Report: Kawhi Leonard doesn’t want to join LeBron on the Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a bit of a tailspin. LeBron James is on a minutes restriction, and they’ve got deeper issues than just what’s happened this season.

Meanwhile the roster in LA has been built with the idea of getting multiple superstars this offseason to help James. That’s not exactly a shoo-in either, particularly after trade talks for Anthony Davis fell apart earlier this year.


Los Angeles has been a rumored landing spot for Toronto Raptors free agent Kawhi Leonard, although reports have said Leonard prefers the Clippers in the past. As the year has ground on up north, it seems the Lakers’ chances at signing Leonard have become increasingly dim.

Speaking on Brian Windhorst’s podcast, ESPN writer Michael C. Wright said that what he’s hearing is that Leonard is not interested in the Lakers.

Via ESPN:

“I do not [think he’s interested in the Lakers]. That’s just what I’ve been told. It’s what I’ve been told going back to last summer. I don’t see that as something that’s happening. I think he goes to the Clippers.”

Toronto doesn’t look like the strongest team in the East, and an NBA Finals run was what most thought could keep him with the Raptors. If Leonard decides to change teams this summer, it seems like the rumor continues to be that he won’t be picking to join LeBron on the Lakers.

We already knew this. Just like Paul George didn't want to play with LeBron and stayed in OKC even though forcing himself out of IND was solely to get to LA.

KD wasn't lying. Only Kyrie and AD seemingly want to play with dude right now.
PG didnt even know that Lebron was going to the Lakers but ill let you tell it.

Until Kawhi says this, this is fake news

You think Kawhi... KAWHI LEONARD...wants to be around all that drama? LeBron should've just cooled on forcing Magic to start swapping pieces until the season was over. Who would want to come aboard when you got a divided locker room cause of one nikka?
