Kawhi Leonard was the breakout player for the NBA 2018-19, who single-handedly made the Toronto Raptors win the finals. He was even named the MVP for the finals, and now every team wants him in their squad. As speculated, Leonard has turned into a free agent and is planning to get a better deal from one of the states NBA team.
Even his stats are amazing with 30.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists per match. Two of the Los Angeles teams are very interested in him, and even Leonard has hinted about changing team. Here are the four possible team options, that Kawhi Leonard has as a free agent.
Los Angeles Clipper
One of the top names in the list where Kawhi Leonard could go is the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers is an unstable team with a lot of money in their cap space, and they want the biggest free agent in their squad. Even, the sister of Kawhi Leonard has hinted that her brother might join the Clippers for the next NBA season. It makes a lot of sense, as Leonard would be the main star in the Clippers and won’t have to share his limelight with any other player.
New York Knicks
The next name in the list is the New York Knicks who has a lot of money and is trying to get every NBA superstar possible. The Knicks is hell-bent on getting Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving or Kawhi Leonard. While the team is not performing that good, it is a perfect opportunity for Leonard to join the biggest NBA team. Even, the deal he would get will be better than most of the other teams, as the Knicks are the top-earning NBA team.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers seem to be interested in quality rather quantity in the deals. It is why they had Anthony Davis by giving 3 players to the Pelicans. LeBron James and Anthony Davis duo already look solid, and by adding Kawhi Leonard, it would be a deadly combination. Even Leonard would like to play together with the legend LeBron James if he gets a better offer.
In the entire NBA, no player has changed his team after being named as the MVP of finals. Toronto Raptors would offer him the best deal possible, as they don’t want to lose their star player. Kawhi Leonard knows this very well, and he is already a star of Raptors, why would he break the dynamics.
