Los Angeles Clippers superstar small forward Kawhi Leonard purchased a $13.3 million, 13,000 square foot home in Rancho Santa Fe, California last year while he was still playing for the Toronto Raptors.
Set on a lot of more than five acres, the Tuscan-style estate has been renovated and updated for modern-day living.
Leonard signed a three-year deal with the Clippers last summer in free agency after guiding the Raptors to the 2019 title over the Golden State Warriors in six games. The two-time Defensive Player of the Year was born and raised in California.
Leonard, who played two seasons of college basketball at San Diego State University before entering the 2011 NBA Draft, has to be loving this house.

This majestic house has a workout facility, home theater, gourmet kitchen and two offices. There’s also a wine vault for wine and food tasting.
Leonard’s house has seven bedroom suites. There are 10.5 bathrooms in all for the two-time Finals MVP and his family.
Outdoors, the grounds center on a multi-section pool complete with a raised spa, a conversation/fire pit, waterfall features and Baja decks. There are also various patio areas and a tennis court.

When news surfaced that Leonard purchased this house last season, rumors began to swirl that he was going to leave the Raptors after just one season to sign with either the Clippers or Los Angeles Lakers.
Those rumors turned out to be true, although Leonard doesn’t stay in this house during the season, as the mansion is three hours away from Playa Vista, where the Clippers practice. Leonard lives in this gorgeous house during the offseason, where he surely had a lot of fun last summer after winning his second title and second Finals MVP.
Kawhi Leonard, who began his NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs, has career averages of 18.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 518 games with the Spurs, Raptors and Clippers. He’s a four-time All-Star and one of the best defenders of all time.
Leonard was scheduled to make $32,742,000 before the 2019-20 season was suspended due to COVID-19. He will make $34,379,100 in 2020-21 and has a player option worth $36,016,200 for the 2021-22 season.
