CM – Kawhi Leonard « might come » to Miami in the free agency, says Stephen A. Smith


Stephen A. Smith recently hinted on First Take that Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler have a pretty strong relationship. So strong, in fact, that Miami could be under the radar in the off-season as a potential landing spot for Leonard.

Stephen A. said that Kawhi and Jimmy’s relationship is « damn good ». Would that be enough to move Kawhi to Miami this summer? Nobody can tell.

Kawhi’s decisions regarding free action have been difficult to predict historically because virtually no one knows what concerns him. Two years ago he decided to go free with the Clippers while people speculated whether he would end up with the Clippers, Lakers, or Raptors until his decision.

Popular opinion is that he is happy in LA and will stay with the Clippers. This makes sense as this was his ideal landing site for a long time. This is because he grew up in LA and has a close connection with San Diego which is nearby.

Stephen A.’s comments seem a bit off the shelf and couldn’t mean anything. But if there is indeed a close relationship between Kawhi and Jimmy, that matters. When Kawhi joined the Clippers, he also orchestrated a move that enabled a friend of his, Paul George, to join him with the Clippers.

The current Clippers playoff run will undoubtedly also play a role in his decision. Kawhi has always appreciated winning in the past. If the Clippers flare up again in the playoffs this year, he can choose to leave. He is set to earn $ 36 million next year in what would be the final of his 3-year contract with the Clippers. But because this is a player option, he could turn it down this summer and have an unlimited hand.

The Clippers will play 1-0 against the Mavericks in Game 2 of their series on Tuesday evening. It’s up to them to come back and avoid another playoff disappointment. These recent comments from Stephen A. add excitement to an already heavily researched situation.
