Clippers star Kawhi Leonard has now purchased his third California home, a seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom, $17.1 million mansion.

Kawhi Leonard is certainly playing a real-life game of Monopoly as he continues to snatch up property in Southern California. The Clippers star had already owned two other homes in California, a unit at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live, and a home outside San Diego, before purchasing his latest piece of property.

The two-time NBA champion has reportedly purchased an almost 12,0000-square-foot, Pacific Palisades, seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom mansion valued at $17.1 million.

With the purchase, Leonard now moves into the same neighborhood as his teammate Paul George, who bought his Pacific Palisades Los Angeles home in late 2019 for $16 million.

What Kawhi Leonard’s mansion purchase could mean for the Clippers

Leonard has a $36 million player option for the 2021-22 season. When you combine the Clippers’ recent struggles with the fact that his market value is probably higher in terms of annual salary, he could very well decline the option.

The Clippers look like they need to make a move before Thursday’s trade deadline and are running out of time. They entered the All-Star break on a three-game losing streak. The Clippers are now 4-2 since the break and fourth in the Western Conference.

At 29-year-old, Leonard is averaging 26.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.9 assists through his first 35 games. He’s also shooting just over 51 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from 3-point range. So, yes, He’s still very good.

Could the purchase of yet another LA home mean thatThe Claw has faith that the Clippers front office will get them over the hump this season?
