There was also another interest in the photo: the size of Leonard’s hands.center_img While the workouts tend to be innocent, the forthcoming free agency of 2019 — in which Leonard and Durant are expected to be available and the Lakers could put out a case for either of them — has raised the alert level to high for any potential signs that James could “recruit” another star to Southern California.The topic was intriguing enough to hit the morning talk show chatter. Shannon Sharpe of FS1’s Undisputed didn’t make much of it, but did stop to imagine: “LeBron, KD and Kawhi? Boy, somebody will be in a heap of trouble.” Despite the trappings of imagination, the UCLA workouts tend to lack true innuendo, with many superstars with past histories getting together to play ball under the direction of Rico Hines. Earlier in the week, Durant played with former teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden on the UCLA court.Still, Leonard is expected to be a big target for the Lakers next summer. The Riverside native is rumored to have Los Angeles aspirations after playing the first seven years of his career in San Antonio. Disagreements with the Spurs led to his trade to Toronto this offseason, and he has one more year on his deal. The Lakers, who could have a max slot to offer alongside James, could position themselves to scoop up the 27-year-old two-time Defensive Player of the Year next summer.Durant, who has a player option next summer, is also a potential free agent. But it remains to be seen if he is willing to leave Golden State, with whom he has won the last two NBA titles while facing James in the Finals.Related Articles It’s a Lakers’ dream: LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant playing together in L.A.For at least one day, it happened.The three best small forwards in basketball gathered at UCLA for a workout, one of the private sessions that go on during the offseason that annually draw some of the NBA’s biggest names.
