He later relocated to Los Angeles and signed as a free agent with the Clippers in July 2019.

The Indiana Pacers picked Leonard with the 15th overall choice in the 2011 NBA draught, but he was dealt to the San Antonio Spurs that night along with the rights to Erazem Lorbek and Dvis Bertns in exchange for George Hill. He signed a multi-year contract with the Spurs on December 10, 2011, following the end of the NBA lockout. Leonard and teammate Tiago Splitter were chosen to represent Team Chuck in the 2012 Rising Stars Challenge. He dressed for the event but did not play due to a calf issue.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Kawhi Leonard also surpassed James Worthy as the youngest player in NBA Finals history to score at least 25 points on more than 75% shooting from the field. Although Leonard concluded the game with a career-high 29 points, the offense was overshadowed by Leonard’s defensive performance. He limited LeBron James to 22 points and 14 field-goal attempts while forcing him to commit seven turnovers. In the second half, James had five more turnovers than makes (three). The San Antonio Spurs went on to win the game 111-92 and the series in five games. Kawhi Leonard was awarded Finals MVP in 2014.
