Kawhi Leonard has decided to re-sign with the Clippers in free agency, according to Yahoo! Sports' Chris Haynes, who reported Thursday that Leonard is reportedly signing a four-year deal with a player option. The contract is worth up to $176.3 million deal, per The Athletic's Shams Charania. Leonard, 30, opted out of his $36 million player option to reach the new deal.
The five-time All-Star averaged 24.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game last season, and was named All-NBA First Team for the third time.
He was averaging 30.4 points per game in the playoffs until he suffered a partially torn ACL in the Western Conference semifinals against the Jazz and missed the rest of the postseason. Los Angeles was eventually eliminated in six games by the Suns in the Western Conference finals with Leonard sidelined.
Leonard had offseason surgery to repair his ACL and it is unclear when he will return to play for the Clippers in what will be his 10th year in the NBA.
L.A. have been relatively quiet this offseason, reportedly bringing back both Nic Batum and Reggie Jackson in free agency but making no major additions.
