Skip Bayless says he won’t rule out Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant signing with the Clippers

Kawhi Leonard Kevin Durant

Could the Los Angeles Clippers end up landing both Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant this summer? Skip Bayless thinks it’s possible.

On Undisputed on Monday morning, Bayless said that he thinks the Clippers could pull off such a haul this offseason:

Bayless is not the first person to mention this, as the possibility of Leonard and Durant joining the Clippers in free agency has been discussed fairly frequently throughout the year.

Of course, the Clippers would need to open up a second max slot to make that happen and would probably need to trade Danilo Gallinari in order to make that come to fruition.

Also, Durant’s torn Achilles has apparently made some teams, including the Clippers, back off of their pursuit of the superstar forward, according to Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report. So, you have to wonder just how interested Los Angeles remains in giving Durant a max deal.

The Clippers are coming off of a season in which they won 48 games and shocked the NBA world by landing the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Los Angeles then pushed Durant’s Golden State Warriors to six games in the first round of the playoffs.

With a young roster led by guys like Montrezl Harrell and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the Clippers certainly have a bright future and if they can add Leonard this summer, they will instantly become title contenders.

Remember, though: even if the Clips sign both Leonard and Durant, Durant will be out for all of next season as he recovers from his Achilles injury.
