Toronto Raptors Persuade Kawhi Leonard To Re-sign Contract After Relocating Franchise To L.A.

TORONTO — According to early reports, Kawhi Leonard has reached to an agreement to stay with the Toronto Raptors. The NBA Finals MVP plans to sign a five-year, $190 million contract once free agency begins on Sunday. Leonard was offered league-max deals from both the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers to play in his hometown. In a desperate move, the Raptors offered a deal he couldn’t refuse: relocation of the franchise to Los Angeles. “We also offered him a minority stake in the team and three Hawaiian islands,” said Raptors GM Masai Ujiri. “Hell, we’ll even trade off Drake for Kendrick Lamar.” Toronto fans won’t have to worry about missing the reigning NBA Champions in action. The Raptors will play one exhibition game at the Scotiabank Arena.
