Asked to handicap Leonard’s future, one front office executive from another team said, “I think the Lakers are out, but the Clippers are the ones who think they have a shot at him if they decide to go that route. You hear a lot, he still wants to be on the West Coast. But give that group in Toronto all the credit in the world. They’re making it a tough decision for him. “It might come down to just, ‘All right, how did the playoffs go, and how far are we from a championship?'”

The three finalists for this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player award — Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George — led the balloting for this year’s All-NBA teams, which were announced by the league Thursday afternoon. Antetokounmpo and George were named to the two forward spots on the first team, while Harden was joined by Stephen Curry as the first team guards. Rounding out the first team was Nikola Jokic. Antetokounmpo and Harden were unanimous first-team selections. By making a second consecutive All-NBA team, Antetokounmpo put himself in line to be handed the largest contract in NBA history by the Bucks next summer: a five-year deal worth $247.3 million, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. When he can receive it next July, Antetokounmpo will be one year away from free agency.
