Even if the Toronto Raptors lose the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors, this season has been a absolute success after the franchise went out and traded for Kawhi Leonard.
It has been widely speculated that he would be one-and-done as a member of the Toronto Raptors, but after a season where he is some three wins away from winning another title, he just might want to stay a little while longer.
According to TrueHoop sources, the NBA all-star might be interested in signing a short-term deal to remain in Canada and contend for a title for a few more years before ultimately moving on.
True Hoop’s sources come from “plugged in” people associated with players and the league, but not the Raptors themselves.
A short-term deal would be great, seeing as how two of the biggest players on the squad in Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol are 33 and 34-years-old. With the Boston Celtics likely to lose Kyrie Irving and the 76ers possibly losing Jimmy Butler, the Raptors could be a top team for at least two or three more years.
