Raptors Fans Are Convinced Kawhi Leonard Accepted Free Trip To Bardados Made By Tourism Company If He Re-Signed With Team


Kawhi Leonard is a pretty thrifty guy.

Back when he was with the Spurs it was reported that Kawhi once panicked because he had lost some free coupons to eat at Wingstop.

He is happy to sponsor Wingstop, which sends him coupons for free wings, so he can feed his Mango Habanero addiction. This winter, after his $94 million contract kicked in, he panicked when he lost his coupons. Wingstop generously replenished his supply.

Kawhi is currently in Barbados on vacation with his girlfriend and from the looks of things he’s having a pretty good time.

NBA fans are convinced that Kawhi had cashed in on a free trip to Barbados offered to him by a travel company if he decided to re-sign with Toronto.

Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BMTI) has offered a complimentary trip to Barbados should he extend his contract In partnership with luxury Port Ferdinand Marina and Luxury Residences, BTMI will offer Leonard return flights strictly from Toronto and indulgent accommodations at the world-class destination resort.

We have been intrigued by the energy and feel-good factor generated by the Raptors this season – culminating in their ascent to the ongoing NBA Finals,” remarked Peter Mayers, Director of BTMI in Canada. “We couldn’t think of a better way to share Barbados’ love for Toronto and the entire country. Kawhi truly deserves the Barbados experience and we look forward to welcoming him post-season.”

We’ll have to wait until Sunday or Monday to see if the free trip worked in keeping Kawhi in Toronto.
