Spurs’ Leonard working out in Vegas

KLWith the NBA lockout in full effect, many NBA players and soon-to-be rookies have either been playing summer ball in Pro-Am leagues, gearing up for the FIBA summer games, or talking with their agents about the possibility of playing overseas.

However, San Antonio Spurs rookie Kawhi Leonard has been relatively quiet during this lockout.

Leonard was acquired in a deal on draft night that sent fan favorite George Hill to Indiana. And although Hill is thinking about taking his talents overseas during the lockout, Leonard (via The Salt Lake Tribune) has kept himself in the states working out in of all places, Las Vegas.

Since the season ended, Wesley moved to Las Vegas for 10 weeks for a stint with Impact Training that included a number of high profile stars including Jacob Pullen of Kansas State, Kawhi Leonard of San Diego State and Alec Burks of Colorodo.

It’s great to know Leonard has been quietly working out stateside and no news has yet to surface of him talking with teams overseas. So far, Leonard and rookie Cory Joespeh have yet to sign rookie contracts, so if they were to go overseas, I’m sure an opt-out clause will be in order.
