The Spurs look forward to meeting with Kawhi Leonard and his representatives soon in a bid to mend fences and pave the way for Leonard to come to terms on a five-year $219 million supermax contract that he will be eligible to receive starting July 1st.
Kawhi played in just nine regular season games in the 2017-18 season despite receiving clearance from the Spurs’ medical staff to return from a quadriceps ailment. His decision to continue rehabbing away from the club under the supervision of his own medical team created a rift between him and the Spurs, as well as many of their fans. If attempts to patch up the relationship fail, the Spurs will be forced to explore trading their franchise player and plenty of suitors are expected to pursue him.
