So, this could be a pretty pivotal offseason for the Raptors, yeah? The basketball world is waiting to see where Kawhi Leonard will sign, and it’s no understatement to see that wherever he goes, the power balance of the NBA will shift with him.
At least one other Raptor is taking a wait-and-see approach to their own free agency. Given a hypothetical on The Breakfast Club to choose between the Raptors and the Lakers, Danny Green says that, if all else were equal with regards to the financials, his decision will depend on who else returns to Toronto.
Aside from Kawhi, Marc Gasol is the other Raptor notable who could hit free agency, but it’s regarded as unlikely that he would opt out of his $25.6 million option for next season. After winning it all this year, there’s the potential to bring everybody back for another ride.
With how things went this year, Green was definitely happy to come along from San Antonio in the Kawhi trade.
