Because if he doesn't, Lakers boss Magic Johnson certainly will. But the Nets' reserved general manager sounded unusually bullish on 2019. Without a physical, it's tough to gauge whether Leonard is healthy enough to play now, or if he's over the issue that cost him 73 games last season.
Leonard appeared in only nine games for the Spurs last season because of a somewhat mysterious right leg injury - and the level of severity was something that even some of his now-former teammates reportedly questioned last season while San Antonio was trying to qualify for the Western Conference playoffs. "Sell you out quick for a little bit of nothing", he wrote. "We have a year to prepare for summer of 2019". In 2020, the pick would become two second-round picks instead of a first-rounder.
Granted, to land two max players they'd have to deal Allen Crabbe or let D'Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson go. In any case, I thought I should pass it along, as Leonard has very few known associates and one of them just arrived in the city.
"The sky's the limit to the expectations a year from now", said Marks.

"Kawhi obviously worked very hard to become the player he is and our staff worked very hard to help him get there and we wish him all the best as he moves on to Toronto". And Arthur suggested the Lakers aren't his only landing spot, but Brooklyn could well be on that shortlist.
From a basketball standpoint, Leonard will join a Raptors team that has been building a winning culture on a consistent basis and is better than the Lakers, even with LeBron there now, Setlur said.
Leonard picked Dr. Jonathan Glashow, an orthopedic specialist at Mount Sinai Medical Center for his surgery. Someone I've respected and watched play for awhile now.
Gilbert Ngabo is a breaking news reporter based in Toronto. DeRozan will nearly certainly give San Antonio more next year than Leonard gave the Spurs last year. In the pre-draft process in 2014, Thames mentioned that he spoke with Leonard leading up to the draft, calling him "one of my good friends" and joking "We both kind of have the same personality but he's way more quieter than me".More news: Tesla investors demand Elon Musk apologize for calling Thailand diver 'pedo'
