Toronto turned into a paparazzi town Wednesday, with social media and mainstream media buzzing about Kawhi Leonard as the NBA free agency game continues.
Kawhi is Toronto’s NBA championship MVP and is believed to have been here Wednesday, meeting with Toronto Raptors management at the Hazelton Hotel.
Raptors fans flocked to Yorkville to try and get a glimpse of the basketball superstar, who was actually never captured up close in a photo.
Overhead footage of what appeared to be Kawhi getting off an MLSE plane was shown repeatedly, and helicopters trailed a couple of SUVs on the Gardiner Expressway, with one of them believed to have been transporting Kawhi to the Hazelton Hotel.
It’s believed Kawhi Leonard has also entertained meetings with the L.A. Clippers and the L.A. Lakers, leading to speculation he might return to his home state of California.
But there has been every indication Leonard wants to return to defend the Raptors NBA championship title and will re-sign with the Raptors.
