stephen A. discussing his sources saying Leonard to the Lakers will happen.
