Kawhi Made It “Very, Very Clear” He ⛹Wants to Play For The Lakers.
Sorry Spurs fans, there’s no getting around it. Kawhi Leonard wants to be a Laker.
Since the beginning of Kawhi’s summer trade demands, much speculation has gone into where he might be going. The Sixers, Celtics, Clippers, and Cavs were the teams apparently making a run for him. Ultimately though, he basically eliminated most of those possibilities when he made his desire to move to LA known.
And although the Spurs are trying their best to hang on, the inevitable conclusion is spiraling towards its end with Stephen A Smith’s newest report.
“From what I am being told…he’s made it very, very clear that he’s looking to go to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers and he does not care about the $219 million super max he could sign.”, Stephen A. Smith on Kawhi Leonard.
Lately, the reports surrounding Leonard’s future have been hazy… at best. But even with all the contradicting stories, Kawhi’s desire to wear the purple and gold remains the undeniable truth.
Whether he gets traded there this year or signs with them next year as a free-agent, it’s clear he’ll be a Laker sooner or later.
