Toronto radio host Greg Brady is hearing that Kawhi Leonard will decide whether or not he'll attend Team USA's minicamp by Monday.
Brady also guesses that Leonard won't go. He's not a typical newsbreaker but does have a few feathers in his cap, though mostly in other sports. It'd be a reversal of fortune after Leonard was reported to attend a few weeks ago, though that decision could've largely been to prove to other teams that he was healthy enough to play and expedite a trade out of San Antonio. With that already accomplished, Leonard may simply not want to go to Wednesday's minicap — run by his old coach Gregg Popovich. It's not like USA Basketball will need to see Leonard in that environment to deem him worthy of a roster spot when the time comes. With other rumors circulating that Kawhi won't meet with Toronto media until training camp, it wouldn't be shocking if he skipped camp and dodged the media circus that would be sure to follow.
