While the Knicks are planning an "aggressive" pursuit of Leonard, as SNY's Ian Begley has reported, the two-time NBA Finals MVP reportedly has his sights set on the Clippers, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported last week.
That said, Leonard is also "seriously considering" re-signing with the NBA champion Raptors, according to Yahoo! Sports' Chris Haynes, as Toronto is the only team that can offer him a five-year max deal.
The Knicks, who have ennough salary cap space to sign two free agents to max deals, and the Clippers can offer him a four-year, $140 million max deal, while the Raptors are the only team that can offer a five-year, $190 million contract.
