Kawhi Leonard poses for pic next to Kobe Bryant after workout
Toronto Raptors swingman Kawhi Leonard was putting in work this summer, as a recent photo saw him posing next to Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant in what could be seen as an omen for those hoping he stays in Toronto past this 2018-19 season.
While Bryant has been known to help plenty of people, including Kyrie Irving, Isaiah Thomas, and recently Kyle Kuzma — this will surely fan the flames of a potential move to the Los Angeles Lakers in the offseason of 2019.

While we forgot our Kawhi Leonard smile-o-meter at home, the eye test scans a little happiness from Leonard’s eyes, opposed to the usual serious face he’s been known to sport throughout his career.
Leonard is coming off playing a mere nine games for the San Antonio Spurs this past season before he was traded alongside Danny Green for DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl.
Raptors president Masai Ujiri is hoping to convince Leonard to remain in Toronto past this upcoming season, but his camp had already expressed his desire to join the Lakers once he became a free agent.
Furthermore, the purple-and-gold made a plethora of one-year deals, keeping the utmost flexibility heading into the summer of 2019, time in which they will be surefire bidders in The Klaw and his services.
