Since the LA Clippers signed Kawhi Leonard in free agency, they have failed to meet the championship expectations that were initially set. Sure, they made franchise history by reaching the Western Conference Finals in 2021, but that’s the furthest they have gone. Even then, Leonard was injured, which ultimately held the Clippers back.

Furthermore, despite how dominant he can be, the main issue with Leonard is his health. Because of this, the LA Clippers’ front office may look to move him during the offseason. This is the perfect opportunity to acquire another superstar, as many teams around the league are looking to adjust their rosters.

To solve the Clippers’ problems, here are three trades the front office should consider for Leonard.

3. Kawhi Leonard makes his return to Toronto.

After missing the play-in tournament, the Toronto Raptors may trade all they can to land a player of Kawhi Leonard’s stature. They have some of the best young talents in the world but are missing a superstar that can lead them to another championship.

Moreover, Leonard returns to the Raptors through a trade between Toronto and LA. Still, the Clippers receive Pascal Siakam and Scottie Barnes. This trade gives both parties what they need to succeed while solving their main issue.

Additionally, the LA Clippers find themselves with a much younger roster, which essentially guarantees them a strong future. This is the ideal scenario the front office is searching for, especially if Russell Westbrook resigns during the offseason.

In Toronto’s case, they receive one of the best players in the world who will rejoin a system he is already familiar with.
