Kawhi’s Uncle Asked for Improper Benefits During Nephew’s Free Agency

While Kawhi Leonard and everyone else have already moved on from his free agency saga, more and more sketchy information continues to come out of the process.

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the NBA carried out an investigation on the Los Angeles Clippers last offseason, focusing on complaints that Leonard’s uncle, Dennis Robertson, asked for improper benefits during his nephew’s free agency period. The NBA has reportedly found no evidence of any such behaviour.

That being said, sources close to the situation claim that Robertson asked for part ownership of the Los Angeles Lakers, access to a private plane, a house, and a guarantee amount of off-court endorsement money in a phone call with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss. This information made the Lakers assume that they were being used for leverage to force the Clippers to provide Leonard with everything he desires. According to sources, Robertson attempted to play the same trick on the Toronto Raptors.

In an effort to limit tampering, the NBA has since enforced its fines for any offences.

“This is because of Dennis. He didn’t know the rules,” said one agent.

The Finals MVP ultimately opted against re-signing with the reigning NBA champions and signed a three-year, $103-million deal with the Clippers in July.
