      There is no official confirmation but media reports suggest that the Toronto Raptors have lost their superstar forward.

      ESPN says that unrestricted free agent Kawhi Leonard has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers.

      He will reportedly be paid $142 million over four years.

      Last month, Leonard led the Raptors to their first NBA championship.

      He was named the most valuable player in the final series against the Golden State Warriors.

      The 28-year-old was born in Los Angeles and wanted to be traded to the L.A. Lakers last year when he wanted out of San Antonio.

      However, he ended up in Toronto for one season, where he became hugely popular with the Canadian fans.

      Even after he signed with a California team, they're sending messages of love to Leonard with the hashtag #thankyoukawhi.


      Leonard came to Toronto last season with shooting guard Danny Green in a deal with the Spurs.

      ESPN has reported that the 32-year-old Green, who was also an unrestricted free agent, has signed a two-year, $30-million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
