Kawhi Leonard Rolling to the Beat of His Own Drum, Waiting Till July
Name me a more wild start to a free agency period than this NBA offseason.
Take your time, I’ll be patient.
As Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving move to the Brooklyn Nets, Jimmy Butler signs with the Miami Heat, and Tobias Harris and Al Horford ink deals with the Philadelphia 76ers, one superstar remains awfully quiet with free agency officially underway.
Kawhi Leonard seems to be down to three teams – two if you don’t buy into the Los Angeles Lakers rumours.
Kawhi Leonard will not take any meetings with teams today, as he'll ramp up the process over next couple days, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

As his peers sign massive contracts on the first day of Free Agency, Leonard has chosen to wait until July to begin taking his future seriously. While there have been reports that Leonard and his Uncle Dennis have spoken to Magic Johnson over the phone, Leonard is reportedly not looking too meet with teams until tomorrow, therein holding Hollywood and an entire country on the edge of their seats.
The Los Angeles Clippers and the Toronto Raptors seem to be poised to duke it out for the services of the superstar forward.
Fresh of an NBA championship victory, the Finals MVP rolls to the beat of his own drum and is expected to make his final decision within the week.
