Last week, the growing faction of Raptors fans confident Kawhi Leonard will stay in Toronto beyond this season got a boost in the form of a rumour that he’d bought property in the city.
On Sunday, the three-time All Star made it clear that hasn’t transpired... yet.
Kawhi got asked about the buying property rumor. "No, it didn't happen yet."

The “yet” there must be tantalizing for the “he stay” clan and harkens back to one of the classic scenes in the criminally-underrated John Cusack film from 2000, High Fidelity:
It’s possible that Leonard threw that ‘yet’ in as a diabolical troll, but the word “diabolical” doesn’t seem to describe him very well — not that any word truly does.
Unfortunately for the Raptors and their fans everywhere, it seems there just isn’t going to be a definitive answer on Kawhi’s fate in the immediate future. Luckily, being up 3-1 over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals is some consolation.
