Kawhi Leonard is the biggest free agent name left on the market that the basketball world is waiting for to announce his decision on where he plans to play next season and beyond.
It’s basically a 3-team race between the Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers.
According to Broderick Turner of the L.A. Times, Kawhi and his uncle, Uncle Dennis, have already spoken with Magic Johnson about the possibility of joining the team, even though he technically doesn’t work for the organization anymore.
Like any other player, Leonard has some demands he wanted to get out to the team. Turned relayed to Spectrum Sportsnet that Leonard would like to bring his own staff, including trainers with him.
“LeBron James was able to bring on his own trainer, his own medical people. (Kawhi) wants to know if he can do that as well,” Turner explained. “LeBron James brought on some people that weren’t with the Lakers, and he wants to know ‘can I bring with a couple of my guys?’ … And as far as I know, the Lakers would be willing to do that, because you do those things for superstar players.”
Those demands make a ton of sense when you remember the fallout between Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs medical staff during the 2017-2018 season.
That issue eventually turned into Kawhi being traded to the Toronto Raptors where he won an NBA Championship.
