Kawhi Leoanrd Offically Becomes a Clipper


The LA Clippers have officially signed forward Kawhi Leonard and announced their blockbuster trade for fellow All-Star Paul George.  

The Clippers completed their deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder, acquiring George for guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, forward Danilo Gallinari and five first-round draft picks.

The Clippers surrendered their first-rounders in 2022, 2024 and 2026, plus sent ones for 2021 and 2023 that were obtained through Miami, to Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City also has the right to swap first-round picks with the Clippers in 2023 and 2025.

Financial terms of Leonard's new deal were not released, but multiple outlets report he signed a shorter three-year contract worth just over 103-million-dollars.

It was previously reported he would ink a four-year pact.  

The duo would now both be eligible to become NBA free agents again in 2021.
