Kawhi Leonard had reportedly given a list of requests to the Los Angeles Lakers through his uncle Dennis Robertson, while the two sides were in talks last summer.

However, the requests were clearly illegal and thus were denied by the Lakers governor Jeanie Buss.

Per Tyler Conway of Bleacher Report:

Sam Amick of The Athletic reported Robertson wanted Leonard to receive a partial ownership share, private plane access, a house and a guaranteed amount of endorsement money to secure his commitment. All of those requests would have violated the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement and were thus denied by Lakers governor Jeanie Buss.”

“The report says Robertson requested a similar bounty when meeting with the Toronto Raptors.”
