The last major free agent domino has finally fallen. After much speculation, which at one point included aerially following SUV’s thought to contain Leopard he has finally made a decision regarding where he will be playing next year and that will be with the Los Angeles Clippers.
According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Leonard will sign with the Clippers. It will be a four year, $142 million maximum contract. Kawhi had been linked with the ballclub at several points throughout this past season.
After helping the Toronto Raptors win their first ever NBA title, there was some thought that ascending to those heights might be enough to convince him to remain but that proved not to be the case. The addition of Leonard immediately, on paper anyway, puts the Clippers in the top half of Western Conference teams.
