Let’s pour a little gasoline on the “Kawhi Leonard to the Lakers” fire, shall we?
Leonard recently purchased a Tuscan-style estate in a San Diego County community for $13.3 million using a corporate entity that lists the NBA All-Star as manager, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The five-acre property features a dry bar, home theater, gourmet kitchen, wine vault, seven bedrooms, 10 1/2 bathrooms and a multi-section pool.
Leonard, 27, will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. Though he’s enjoyed a nice first half with the Raptors averaging 27.6 points and 7.9 rebounds, the Los Angeles native is expected to move westward this offseason and potentially join LeBron James as a member of the Lakers.
Leonard’s swanky new SoCal digs would make a nice venue for a “Welcome Home” party.
