Kawhi Leonard has always been the proud owner of lavish properties, and it is easy to see why. The Clippers star has been one of the most consistent offensive players, a two-time Champion, and a 5x NBA All-Star. So the fact that he has luxury properties to his name comes as no surprise, and now, he’s added one more to the list.

Recently, Kawhi Leonard bought a new home in LA. But this isn’t his first real-estate investment in the area. He already owns a $6.7 million penthouse at the Ritz Carlton, close to the Staples Center. And now, his latest purchase is a $17 million house in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of LA.

The 12000 ft grand property boasts a 10-person theatre and a 960 bottle wine cellar, among other amenities. The mansion, originally designed for Relativity Media CEO, was on sale for two years now. The Claw purchased it at a bargain price and hinted at a long stay in Los Angeles.

Does this signal the Claw’s long-term plans with the Clippers team?

Kawhi had earlier ignited the hopes of Raptors fans when the news of him buying a property in Toronto broke. However, he eventually made a tough decision and joined the Clippers instead.

Now, his buying another LA property could also mean that he might sell off the house near the Staples Center because the Clippers will have a new arena in the coming years.

Notably, his $103 million 3-year contract with the Clippers allows him to stay with the team until 2022 with a final year opt-out option. Also, he has won a title for every team he had played with, and he might want to stay with the Clippers until that happens.
