The San Antonio Spurs reportedly want to put any tension with star Kawhi Leonard in the past and reach an agreement with the forward on a supermax contract.
According to Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News, San Antonio wants to meet with Leonard's team "in a bid to mend fences and pave the way for Leonard to come to terms on a five-year, $219 million supermax contract that he will be eligible to receive starting July 1." Orsborn noted Leonard's decision to rehabilitate from his quadriceps injury away from the team and with his own group "created a rift between him and the Spurs, as well as many of their fans." He played a mere nine games during the regular season and missed the Spurs' first-round playoff loss to the Golden State Warriors. #kawhileonard #sanantoniospurs #supermaxdeal #nbarumors #westernconference #nbadefensiveplayeroftheyear #nbafinalsmvp #nbachampion #jamonboltonshow #bleacherreport
