According to The New York Times’ Marc Stein, Toronto Raptors global ambassador, Drake, is doing some recruitment work to persuade Kawhi Leonard to stick with the reigning NBA Champions.
“The Raptors haven’t backed off one centimeter and Drake is said to be mounting his own recruiting campaign on top of whatever the freshly minted champions are doing to convince him to stay,” Stein reported.
Kawhi Leonard is in a deep free agency battle that includes Los Angeles teams and Canada’s only NBA team. It seems that the Lakers are pulling out all the stops to try to make the home pitch to Kawhi over the Clippers.
It’s become quite apparent, that no one knows for sure what the next move of Kawhi Leonard is. The latest news with Drake has only made for more news fodder and jokes online.
There are some outlets even comparing this current situation of Drake with his former lover Rihanna. The jokes are flying that Drake ran off RiRi and he may end up doing the same with Kawhi jumping ship by doing too much to keep him in the city of Toronto.
