ESPN Summer Forecast: Where will Kawhi Leonard start the 2019-20 season?
The Lakers weren't able to swing a trade for the former Finals MVP this summer, but the majority of our panel still thinks Leonard will be wearing purple and gold in 2019-20.

Leonard has reportedly stated his preference for playing in Los Angeles, making James' new squad the front-runners for when Leonard becomes a free agent next summer. Their Staples Center neighbors, the Clippers, also received votes, finishing just behind Toronto, the team that was able to eventually pry Leonard out of San Antonio.

Because of the Lakers' use of one-year contracts this offseason, they will almost certainly have the cap space necessary to lure Leonard back over the border in 2019. -- Reisinger

@KobeBryant's $6M investment in sports @drinkbodyarmor now worth $200M.
An investment made by Kobe Bryant has yielded more than 30 times its money in fewer than four-and-a-half years.
On Tuesday, Coca-Cola announced it purchased a minority stake in sports drink BodyArmor.
Bryant made his first investment in the brand, for roughly 10 percent of the company, in March 2014, putting in a total of roughly $6 million over time. Based on the valuation of the Coca-Cola deal, his stake is now worth approximately $200 million, sources told ESPN.
Bryant is now the fourth largest investor in the brand, marketed as a healthier competitor to Gatorade, behind the brand's co-founder Mike Repole, Coca-Cola and Keurig Dr Pepper. When he invested in BodyArmor, the brand had just come off a year of $10 million in sales. BodyArmor is projected to top $400 million in sales in 2018.
Bryant, who earned $328 million on the court in his 20-year NBA career and a similar amount off of it over that time, announced his investment in BodyArmor on the same day he announced the start of his new company, Kobe Inc. He since has formed a $100 million joint venture investment firm with entrepreneur Jeff Stibel and started his own production company, Granity Studios, which won an Oscar in 2018 for best animated short for his "Dear Basketball" film.
As part of their endorsement deals, many athletes had equity stakes in BodyArmor. Sources tell ESPN that as many as a dozen superstar athletes could also have stakes themselves in BodyArmor worth more than $1 million including James Harden, Dustin Johnson and Andrew Luck.
Bryant's return is the biggest return for a modern day athlete in the business world in some time. LeBron James made $30 million in a small stake in Beats by Dre when it sold to Apple in May 2014. James and his business partner Maverick Carter put less than $1 million into fast-casual pizza chain Blaze in 2012. That investment is now worth approximately $40 million.
