As more of this story develops, the more we're inclined to think that Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs are at the end of their storied relationship.
In one of his recent podcasts, Nate Robinson gave a telling update on the future of Leonard and the Spurs: "From what I heard, from a little birdie, what I heard that the reason why he doesn’t, not that he doesn’t want to play, is that he doesn’t want to be in San Antonio no more, is because that I heard a big bag was coming. But if he doesn’t leave San Antonio that bag is not coming.”
Based off of Robinson's words here, it sounds as if he is suggesting that San Antonio may be trying to get Kawhi to take some sort of pay cut. Has this been the real reason for this holdout?
We may never know the reason, but we'll definitely be here to witness the aftermath.
