If you add Kawhi and another All-Star calibre player, the Western Conference will have another powerhouse team. Many people expected Kawhi Leonard to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers this summer and it is appearing that it is not as surefire as some thought.
Raptors being on the top of that list shouldn't be too shocking since they are coming off a title win over the Warriors and Kawhi basically has an entire country behind him. He delivered one of the strongest playoff performances in recent memory, putting the Raptors on his back at times en route to their first championship.
"You make mistakes when you do things for the first time", he said.
That's especially the case if a new contract with the Raptors includes a player option after next season, allowing Leonard the chance to opt out and return to free agency next summer, Stein reported. Gasol has a player option for next season and Green is an unrestricted free agent.
By his own admission, Masai Ujiri was dripping a different kind of sweat when he met with the media on Tuesday than the sort saturating his forehead when he sat in front of them nearly one year ago.

Carroll said the incident happened when the two met by chance at the upscale department store Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell interviewed Carroll on Friday and noted that NY does not have a statute of limitations for rape.
If Trump gets wind of Green's comments, which we'll bet that he does, expect the Raptors to get the cold shoulder from the president.
"I think our team is always very well-prepared, that we would be able to deal with whatever comes our way", Ujiri said. "I know we'll be in touch with them. Man I think of the growth of that kid and even my relationship with him and where he got to". "For us, there is that trust regardless of wherever it goes".
Masai Ujiri confirmed he plans on remaining with the Toronto Raptors. None of those other guys mentioned are going to be able to compete in the super team-filled National Basketball Association, especially with LeBron James and Anthony Davis now teaming up on the Lakers.
"I think they know what the effect of Kawhi's decision is, but we're really approaching it like we want to bring everybody back on this team, " Ujiri said. "We will respect his decision".
One day before the Raptors opened the 2019 postseason against the Orlando Magic, it was announced that Anunoby had undergone an emergency appendectomy that would sideline him for at least two weeks. "I still think about that".
