Kawhi Leonard capped off one other disappointing season with the Los Angeles Clippers final week by lacking his crew’s final three playoff outings.

L.A. was swiftly bounced from the proceedings by the Phoenix Suns, 4-1.

When Leonard first arrived in Los Angeles there was a ton of optimism about what he and Paul George would be capable of obtain. On paper, they seemed like a fierce duo.

Sadly, between nonstop accidents and off-the-court drama, the pair has but to do something of observe collectively. This yr was simply their most up-to-date failure.

This week, FOX Sports activities character Skip Bayless took to the air and instructed {that a} commerce could possibly be on the horizon.

“Now I’m instructed, Kawhi is likely to be prepared to contemplate shifting to a different group,” Bayless stated.

“He’s beneath contract with the Clippers at age 32 for $46. Subsequent yr, at age 33, he can have a participant choice. It’s potential he’ll demand a commerce forward of subsequent season or forward of subsequent season’s commerce deadline.

“Or would possibly he wait till after subsequent season when he can simply flat-out hit the open market?”

The issue with Leonard isn’t simply that he will get damage, it’s that he will get damage in essentially the most dramatic means conceivable. Whereas when George will get injured it’s in a really commonplace NBA means, Leonard’s illnesses all the time include a number of points.

Specifically, Leonard likes to nurse his accidents longer than his groups usually really feel is critical – which ends up in contentious forwards and backwards arguments on his return time and the way his points should be managed. It has occurred repeatedly – with a number of franchises.

It’s a large number. Plus, along with that commonplace fare with him, Leonard was additionally mired in different controversy this season, like his sister’s authorized woes and her ultimately getting sentenced to life in jail with out the potential for parole.

In response to leaked reviews, the Clippers have been a catastrophe this season. Leonard battled the group, Ty Lue was hated – it was ugly throughout.

It’s onerous to see how the state of affairs will get fastened with out a main transfer.

And the largest return L.A. may presumably command proper now would doubtless contain their finest participant being dealt.

Will the Clippers genuinely give some consideration to buying and selling Leonard earlier than he can depart them on his personal? A solution by some means will emerge quickly sufficient.
