Preferential Treatment Of Kawhi Leonard ‘Ruffled The Feathers’ Of Clippers’ Teammates


The preferential treatment that Kawhi Leonard received from the Los Angeles Clippers last season “ruffled the feathers of some teammates,” sources told Jovan Buha and Joe Vardon of The Athletic. 

Patrick Beverley, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams reportedly “bristled” when Leonard was allowed to take games off. Leonard played in 57 games last season. 

Leonard, who lived in San Diego last year, was also “often” late for team flights. 

In addition, Leonard was allowed to control when he was pulled from games. 

The team hired Ty Lue to replace Doc Rivers as head coach on Thursday.

The Clippers plan on having Leonard and Paul George on the roster “for multiple years.”
