Raptors' Danny Green: Visit to White House Is a 'Hard No'

Raptors' Danny Green: Visit to White House Is a 'Hard No'

Although the Toronto Raptors' gamble last summer for superstar Kawhi Leonard resulted in an National Basketball Association championship, two of their Atlantic Division rivals believed his desire to eventually sign with the Los Angeles Clippers was simply too great to risk mortgaging their futures for him.

Leonard was drafted in 2011 and was the 2014 NBA Finals MVP with the San Antonio Spurs.

Now, just because Leonard is meeting with Dallas does not mean that the Mavs are near the top of his list, nor does it mean he is even seriously considering signing with them, but it's simply a good business decision to hear them out.

The Toronto Raptors will become the latest National Basketball Association championship team to decline a White House visit with President Donald Trump, according to star shooting guard Danny Green.

"If I was a golfer I'd be shooting about 120, if I was comparing my guitar playing to golf", he told TSN reporter Josh Lewenberg. National Basketball Association insider Peter Vescey reported in May that Lakers owner Jeanie Buss "believes she's going to get Kawhi". Depending on the situation, Los Angeles will have between $23.7-$32.5 million in cap space to pursue free agents.

An ally of Mr Hunt said: 'Bottler Boris and his complacent campaign have shown they can't trust their candidate to turn up and perform'.

After leading the Raptors to their first championship, it would make sense for Leonard to re-sign on a short-term deal as their core is under contract for at least the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.

The Clippers knew nothing of the billboards, according to ESPN.

It's possible that Leonard could end up in Los Angeles, just not for next season. D'Angelo Russell - a former Laker - has seen his name recently come up in talks as a potential option as well as free agent big men Nikola Vucevic, Brook Lopez, and DeAndre Jordan.

National Basketball Association free agency opens up on Sunday night.

The Lakers probably won't give Kevin Durant a max contract offer since a ruptured Achilles could keep him out until the 2020-2021 season.
