These four meetings can be a lot of benefits for Kawhi Leonard. Like the Clippers, Knicks, Lakers can offer Leonard a four year $ 140 million deal, on the other hand, the Raptors are ready to offer him a five year and $190 million and the free agency will start on Sunday.
The Lakers strategy is to form a “Big Three” of the LeBron James, Davis and Leonard — or potentially James, Davis and Kyrie Irving
The Knicks have space for two max free agents and will also engage with Kevin Durant, via ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Durant, who may redshirt all of next season after Achilles’ surgery, is also considering the Warriors, Clippers, and Nets. For Knicks, a backup plan is also ready if they miss out the Leonard and Durant they also have a no.3 pick, R.J. Barrett.
“It doesn’t even matter to me, I just want to play,” Barrett said recently. “So whatever happens, happens. And if I play with a great player like KD or play with the guys on the team right now, I don’t even care.”
