Looks like LeBron James is hoping to get Kawhi Leonard to make the move to the West Coast.

Following the Raptor’s win against the LA Lakers on Thursday night, LeBron was caught on camera, apparently saying “We’ll be in touch” to Leonard during a post-game handshake.

The interaction was also captured on camera.

Of course, this sent the internet into a whirlwind of speculation about Leonard’s future with the Raptors as he will be a free agent this summer.

This isn’t the first time there has been speculation about Leonard leaving the Raptors.

In January, it was reported that Leonard purchased a brand new $13.3 million home in California. Fans on social media were jumping to conclusions upon hearing the news.

With the home being located nearly three hours away from the Staples Centre (home of the Lakers and Clippers), it is safe to say this could just be a place for an offseason getaway.

As for LeBron’s ominous comments who knows what “we’ll be in touch” could actually mean.

Maybe it was an invite to hang out after Leonard is done with playoffs — since it looks LeBron and the Lakers won’t be making them.

Either way, stay calm Raptors fans. Kawhi is still here, and they’ve got a championship to focus on.
