NBA free agency officially kicks off this weekend and the rumors of potential landing spots for the top free agents are running rampant.

Most of the speculation this off-season revolves around a handful of free agents. Kawhi Leonard might be the best of them all.

Leonard led the Toronto Raptors to an NBA title in what could be his only season as a member of the Raptors. Toronto and the Los Angeles Clippers are the front-runners for Kawhi, according to multiple reports.

However, the Los Angeles Lakers have emerged as a potential landing spot for the game's best two-way player.

Earlier this morning on Get Up, basketball analyst Jay Williams had a controversial take on Leonard's free agency.

"If Kawhi leaves the Raptors for the Lakers THAT would be the weakest move I’ve ever seen by the most dominant player in our game right now," Williams said.

Fans watching the segment at home and reacting on Twitter weren't happy with Williams' comments.

Of course, the go-to argument against Williams is Kevin Durant's decision to join the Golden State Warriors. After losing to the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, Durant left Oklahoma City to join the super-team.

Leonard is reportedly set to visit the Lakers, Clippers and Raptors in free agency.

Stay tuned.
