The Lakers, Heat and Mavericks are among the favorites to sign Kawhi Leonard, if the latter decides to leave the Los Angeles Clippers.

Leonard has a player option for the 2021/22 season and is expected to opt out of it and become a free agent. Yet, the belief among the league is he will re-sign with the Clippers.

In case he doesn’t agree to a new contract with the Clippers, though, the Lakers, the Heat and the Mavericks are the betting favorites to land the NBA superstar.

Aside from the Lakers, several other teams, including the Knicks, the Warriors and the Raptors, are also candidates to sign Leonard in the offseason.
