Kawhi Leonard has reportedly cooled on the idea of joining the Los Angeles Lakers.

Appearing on the Back to Back podcast on the Count The Dings Network on Thursday, ESPN.com’s Michael C. Wright indicated Leonard is now focusing on trying to land with the Los Angeles Clippers in the aftermath of LeBron James’ commitment to the Lakers.

“The Lakers are not Kawhi’s preferred destination anymore,” Wright said. “He wants to go to the Clippers. Because he doesn’t want to go and be second fiddle to LeBron. That’s what I was told. I was told by somebody that would know. So right now the Clippers are where he wants to go.

“But I’m also told—I talked to people within the Spurs organization—and they’re like, ‘Yeah he wants to go to the Clippers, but their assets are s–t at this point.'”
