That he’s willing to go to a baseball game and not support his team during the playoffs. Meaning he’s not happy with the spurs— Phil Garling (@PhilGarling) May 11, 2018
Leonard is from Southern California and the Lakers and Clippers have been rumored to be trade partners with the Spurs if Leonard and the organization can not mend fences.
ESPN’s Chris B. Haynes reported on May 1 that Leonard and an advisor were in San Antonio after he spent nearly six weeks in New York rehabbing his quadriceps injury which kept him sidelined for most of the season.
Leonard has not been seen around the team since March, and did not attend any of the Spurs playoff games this season.
Reports after the season indicated he and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich would meet some time this summer.
Leonard is eligible for the supermax contract extension worth $219 million over five years.
It’s important to note Leonard is under contract with San Antonio through next season, but this latest video will only fuel more speculation about Leonard’s future with the Spurs.
