Report: Leonard wants out of San Antonio; interested in Lakers

Not much of a surprise here, but according to ESPN, Kawhi Leonard no longer wants to play in San Antonio. Leonard is frustrated with how the organization handled his quad injury and feels the franchise turned on him once he sought a second opinion, according to the report.

The two-time All-Star’s preferred destination is the Los Angeles Lakers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

You wonder what type of impact this will have on free agency.  Could this be a set up for a super team in Los Angeles with the Lakers?  Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

The Spurs can offer Leonard a supermax contract at five-years, $219 million, so the Spurs have that working for them. Leonard has two years left on his contract, but he has a player option in the 2019-20 season.
