On July 7th, Beijing time, Bruce, a well-known sports journalist in Toronto, reported on the championship star Leonard. He detailed the small card in this report and refused the Raptors and the Lakers to switch to the Clippers. Insider news of the team.
First, the reporter pointed out that earlier this week, Leonard’s team asked the Raptors to get the possibility of the Thunder’s superstar Paul George, or the Wizards’ Bradley Bill. At that time, the Raptors general manager Ujeri took this request into consideration, but the Leonard team made additional requests, which made the Raptors feel that the small card actually focused on going to Los Angeles because of his proposal. The requirements are less difficult for the Clippers, but the difficulty for the Raptors with full salary space is too great. It is from this time, the Raptors began to believe that the small card is not serious about wanting to return to the team.
Second, the Thunder and the Raptors started negotiations, but the Thunder’s offer was very high. The Thunder asked the Raptors for Siacom and Van Fleet and four unprotected first-round picks. The asking price was very high. This makes the Raptors feel that this is a starting price, without any sincerity, so the Raptors rejected such a trading plan.
Third, between the Clippers and the Lakers, the small card and his squad are more inclined to join the Clippers, not the Lakers, although the Lakers were considered a hot spot, but because the Lakers have signed James and Dai Weiss, they didn't give the card the autonomy, and the Clippers had a huge salary space and the possibility of trading. After getting the card, they can sign another one for the card. Super star. During the period, the small card team had evaluated the interest of Butler and the small card, but then Butler quickly confirmed to join the Heat, so the card turned to George.
