Kawhi Leonard Tried To Recruit Kyrie Irving To Join Clippers

According to Charania, Green turned down more lucrative offers from other teams in order to return to the Clippers, as he hopes to win a championship with them.

Sources told ESPN that Leonard wanted to play with George.

If the LA Clippers didn't have the best bench before, now there appears to be no more room for debate. Let's take a look at some possibilities.

The Kentucky product becomes the second Warrior to leave the Bay for LA, with point guard Quinn Cook reportedly agreeing to sign a two-year deal to join the Lakers as well. Last season, he sat out in 22 games for the Raptors due to rest, but that is understandable because he was coming off a serious injury a year before.

Johnson, the eighth overall pick in the 2015 draft, averaged 6.9 points in 18 minutes a night last season, in stints with Detroit and New Orleans.

Both are California natives. But in an added twist, Leonard wasn't the only All-Star the Clippers got, as trading for Paul George was a prerequisite to landing the reigning NBA Finals MVP.

Give Leonard's camp a lot of credit, nobody envisioned a scenario where Paul George would accompany Kawhi to LA with the hopes of leading another team to their first National Basketball Association title. Prior to the Lakers-Clippers summer league matchup Saturday, Rivers strutted into the arena dressed in all black, face tanned from golfing and a bright smile because his franchise and his perception has been resurrected over the past two years. No one in the league can match up with them in terms of overall talent aside from maybe the Milwaukee Bucks. L.A. will win the championship next season.

The New York Knicks were perhaps the biggest losers in free agency, though, after the team's management, who had said to expect big moves, whiffed on signing Durant and he instead went to the Brooklyn Nets along with Kylie Irving.

The Eastern Conference will be treacherous, with the Celtics right in the middle of the fracas; not a favorite, but with the chance to soar to the top if they receive some good fortune.

Ballmer and his fellow Clippers execs didn't want Leonard to team up with James.

That's a deep roster, that will definitely make the playoffs and compete for a championship.
