NBA Odds: Warriors Have Better Chance Signing Kawhi Leonard Than Lakers

As the Warriors attempt to become the first team to three-peat since the Lakers of the early 2000s, there's been one big question hanging over the team -- what will Kevin Durant do this summer in free agency? 

The same can't be said to same extent with the Raptors, but Toronto has their own superstar in the NBA Finals who very well could be out there door. Like Durant, many people expect Kawhi Leonard to find a new team this summer. 

Caesars Palace Sports Book currently has the Clippers as the favorites to sign Leonard with -200 odds. The Raptors are right behind them, but there's quite the surprising team with the fourth-best odds, well ahead of the Lakers.

Could the Warriors really go from Durant to Leonard as their next superstar? Well, it wouldn't exactly be that easy.

Contractually, the Warriors couldn't just hand the money they'd save to Leonard if Durant leaves. A move like this would require quite the roster shakeup, most likely to core players like Klay Thompson -- who is a free agent this summer -- or Draymond Green. 

Would the Warriors consider it, though? With this franchise and the opening of the Chase Center next season, never say never.
