Raptors' Nurse on Kawhi Leonard: 'He played his heart out for us'

Open this

After a daring trade, a few close-calls and an National Basketball Association championship trophy it looks like Toronto is going to say goodbye to Kawhi Leonard who, according to multiple reports, is set on signing with the Los Angeles Clippers.

That fear already gave the Thunder the upper hand in a situation where they could have been in trouble with George wanting to leave Russell Westbrook over Leonard - though George indicated he has no issues with Westbrook.

The most the Clippers can offer Leonard is $142 million over four years, which is the deal he is expected to sign. That's on top of adding shooting guard Danny Green within minutes of the news of the Leonard move.

Teams can sign contracts with players beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday. The Los Angeles Clippers won the race to get Kawhi Leonard's signature, convincing the free agent forward to join their team on a four-year max contract. Now hitting the wrong side of 30, building your team around two 30-year-old players doesn't seem like the best way to go here.

The coffee chain Alfred Coffee, which has nine California locations according to its website, issued a message for LA's two newest stars and their teammates on its Instagram on Monday following the news that the duo were forming a super-squad with the Clippers.

It looked as though the Warriors would dominate again when they signed DeMarcus Cousins to a one-year deal in the last offseason, despite the center being sidelined by an Achilles injury. He earned the league's most improved award after a breakout regular season, then found another gear in the playoffs, averaging 19 points and 7.1 rebounds, and on many nights was the second scoring option behind Leonard.

The coffee shop must have been buying into the buzz that Leonard was eyeing a Purple and Gold team-up with LeBron James and Anthony Davis with the Lakers.

They'll have to defend the title without him.

But Lutz said his heart has softened in the time since the news came out.

That sentiment was echoed by Manuel Lutz, who would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night to watch the Raptors play from his home in southern Germany. "I'm not trying to make headlines".

And he may be about to make the Clippers contenders as well.
