Much has been made about the future of Kawhi Leonard with the Los Angeles Clippers. The two-time NBA champ could actually walk away from LA this summer if he so pleases, but according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, this might not be the case.

Woj is as knowledgable as they come with regard to what’s going on within and around the league, so what he has to say here about Leonard’s outlook in LA should make Clippers fans happy:

“I think Kawhi is staying with the Clippers,” Woj said in a recent episode of his podcast, The Woj Pod (h/t Mason Bissada of “He hasn’t said that publicly, and he probably won’t until the day he signs that contract. I know there’s been some mention of Miami. ‘Could Miami be a sleeper for him?’ I think he’s where he wants to be geographically. I think he’s gotten along very well with the organization, with management, with ownership.”

Leonard is actually still in contract with the Clippers until the end of the 2021-22 season, but the thing is, he has a player option on his deal for next term. This means that if he wants to, he could opt to walk away in the offseason as a free agent.

As Woj indicated, however, Kawhi seems to be happy in LA. The arrival of Tyronn Lue as the team’s head coach may have also had a significant impact on Leonard’s decision to remain with the team:

“I think Ty Lue has really, really been good for them this year,” Wojnarowski continued. “The way it’s been described for me with Ty in LA is: Ty can hit you without leaving a bruise. He can coach you hard, can hold guys accountable, and I think that’s an environment Kawhi likes.”

Finally, Woj was quick to remind everyone that Leonard signing an extension with the Clippers in the offseason is anything but a certainty at this point. At the end of the day, how the Clippers fare in the postseason will be a key determining factor in Kawhi’s future with the franchise:

“But listen,” he said, “things can go sideways when all of a sudden you get knocked out [of the playoffs] earlier than you expect.”

Would it be safe to say that it’s championship or bust for the Clippers this season? Will they end up blowing up the entire team if they fail? Only time will tell.
