Summer Forecast: Where will KD, Kawhi, Kyrie play in 2019-20?

Where will Kawhi Leonard start the 2019-20 season?

TEAM/% OF VOTES
Los Angeles Lakers/57.6
Toronto Raptors/27.3
LA Clippers/15.1

The Lakers weren’t able to swing a trade for the former Finals MVP this summer, but the majority of our panel still thinks Leonard will be wearing purple and gold in 2019-20.
Leonard has reportedly stated his preference for playing in Los Angeles, making James’ new squad the front-runners for when Leonard becomes a free agent next summer. Their Staples Center neighbors, the Clippers, also received votes, finishing just behind Toronto, the team that was able to eventually pry Leonard out of San Antonio.

Because of the Lakers’ use of one-year contracts this offseason, they will almost certainly have the cap space necessary to lure Leonard back over the border in 2019. — Reisinger
