This Sunday at 6 pm NBA Free Agency officially begins. Kawhi Leonard is the man who a lot of people expect to sign the biggest contract this offseason because of the injury Kevin Durant suffered in the playoffs.
The one thing we can all agree with is that we have no idea where Kawhi is going to sign this summer. So, here are the best landing spots for Kawhi Leonard.
People might not think this but the Philadelphia 76ers have a good chance to sign Kawhi Leonard this offseason. If Kawhi signs with the 76ers they will be the favorites to win the NBA title. A “big 3” of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Kawhi Leonard. They will have shot to be one of the best big three’s of all time. Kawhi on the 76ers can be the most dangerous situation for the NBA because no team might be able to beat that big 3 unless Kevin Durant resigns with the Golden State Warriors.
4. Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets are also one of the biggest sleepers in these sweepstakes because everyone thinks the Nets are gonna go all in on Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. But if the Nets can pair Kawhi Leonard with one of these other stars they would be a way better team than Kyrie and KD. Kawhi and Kyrie or Kawhi and KD. The Nets should really think about going all in on Kawhi and another star so they can take New York away from the Knicks.
3. Dallas Mavericks
I really do believe the Dallas Mavericks have great shot to sign Kawhi Leonard. The Mavericks have a really nice team with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis that could be very appealing to Kawhi. Plus, to me the biggest reason why he would sign with the Mavericks is for him to stick it to the San Antonio Spurs. I’m pretty sure Kawhi wants to show the Spurs is that he did not care about what market he is in, he just wanted out of that team. Like people say revenge is best served cold, the best way to serve revenge to the Spurs is by winning a title with the Dallas Mavericks.
2. Toronto Raptors
If I was Kawhi Leonard I would stay and sign an extension with the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors proved their supporting cast fits perfectly for Kawhi. They did win a championship for a reason. They have size, speed and shooting. The medical staff let Kawhi choose what nights he sits out so he is feels fresh enough for the playoffs. The Raptors did everything to make sure Kawhi feels comfortable knowing that he might leave this offseason.
Plus, Kawhi is now the King of the North. He can get anything he wants in Canada, Kawhi will not worry about anything for the rest of his life if he chooses to stay with the Toronto Raptors.
1.Los Angeles Clippers
The best fit for Kawhi leonard is the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers are the best fit for Kawhi because they have the really good team,good coach, and great ownership. The Clippers took a healthy Warriors team to six games, that is incredibly hard because the Clippers did not a have superstar on their team. If you add Kawhi Leonard to that team, they will win NBA Championship next year.
Another reason why the Los Angeles Clippers are the best fit for Kawhi, is that they are in Los Angeles. Kawhi has express that he would love to play in LA because that is where he is from. He can be close to his family without a problem. If you can stay home and still play on a good team that can win an NBA title wouldn’t you take deal.
