Let the speculation begin.
Just a couple days after Kawhi Leonard led the Toronto Raptors to the franchise’s first-ever championship, family members have suggested that he is planning to leave the Raptors to bolt to Los Angeles.
On Saturday, Kawhi’s cousin took to Instagram Live when several users asked him if it was true that the Toronto Raptors forward was headed to Los Angeles when free agency opens in a couple more weeks.
“Kawhi on the way! Kawhi on the way!
This came just hours of the announcement of the blockbuster deal sending Anthony Davis to the Lakers in exchange for Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and three first round picks. There has been much speculation about what other moves the Lakers are prepared to make, with a number of players being suggested as other targets such as Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, etc.
Free agency is set to open on June 30th.
