Why the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics matters for Kawhi Leonard & Paul George

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been postponed due to COVID-19 the I.O.C (International Olympic Committee) announced on Monday. There is no set date but all signs point to the event happening next summer in 2021. With basketball being one of the events, we have to wonder what this means for LA Clippers’ stars, Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, who were finalists to make Team USA.

Both George and Leonard are slated to be free agents in the summer of 2021. While they do have player options, neither is expected to pick up the option as they will both be eligible for max contracts.
