The Toronto Raptors will get the last crack at Kawhi Leonard in free agency.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that Leonard will allow the Raptors to make the final presentation among the teams visiting with him in Los Angeles next week.

Earlier this week Leonard declined his player option to enter free agency unrestricted, as he was expected to do all along.

According to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, Leonard also intends to meet with the Los Angeles Lakers and the LA Clippers. In the same report, Haynes states that Leonard is "seriously considering re-signing with the Raptors", but he still has other meetings lined up.

Along with the Lakers and Clippers, the New York Knicks are also working on securing a meeting with the two-way superstar.

The Lakers have just cleared the cap space to sign a max contract free agent. The Clippers and Knicks each have two available max contract spots.

Leonard is the highest-touted free agent on the market this offseason, coming off of a historic playoff run in which he averaged 30.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game en route to an NBA title and Finals MVP.
