Danny Green Thinks Kawhi Was Only Seriously Considering 2 Teams

Danny Green Thinks Kawhi Was Only Seriously Considering 2 Teams

"Cook said that Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka told him that he was "the flawless fit" to share point-guard duties with Rajon Rondo and LeBron James after winning an National Basketball Association title out of two Finals appearances with the Warriors". Both can become free agents after the 2020-21 season. I think it was between them and going back (to Toronto). The Lakers also have a few players that are very familiar with Cousins, as Anthony Davis and Rajon Rondo both played with Cousins in New Orleans. Leonard didn't make his choice until July 5.

In the first photo of him after signing on with the Lakers - Cousins is looking less bulky and more skinny than any other time since he's been in the league. "And each day that went by, I checked in with 'Whi and I'm like, 'Yo, what's going on with your meeting?' 'I have a meeting tomorrow.' So, like, 'Tomorrow?"

It was supposed to be a "Welcome to Los Angeles" housewarming gift from LeBron James to Anthony Davis: LeBron was giving up his No. 23 to Davis and going back to the No. 6 he wore in Miami. However, Cousins said he is feeling healthy after a quad issue kept him out from much of the playoffs. "Kind of come full circle".

Green continued to say that he didn't think he and Kawhi would be teaming up on the Los Angeles Lakers, who Green quickly signed with after Leonard finally announced his decision.


"I think what we owe to the fans here is that our time here is not responding to critics or criticism", Pelinka said. I'm excited about it.

The Lakers reportedly believed they were the favorite for Kawhi, but one of Leonard's teammates suggested the Lakers were never in the hunt. I had no idea. I checked in with him all the time.

"I had brief conversations with them after it, they think they got lucky with it", Green said. "I had no idea where he was going".
