The final domino in 2019 free agency has fallen: Two-time NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard has chosen to join the L.A. Clippers, and he’s bringing along Paul George as well.
The Clippers traded for George from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night, and got a four-year commitment from Leonard following his meeting with the them, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Toronto Raptors.
This is the Battle for L.A. Podcast, part of the ClutchPoints network, hosted by CP’s Clippers reporter Tomer Azarly, CP’s Lakers reporter Ryan Ward, and former Lakers reporter Bob Garcia IV.
On this week’s episode of the Battle for L.A. Podcast, we discuss Clippers winning the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes in free agency while making the blockbuster trade for George as well as the Lakers’ reaction and response to the big splash moves with some acquisitions fo their own. Also, we touch upon how these major moves impact the rest of the league ahead of the 2019-20 season.
