Following the news that LeBron James has decided to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kawhi Leonard intends to leave the San Antonio Spurs and become James’ team-mate.

Leonard doesn’t want to play for San Antonio, as he thinks the team didn’t support him, after suffering an injury that sidelined him for almost the entire season.

The Spurs are planning to trade him and have been in talks with many Eastern Conference clubs, but Leonard is determined to join the LA Lakers and play alongside LeBron James, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of the ESPN.

That said, the Spurs’ reaction is highly anticipated.
