Over the weekend Kawhi Leonard stunned the NBA world when he signed with the LA Clippers after recruiting Paul George and asking him to request a trade from the OKC Thunder.
At the time Leonard was expected to sign a 4-year max contract worth $141 million.
Today, Kawhi threw another curveball and surprised the NBA community when he decided to sign a short-term contract with the team.
The deal not only gives Kawhi the flexibility to leave the Clippers after two years but it also allows him to sign the veteran max.
It’s still pretty stunning how shrewd Kawhi has been during this entire free agency period but it seems like he’s been making all the smart moves.
