Kawhi Leonard, Paul George Banned From LA Coffee Chain

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard takes a selfie holding his playoffs MVP trophy as he celebrates during the 2019 Toronto Raptors Championship parade in Toronto on Monday, June 17, 2019.

Biggest among the players the Lakers added Saturday is center DeMarcus Cousins, with whom the team agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million deal, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The most the Clippers can offer Leonard is $142 million over four years, which is the deal he is expected to sign.

The Raps are reportedly set to lose Danny Green also. "It shouldn't tarnish his legacy because he did the one thing no one else really could and that was to lead us to a championship - So I think he should be remembered fondly".

Teams can sign contracts with players beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday. Specifically, he praised the medical staff's work in helping the 28-year-old recuperate from the quad injury that limited him to just nine games with the San Antonio Spurs in 2017-18. That's when he told the Clippers that he wanted to play with Paul George, the Oklahoma City Thunder star and SoCal native.

The deals were widely reported late Friday, although no official confirmation was provided by the players or teams involved.

But as Leonard's camp made escalating demands, the Raptors began to believe that his focus was on Los Angeles.

The Toronto Raptors won their first NBA title in franchise history with a 114-110 win in Game 6 of the NBA Finals over the Golden State Warriors.

The three will join forces with LeBron James on a Lakers team that will barely resemble last season's squad, who failed to meet expectations in the three-time National Basketball Association champion's first season in the purple and gold.

They'll have to defend the title without him.

Nurse's comments came in the first interviews by a member of the Raptors after the Leonard news came out.

The Raptors will slip in the Eastern Conference, perhaps behind the Celtics, who are likely a fourth or fifth seed with their current roster.

And he may be about to make the Clippers contenders as well.
