What are the chances Kawhi Leonard leaves LA for Dallas Mavericks or any other team?
Kawhi is the most tight-lipped superstar in the NBA. He is not posting on social media or leaking information to insiders. Nobody knows what Leonard is going to do this offseason. There has been talk about his unhappiness with the Clippers and their medical staff, but take that with a grain of salt.
Remember, nobody knew where Kawhi was going to sign when he was a free agent in 2019. There was a ton of speculation about him joining LeBron James on the Lakers. He wanted to come home to LA but had just won the title with the Raptors. The Knicks and Nets were also rumored destinations. The Clippers had to land a second star to secure his services.
What fans know about Kawhi is that he wants to win. He is going to sign with a team that he believes can compete for a championship. Is that the Clippers? They have been knocked out two straight years without reaching the NBA Final, but they are certainly title contenders.
Odds Kawhi Leonard leaves the LA Clippers this offseason: 15 percent
The chances could change a ton in the coming weeks. Right now, it appears like a safe bet that Kawhi will remain in Los Angeles with the Clippers. He will have his pick of destinations because every team in the league wants and will do what it has to do to acquire Kawhi Leonard.
