So the Thunder and Clippers began talking trade, with both sides recognizing that acquiring George meant also securing Kawhi.

Leonard has won two championships, two Finals MVPs, two Defensive Player of the Year honors, and has been selected to the All-NBA teams multiple times.

"New adventure in OKC", Gallinari tweeted. In fact, Om said he's already ordered a Clippers jersey with Leonard's name on the back. Now hitting the wrong side of 30, building your team around two 30-year-old players doesn't seem like the best way to go here.

As three teams recruited Leonard, he was recruiting Paul George.

The talks between Oklahoma City and Toronto led to further fear on the part of the Clippers, allowing Presti to demand more for George, thus putting the Thunder in the position they are in now.

Leonard agreed a four-year, $142 million maximum contract with the Clippers even though the Finals MVP could have made more money by staying in Canada.

Do not be surprised if he averages close to 28 points, seven rebounds, and four assists.

The Lakers didn't wait long before starting to move on from their quest for Leonard. The coffee shops social media has since taken down all messages related to the post. "It's time for me to make my announcement". "I'm a Laker, man".

"I want to thank the Toronto Raptors for believing in me - a little scrawny kid from Cameroon", Siakam said when he received the award.

The above-forecast print lowered the odds of aggressive Fed rate cuts, sending the 10-year treasury yield back above 2%. The Australian dollar, which has been on an uptrend since June 18, slipped below 70 US cents to last trade at $0.6974.

But George wasn't Kawhi's first recruiting target.

Even President Donald Trump liked the move, tweeting early Saturday: "Great Coach, Great Guy!" and providing a link to a story noting Clippers coach Doc Rivers was a big victor landing Leonard and George.

Westbrook has had three consecutive seasons of averaging triple-doubles and was voted the NBA's MVP in the 2016-17 season.

The Raps are reportedly set to lose Danny Green also.

It delivered a title.

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.

In one of the most anticipated free agent moves in National Basketball Association history, star forward Kawhi Leonard will sign a four-year, $141 million contract with the Clippers, ESPN reported late Friday.

Despite finally pulling off the acquisition of Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans, the Lakers freed up enough cap space for a run at Leonard.
