Kawhi Leonard set to return to Canada this fall

NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard is reportedly headed to the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers surrendered their first-rounder picks in 2022, 2024 and 2026, plus sent ones for 2021 and 2023 that were obtained through Miami, to Oklahoma City to complete the George trade. "How could he do that?" the 40-year-old fan said. After that, the Dubs might only have to contend with Leonard's Clippers for one more season before potentially climbing back to the top of the Western Conference depending on where the dominoes fall. Most assumed Durant would miss the entire 2019-20 season, but the team declined Tuesday to indicate how long that recovery would take, lest they not spoil Durant's next surprise.

"His expectation, and ours, is to contend for championships", Frank said.

Kevin Durant signed a four-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets, but he might only be with the team for three seasons. That's when Leonard's Los Angeles Clippers will play the Dallas Mavericks as part of the seventh NBA Canada Series, which brings NBA pre-season games to various Canadian cities. I communicated with him afterwards and it was very good, and I think that we got a great deal out of this - we won a championship, so I'm happy and honestly, it's on to the next.

Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri says there's no need for fans to be concerned over the departure of NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard.

Kawhi Leonard and his decision to be with the Los Angeles Clippers is one of the biggest shockers during the recent National Basketball Association free agency. "We both discussed the culture, we both discussed the makeup of the team and so forth".

That sentiment was echoed by Manuel Lutz, who would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night to watch the Raptors play from his home in southern Germany.

While the Raptors still have talent on the roster, now led by the likes of Pascal Siakam, Anunoby needs to show he can be a consistent option on the offensive end in order to give the Raptors faith and confidence in signing the 6-foot-8 wing to another contract.

Leonard averaged 30.5 points in the playoffs, was named the Finals MVP and helped the Raptors avoid elimination by knocking down a insane bouncing buzzer beater in the fourth quarter of Game 7 against the 76ers in the second round. Over 24 playoff games, he averaged 30.5 points with 9.1 rebounds.

The NBA announced on Tuesday that the Los Angeles Clippers will travel to Vancouver for an October 17 exhibition game against the Dallas Mavericks as part of the league's annual Canada Series.
