    Kawhi Leonard SERIOUSLY Considering Leaving Clippers To Join Jimmy Butler & Bam Adebayo In Miami - YouTube

    The Miami Heat may have recently reloaded by trading for former All-Star guard Victor Oladipo, but there is a chance they may become even stronger next season.

    An NBA agent told NBA Analysis Network that Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard could “have interest in” teaming up with Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler.

    “Kawhi could very well listen to pitches from other teams,” the agent said. “That is something that he is considering. If that does end up being the case, he would be intrigued at the possibility of joining the Miami Heat. Joining forces with Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo is something that he would absolutely have interest in.”

    Leonard signed as a free agent with the Clippers prior to last season a month after leading the Toronto Raptors to the NBA championship.

    Thus far, his Clippers tenure has been a disappointment. Despite being favored to win in all, the team choked away a 3-1 series lead to the Denver Nuggets in last year’s Western Conference semifinals.

    This season, the Clippers have one of the NBA’s most efficient offenses, but their defense is still a concern.

    Leonard could become a free agent at the conclusion of this season. If the Clippers fail to win the championship or at least reach the NBA Finals, it seems plausible that he may at least consider jumping ship and heading to greener pastures.

    There's quite a disconnect between headline and badly written clickbait article.

    Am I reading UK tabloid football transfer gossip **** here?

    This is the most legit rumor of all time. Not only is it worthy of a thread, but Clutch should create a subforum just for this topic.

    • MIA has some space for a superstar.
    • Stacks a team.
    • It's the east; still less competition (despite top heavy)
    • All star votes
      • may not get in as an all-star starter in the east (Embid / Durant / Giannis), but I don't think he cares.

    Or could be just his agent driving up the price for negotiation; since 1 more year left on the Clippers contract.

    Does Riley load management tho?

    No more Competition
    Most Stars are injured
    3 Stars are on 1 Team
    Mid Market and Small Market Teams are Irrelevant for Adam Silver

    = Bad NBA Ratings will continue

    Honestly want LeBron James gone, He is the One that Started the whole Superteam, Kevin Durant followed the Warriors.

    Easy Rings ever since. Fans have lost Respect to the Players and Adam Silver Rigged Playoffs with Crooked Referees, it is funny they have Female Referees to repair its image but the Female Referees never work in the Playoffs Deep on the WCF or Finals Series. Adam needs Veteran Referees to Rig it easier.

    I could see this happening Kawhi don't give a **** and once Playoff P flames out again there is no way he wants to stay.

    This would be glorious.

    Best part of the article was when it said Miami had recently reloaded by adding former All star guard Victor Oladipo.

    lol

    Breaking: kawhi, Lebron, harden, Durant, Davis and Embiid have all decided they want to play together. They will all load manage, whine or wear fat suits until it happens.

    Adam Silver honestly is letting Superteams happen.

    To me it sends bad message to send about the Small Market Teams Cant Win a Championship.

    New Orleans Pelicans couldnt keep Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday

    Most Likely Zion Williamson will leave,
    Karl Anthony Towns might get traded.
    Maybe Luka Doncic later on.

    To me there should 8 Teams in the NBA

    Los Angeles Lakers
    Los Angeles Clippers
    Miami Heat
    Boston Celtics
    Golden State Warriors
    New York Knicks
    Brooklyn Nets

    Seattle Supersonics - Money Maker

    That is it.

    Every other Team is a Small Market, Irrevelevant Franchise.

    Kawhi has 0 loyalty so who would be surprised?

    If he were loyal he'd be re-signed, he's not because he wants to wait and see what the Clippers do this post season and if it's a 2nd round exit then it will be a Kawhi exit as well. Miami makes sense along with a few other places.
