Windhorst: Lakers Have Some Real Traction Toward Kawhi Leonard

DMT.NEWS #sports

The Los Angeles Lakers have appeared to gain ground in their pursuit of Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard initially requested a trade to the Lakers last offseason, but it has appeared as though the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers became the favorites over the past 12 months.

"We don't know where Kawhi is going," said Brian Windhorst. "I am feeling more like the Lakers are a chance. I wouldn't have thought that was a chance. I thought it was Clippers for a long time and then I thought maybe he'll stay in Toronto. I do believe there is some real traction towards the Lakers. I still think the Clippers are the pick, but I admit I don't know at this point."

"I'm in total agreement with you, Brian," said Jackie MacMullan. "Clearly, there's too much smoke for there not to be a little bit of fire here."

Leonard met with Magic Johnson on Sunday.

There had been speculation in the media that Leonard wouldn't want to play with LeBron James.
