The city of Toronto finally found its way to the NBA Championship led by Kawhi Leonard. His contract for the team was only for one season. This has made Leonard one of the biggest free agents on the market this summer. Leonard is from Los Angeles and the Clippers becoming his new team has been on the minds of those from his hometown. The Raptors also have their fans wanted him to remain on the team especially since he helped to assist in getting a championship-winning season with them. Jimmy Butler is one of the other free agents who will be available this Summer and based on a new report from Sam Amick of The Athletic, Kawhi might be interested in joining forces with the Sixers star.
Per The Athletic:
“There are many scenarios seemingly in play, but sources say one in particular looks increasingly possible: [Jimmy] Butler teaming up with Leonard on the Clippers. There are strong indications that Leonard is interested in having Butler as a running mate, and it’s the sort of powerful pairing that would certainly vault the Clippers into contention.”
This rumor flies in the face of those who believe Kawhi Leonard will remain apart of the Raptors franchise.
