The Toronto Raptors are one of just three teams who are still alive in the NBA Playoffs, but people are already looking ahead to the Raps’ offseason and, more specifically, what will happen to their best player.
With Kawhi Leonard set to become a free agent this summer, his suitors aren’t sitting around waiting for his offseason to officially roll around. They’re already lining up at Kawhi’s door, begging for the chance to add one of the league’s best players to their roster.
It has already been reported that LeBron James has been in talks with Kawhi to join the Lakers. And now there’s this from the Raptors:
Some details, via Narcity:
Simon Mass, CEO of The Condo Store Realty Inc. is prepared to gift Leonard a multi-million-dollar penthouse in downtown Toronto if the player agrees to re-sign with the Raptors. A representative for the brokerage confirmed to Narcity that Kawhi will get to choose between several lavish penthouse condos at the Four Seasons, St. Regis or Carlton Residences in Toronto.
So let me get this straight. Kawhi can join the Lakers and be forced to deal with LeBron’s ego for the next few years. Or he can take a free multi-million-dollar condo and sign a larger contract with Toronto.
This is an easy decision…
