Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Superstar to meet with both Lakers, Clippers

Leonard led the Raptors to the title in his first season with the team. Another player to keep an eye on is Kawhi Leonard.

There was a lot to unpack from Masai Ujiri's end-of-season press conference on Tuesday morning. The Toronto Raptors, however, must quickly pivot toward winning another one in 12 months' time.

Leonard's not going to tip his hand as to his decision, but teaming up with Butler certainly seems like an intriguing option. "This team, that's a priority for us, how we can run it back and I think they know that and we've had good communication towards that", Ujiri said.

"I am confident about who I am as a person, my character and as a human being", Ujiri said. "The tough thing is, when you're an athlete and you're hurt, everybody is looking at you sideways", Iguodala said.

One person staying put with the Raptors is Ujiri.

National Basketball Association free agency is set to begin on Sunday at 6 p.m. E.T. In the same report, Haynes states that Leonard is "seriously considering re-signing with the Raptors", but he still has other meetings lined up.

-A former Sacramento Kings executive will spend seven years in prison for stealing $13.4 million from the team.

De Blasio is set to have a rally Thursday at the American Airlines departures door at Miami International Airport. Many on strike are Cuban btw", Florida state Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez wrote in a Twitter post.

But it's worth pointing out that no team can offer him as much money as the Raptors can on a max deal.

Kawhi Leonard will have a number of suitors in free agency. Some around the league believe Leonard has already made up his mind about where he'll play next season.

"I don't think the White House is going to be judged by whether we come or not or if we are going to be judged whether we go or not", he said.

"I think he had a great experience here".

Since the Raptors' championship parade wrapped last Monday, fans have watching for any clue about which way Leonard is leaning.

It was part of a significant retooling in the wake of another early playoff exit. First of all, the Raptors now have at least one more year of contention with this roster as Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, and Marc Gasol's contracts all expire next season.
