Rookie superstar for the Los Angeles Clippers, Kawhi Leonard has preferred to keep control by giving priority to a contract short-term !
Signed by the Los Angeles Clippers, Kawhi Leonard is thus engaged for three years and 103 million dollars. The last year is optional for the player. This means, therefore, that he could go as early as 2021. Having opted for a contract of this type, the MVP of the Finals 2019 binds his fate to Paul George until the end.
In fact, PG13 had signed a contract 136.9 million over four years with the Thunder in 2018. Season 2021-2022 is optional for the player. George can become a free agent in 2021… like Kawhi Leonard. Strategist, former player of the Spurs preferred not to take any risk ! In the light of what they have released for the establishment of the duo, the Clippers would no doubt have preferred that Leonard agrees on the duration.
