Report: Kawhi Leonard to Meet With Lakers and Clippers in Free Agency

by June 27, 2019

Kawhi Leonard will reportedly grant free agency meetings to both the Lakers and Clippers in Los Angeles.

Leonard, 27, declined a $21.3 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent.

The reigning Finals MVP is expected to allow the Toronto Raptors to make the final presentation in an effort to convince him to re-sign with the NBA champs.

Per Yahoo Sports:

The Lakers are positioned to sign one max player in free agency, and the Clippers have space for two max spots. The 2019 Finals MVP also is seriously considering re-signing with the Raptors, sources said.

The New York Knicks are also working on securing a meeting with Leonard, sources said.

Leonard, 27, is perhaps the top free agent on the market, and the Raptors are the only team that can offer him a max contract for five years and $190 million.
