Raptors’ Pascal Siakam jokes that he wants a house after Kawhi Leonard was offered a condo
Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam is also waiting for a freebie from the fans after helping the team win a championship.
It was reported last month that passionate Raptors fans offer Kawhi Leonard a luxurious condo to remain in Toronto. Leonard, who led the Raptors to their first-ever championship, is expected to enter free agency in July and it remains to be seen whether or not he will stay in .
Siakam was asked about his recruiting pitch for Leonard. The 25-year-old forward said that the free restaurant access and house offered to Leonard might be enough. He then jokingly said that he is also waiting for a similar offer this summer after having the best season of his career.
“I mean, except for all the free restaurants he can go to? The Ka’Wine and Dine? I even heard that somebody gave him a house or something? I mean, where’s my house at?” Siakam said, via Josh Lewenberg of The Sports Network.
Siakam, the 27th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, was a huge factor for the Raptors in their title run this season. In their 2019 NBA Finals showdown with the Golden State Warriors, the former New Mexico State standout averaged 19.8 points and 7.5 rebounds.
In the title-clinching game, Pascal finished with 26 points and 10 boards for Toronto.
