Kawhi Leonard was linked to the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers during the offseason when he was on the trade block as the destinations he preferred in his 2019 free agency.
"What the Clippers are doing right now is very below the radar," said Adrian Wojnarowski on his podcast with Zach Lowe. "What they've done to put themselves in position. They didn't gut themselves and they're not tanking. They're putting a competitive team on the floor.
"I think, right now, with Kawhi Leonard, they have a better than not chance of getting him. We know things will change. He could love Toronto."
Wojnarowski added that maybe the situation could change if the Raptors reach The Finals.
"The Clippers are in great position with (Leonard)," said Wojnarowski. "They have two max slots. They will be heard from again, I think, in these Jimmy Butler trade talks."
Wojnarowski added he believes the Clippers have done a good job in collecting hard playing role players that stars want to play with.
The Clippers have also been strongly linked with a pursuit of Kevin Durant in free agency.
