After having not spoken publically since March, Kawhi Leonard will have his voice heard on a pretty large platform in the not so distant future. The Toronto Raptors will be holding an introductory press conference for Leonard at the end of September.
The conference will be held on Friday, Sept. 21 along with a Media Day on the 24th. This is interesting timing because training camp starts the following week.
Report: Raptors to hold introductory press conference for Kawhi Leonard https://t.co/DddE2AwySG— Kurt Helin (@basketballtalk) September 11, 2018
Leonard is a pretty reserved individual so will be intriguing to see how deep his responses are about the excitement of joining a new team. He has always been the type of guy to give shorter, less informative answers to interview questions.
A ton of drama has gone down since the last time Leonard has been behind the microphone. He should mentally prepare himself for the press to be asking him a ton of questions, including some uncomfortable ones regarding his beef with Pop and his former San Antonio
