Rumor: Celtics likely to give free agent Kawhi Leonard an offer sheet in summer

Along with every other free agent.

This summer should be a lot of fun.  I don't know what chance the Celtics have at landing any of the big name free agents, but there's going to at least be interest in most of them, including a dynamic wing with Championship experience (according to Gary Washburn).

Boston Globe

Kawhi Leonard said he is 100 percent healthy again, giving the Spurs their most versatile player back for the stretch run. Leonard will be a restricted free agent this summer and will receive his share of offer sheets, likely including one from the Celtics. Boston coach Brad Stevens gushed about Leonard's defensive prowess

I mean, I'm pretty sure that every team with cap space will at least consider an offer to Leonard. Every hint seems to point toward him returning to the Spurs to be the future face of that franchise, but you never know.  It never hurts to pick up the phone.  Same goes for Marc Gasol and any number of others.
