The Los Angeles Lakers could pursue Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the 2021 offseason, per Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

As Shelburne said, via Ralph Mason, the targets of the Lakers in the summer of 2021 are expected to be Leonard, George and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

“According to Ramona Shelburne, Giannis isn’t the only free agent Lakers have their eye on next offseason, she brings up Kawhi and PG. According to her, this is the reason for AD hasn’t decided his contract length,” Mason reports.

Leonard and George can opt out of their contracts with the Los Angeles Clippers at the end of the 2020/21 season and become free agents, via Lakers Daily.

For his part, Antetokounmpo will be a free agent only if he declines his supermax contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks, which he can sign until December 22.

At the same time, the Lakers are expected to reach an agreement with Anthony Davis for a new contract in the coming days, yet its length remains unknown for the time being.
