Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors enjoyed their NBA Finals parade on Monday, with millions of people showing up for it, but now it's time to look ahead to free agency.

The NBA Finals MVP is set to hit free agency when it begins on Sunday, June 30. Several teams will be interested, of course, but how many teams will Leonard actually consider?

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Get Up! this morning that Leonard's "focus" is on two teams.

Those two teams: Clippers and Raptors.

"Kawhi Leonard's focused on Los Angeles, but it's the Clippers, not the Lakers," Woj reported. "No. 1, they don't have the money to sign him. No. 2, the idea of him being a third wheel on a team trying to be a super team, that has not been his M.O."

"This will be a Raptors-Clippers fight down the end."

ESPN's Damon Jones had reported on Monday that the Lakers were a potential destination for Leonard.

“Now it’s a lot of things that have to happen. The Lakers need to clear the cap space although Kawhi Leonard right now is still contemplating if he is going to go back to Toronto and if he does that, it would be on a shorter deal,” Jones said.

NBA free agency is set to begin on Sunday, June 30.
