ANALYSIS: Leonard holds a player option this summer, and if he opted out, would become an unrestricted free agent. O'Connor says that of the pursuing teams, league execs consider Dallas the "most serious threat" to get Leonard. But he also adds that indicators are that Leonard will remain in Los Angeles after he reportedly bought a $17.1 million house on the L.A. coastline in March.
