Toronto Raptors have Kawhi Leonard's trust over Los Angeles Lakers, Clippers

Earlier Friday, Cris Carter of Fox Sports 1 believes Leonard will make his announcement on Friday and Carter is leaning towards the Los Angeles Lakers over the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers. Green followed the superstar to Toronto when they were both traded away for DeMar DeRozan.

As of this report, nothing is official, as Jalen Rose's comments regarding Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors are what he's heard from others.

The Los Angeles Clippers are one of the three teams that are still in the running for Kawhi Leonard, who still has not made his free agency decision almost a week into the process. Paul George did not take a meeting: stayed in Oklahoma City.

The Lakers can offer Leonard the opportunity to form one of the greatest (if not the greatest) trios in the history of basketball and essentially a free ticket to the NBA Finals. But on the flip side of that, there has been talk that Leonard did what he was supposed to do - deliver a championship - and now it's time to go home.

For fans of the Lakers, Clippers and Raptors it's a tough report to swallow.

There were also those who felt that Drake enticing Kawhi to stay in Toronto is "God's Plan".

It's unknown if the rapper has had contact with Leonard during free agency, but it's obvious that he's incredibly fond of the former Raptors star.

Leonard averaged 30.5 points and 9.1 rebounds in the 24 playoff games with the Raptors this past season. In a subsequent trip to the Bahamas, he was snapped wearing a Jays jersey.

The Atlanta Hawks are one of the few teams that can give Cousins the type of deal he's been looking for, though the two are an unlikely fit.

"Our organization feels confident".

"The uncle's questions were, 'what's really going on in the organisation between you, Jeanie (Buss), Rob Pelinka, everyone? He's shown that since he came here", Ujiri said. The Lakers and Clippers can only offer four years at about US$140 million.
