Kawhi Leonard might a minimum of take into account the Los Angeles Lakers in spite of everything.

Showing on ESPN’s First Take, Lakers Corridor of Famer and former Staff President, Magic Johnson detailed the behind the scenes of this previous season.

Johnson additionally detailed that the Lakers’ two high targets this summer season are Toronto Raptors ahead Kawhi Leonard and Boston Celtics level guard Kyrie Irving.

Johnson additionally conceded that the Lakers would solely be including both Leonard or Irving, because the staff will solely have sufficient cap room to signal one free agent to a max contract.

That ties into my report earlier in the present day by way of Basketball Society On-line which particulars the Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard narrative.

It additionally discusses Kevin Durant.

Many imagine that the New York Knicks are going to dive head first into buying the free-agent to be on this summer season’s NBA free company sweepstakes.

Will he come to NYC???

“The Knicks are quietly, I imagine, turning into engaging,” FS1’s Jason McIntyre instructed me on the Scoop B Radio Podcast earlier this 12 months.

“The Knicks. Now pay attention, Zion’s going to be engaging to folks. Once more, I don’t suppose he’s going to be like the perfect participant within the league proper out the gate, proper? He’s going to promote plenty of tickets, he’s unselfish, I truly suppose R.J. Barrett would be the primary choose, I feel he’s a extra full offensive participant. I don’t suppose Zion could possibly be a primary within the NBA on a championship contender. I like Zion quite a bit, however I do marvel, are the Knicks engaging?”

Durant has been out for a while with a strained calf. Extra particularly, Durant’s been out 4 video games with the calf pressure that he suffered throughout Spherical 2 of the Warriors’ NBA Playoffs matchup in opposition to the Houston Rockets.

Per Heavy’s Jeff Smith: It’s believed {that a} strained calf might maintain a participant out for roughly six weeks.

If that proved true on this case, even when factoring in that Warriors coach, Steve Kerr stated the damage was worse than initially thought, it will arrange a return round June 12.

Clearly, that timeline may be modified, but when that have been the case, it will imply Durant wouldn’t be again on the ground till a potential Sport 6 of the NBA Finals.

The Los Angeles Lakers have the fourth choose in subsequent month’s NBA Draft. They’ll even be trying to make key strikes within the NBA offseason.

The Lakers purposely stuffed their roster with one-year contracts to take care of their wage cap flexibility for the summer season of 2019 the place a number of NBA superstars like Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, DeMarcus Cousins, and DeAndre Jordan are anticipated to turn out to be unrestricted free brokers.

On the Kawhi Leonard facet of issues: NBA Insider, Ric Bucher instructed the Scoop B Radio Podcast that Kawhi Leonard will depart the Toronto Raptors even when Toronto wins an NBA Championship.

The place will he go? Bucher hinted to not depend out the Los Angeles Clippers.

I”f he’s wanting on the Clippers, and I might suppose that, I imply if he leaves, my expectation is solely that’s the place he’d go,” Bucher instructed Scoop B Radio.

“He’s these bombers and he’s a staff that from the get go can be constructed round him and he’s going to be the place he desires to be and he’s going to be the centerpiece”
