Kawhi Leonard wanted to play with Kyrie Irving

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors dribbles the ball as Kawhi Leonard #2 of the Toronto Raptors defends during the second half of an National Basketball Association game at Scotiabank Arena on November 29, 2018 in Toronto, Canada.

Kawhi Leonard doesn't come across as much of a recruiter, but the star free agent was reportedly doing quite a bit of it this summer.

Kawhi Leonard toyed with the entire National Basketball Association this past week before finally deciding to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Raptors have a newer look now with Leonard no longer in the mix, but they still have the talent to be a contender in the Eastern Conference. Irving, however, had already had designs on forming a power duo with Durant in Brooklyn. For now, there are two clear possibilities for them to sign into the same franchise: Clippers and Knicks.

ESPN's Zach Lowe reported today that Leonard had called Irving about playing together, too.

Kawhi Leonard isn't Public Enemy No. 1 like Kevin Durant was when he went to the Warriors or LeBron James when he joined the Heat, but he's definitely got a stronger contingent of haters now. He managed to recruit point guard Paul George to play alongside him with the Clippers. One executive said Leonard "found his voice" during this process.

Never trust someone as quiet as Kawhi.
