Dallas Mavericks rumors: Making run at Kawhi Leonard

The Mavs have been linked to Kawhi a couple of times already this offseason. The latest was by Marc Stein who noted that Leonard’s ACL surgery will have zero impact on Dallas’ pursuit. It should not. It is extremely rare to be able to acquire a top ten player in the league. The Mavericks will do everything in their power to make it happen.

Kawhi has a player option for next season. If he opts out, he will be free to sign with any team. Leonard holds all the power. Every team in the league will do anything they can to get the Klaw’s signature this summer.

It is strictly shooting in the dark when gauging what Kawhi Leonard is going to do this offseason. The Dallas Mavericks are hoping to get a meeting. It will then be up to their new front office to convince Kawhi that playing with Luka is what is best for his future. Leonard holds all the cards and may take plenty of time to make a decision.
