One of the best players that might be prospectively available to be signed as part of the 2021 free-agent class is Kawhi Leonard. The LA Clippers’ star man is widely expected to use the player option on his contract to re-sign. However, the NBA has seen far crazier moves in its history, with a number of teams expected to be willing to use their checkbooks generously considering the sheer pedigree of Kawhi Leonard.
He was unlucky with injuries during the 2021 NBA Playoffs and missed the entire Western Conference Series against the Phoenix Suns. Additionally, Leonard’s recent surgery to repair a partially torn ACL in his right knee also led to rumors about a potential switch for the two-time NBA champion in the coming offseason. Recent reports suggest that the Dallas Mavericks will be willing to go in for a move even if Kawhi Leonard is unavailable for the entirety of the 2021-22 NBA season.
Recent reports have suggested that the Dallas Mavericks will be interested in furnishing a similar deal with the LA Clippers, with Kristaps Porzingis an asset that might possibly move on. Regardless, a potential move does make sense considering the Mavericks have only recently signed Jason Kidd as their head-coach. The franchise will be looking to make a splash in the coming offseason and a potential duo of Leonard and Doncic is sure to send shockwaves throughout the league.
