Report: Kawhi Leonard signs three-year, $103M deal with Clippers, but can opt out sooner

Yahoo Sports

Los Angeles Clippers fans will get to enjoy Kawhi Leonard for at least the next two seasons. Leonard signed a three-year, $103 million deal with the club Wednesday, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

That deal, however, only contains two guaranteed seasons. Leonard has a player option for the third year, so he could once again hit the free-agent market following the 2021 season if he chooses.

Interestingly, that would make him a free agent at the same time as Paul George, who the Clippers just acquired via trade.

After taking a few days to consider his options, Leonard shocked many NBA fans and decided to sign with the Clippers. He did this after bringing a championship to the Toronto Raptors in his only season with the team.

Last year, the 28-year-old Leonard averaged 26.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game with Toronto.
