CelebNSports247.com reports that uring an appearance on ESPN’s “Get Up” earlier today, Jalen Rose did the unthinkable.
Jalen Rose claimed he was 99 percent certain Kawhi Leonard would be re-signing with the Raptors.
This will be great news for anxious Raptors fans who have been lining up awaiting the news if they would be keeping or losing their star player. Let’s NOT forget Drake was planning a special something-something to get Leonard to stay.
In Toronto, Kawhi is loved like Steph Curry in Oakland, but is he correct?
TPS reported the news first stating:
As Rose states, should Kawhi sign a two-year deal with the Raptors, as an eight-year veteran, that would put him at 10 years when he hits free agency again in 2021, which would allow him to cash in big time — as free agents with 10-years experience can sign max contracts worth up to 35% of the salary cap, which is expected to be higher in 2021.
There have also been plenty of rumors circulating that the Lakers still believe they are the frontrunners for Kawhi.
Until he actually signs on the dotted line and makes an announcement, it’s anyone’s guess where the 2019 NBA Finals MVP will play next season.
