Patrick Beverley hasn’t reached out to Kawhi Leonard, says players know what Clippers bring to the table
Leonard is said to be deciding between the Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors. Beverley says he doesn’t need to recruit Leonard if the two-time Finals MVP wants to get his hands dirty and win some games.
Patrick Beverley's pitch to Kawhi Leonard- "If you played against us, you know what we bring. We're gonna play hard & we're gonna leave it all on the line. You wanna go glitz & glamor? That's fine. If you wanna come & get your hands dirty & do some dirty work…?"#Clippers pic.twitter.com/fquYv8Cjsg

The Clippers would have two of the best defenders in the NBA on their roster if Leonard signs with them. Beverley is an elite perimeter defender and Leonard is arguably the best two-way player in the NBA. Needless to say, opponents would have nightmares going up against the Clips if Leonard joins them.
The Clippers won 48 games this past season without having a single All-Star on the squad. Imagine how deadly the team would be with Leonard on it. Fans of the Clips have been fantasizing about this summer ever since the Tobias Harris trade. It would be a buzzkill if LAC isn’t able to land Leonard, who is from California.
LeBron James has been recruiting Kawhi to the Lakers. Beverley is fully confident in Steve Ballmer and Doc Rivers to get Leonard to the Clippers. If it doesn’t happen, life goes on for the Chicago native.
