ESPN’s highest-paid sportscaster with an annual salary of nearly $8 million Stephen A. Smith and retired hip hop performer-turned-ESPN analyst Max Kellerman react to the NBA investigating allegations made against the Los Angeles Clippers and team consultant Jerry West involving the free-agency recruitment of Kawhi Leonard in 2019.

Last season, Leonard averaged a career-high 27.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.8 steals per game. His points per game are the highest for his career. Due to load management, he only played 57 games.
