Kawhi Leonard Addresses NBA Investigation

The Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Utah Jazz 125-105 in preseason action and all the media wanted to know was if Kawhi Leonard had anything to say about the recent news regarding his decision to join the Clippers via free-agency. 

Johnny Wilkes is suing Jerry West for $2.5 million in damages, allegedly he played a big part in landing Leonard with the Clippers, and wants to be compensated like West apparently told he him would be. 

Leonard addressed the media after the game and openly discussed what was being said and you have to admit, he has a point...

Not at all. That has nothing to do with me. Nobody swayed my mind to go (to the Clippers).

I'm from L.A. and I grew up here my whole life. And out here, people try to find any way to get some money. It probably won't be the last. I know a lot of people out here.

The NBA has open an investigation once TMZ sports released the details regarding the lawsuit.

For the Clippers, expect Leonard to move on from this pretty quick and the team to improve on last season. They might want to start with changing headlines.
