community news, Kawhi Leonards uncle asked for illegal perks in free agency

With the Clippers and Lakers set to meet on Christmas Day, Kawhi Leonard will face LeBron James and the team many predicted he’d sign with in free agency.

Leonard surprised people by heading to the Clippers instead of its rival Los Angeles franchise. The Athletic’s Sam Amick reports that some of the requests coming from Leonard’s uncle, Dennis Robertson, in free agency made the Lakers feel uncomfortable.

According to Amick, Robertson asked Lakers governor Jeanie Buss for Leonard to receive part ownership of the team, a private plane, a house and a guaranteed amount of off-court endorsement money to secure his commitment to the team. Robertson reportedly discussed his requests with Buss over three phone calls over the course of three days, and she made it clear that the perks were illegal and would not be met.
