Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Star taking his time ‘before deciding the next move’

Kawhi Leonard’s free agency decision may not come for a few more days.

The star and his representatives “are going through the process and taking their time before deciding the next move,” according to a report from The Athletic. Leonard is considering the Lakers, Clippers and returning to the Raptors, according to multiple reports.

The Lakers believe they’re “firmly in the lead” to land the star because of the “recruiting efforts and assurances made on separate fronts” by former president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and LeBron James, according to an earlier report from the New York Times.

Rapper and Raptors fan Drake “is said to be mounting his own recruiting campaign on top of whatever the freshly minted champions are doing” to convince Leonard to stay, the Times’ report says.

Leonard was sent from the Spurs to Toronto in a blockbuster trade last summer and he almost single-handedly carried the team to its first title in franchise history.

Leonard averaged 30.5 points in the playoffs, was named the Finals MVP and helped the Raptors avoid elimination by knocking down a crazy bouncing buzzer beater in the fourth quarter of Game 7 against the 76ers in the second round.

Leonard is the biggest free agent remaining on the market.
