Leonard meets with Lakers, Clippers; Raptors on deck

All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors to the first championship in franchise history..

Free agent All-Star Kawhi Leonard has concluded his meetings with the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers and still had plans to meet with the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday, according to Jordan Schultz of ESPN.

Leonard is the top remaining free agent on the market, coming off an NBA Finals MVP after winning the title with the Raptors. He reportedly could wait until the end of the week (or longer) to make a commitment on where he will sign.

“I’m told he is going to continue to take his time. … the teams who are involved are expecting that this could go even late into the week,” Wojnarowski said during an appearance on ESPN’s Get Up.

FOX Sports personality Cris Carter, who shares an agent with Leonard, said it would be a mistake to think that there is a frontrunner for Leonard at this point.

Either way, all three clubs are putting on a full-court press for Leonard, and that includes the incumbent Raptors.

“The Raptors haven’t backed off one centimeter and Drake is said to be mounting his own recruiting campaign on top of whatever the freshly minted champions are doing to convince him to stay,” Marc Stein of the New York Times reported.

Leonard averaged 26.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in 60 regular-season games with the Raptors.
